BOAS Surgery

VCI Approved for 9.5 CVE Credits 

BOAS is a complex, congenital multi-level airway disorder that has a massive impact on animal welfare. Due to the popularity of brachycephalic breeds, we have witnessed an explosion in their ownership, an increased prevalence of the condition and patients presented earlier and with more severe manifestations of the condition.
