Brachycephalic breeds are very commonly seen in small animal practice. The common upper airway anomalies encountered include primary problems of elongated soft palate, stenotic nares, chonal atresia overdevelopment of the nasal turbinates, macroglossia and tracheal hypoplasia. Failure to address some of these issues in young dogs will lead to the development of secondary changes including laryngeal collapse, tracheal collapse, tonsillar and pharyngeal hyperplasia, hiatial hernia, GIT changes and even as well as cardiac changes. Early assessment and correction of these anomalies is essential. This lecture covers how to competently assess and treat these delightful animals. Post-operative management and monitoring as well as how to minimise complications is addressed.

Tracheal collapse is an insidious progressive condition of toy and miniature breeds. The condition is best diagnosed as early as possible by fluoroscopy and tracheoscopy. Although tracheal collapse is not curable there are several treatment approaches that make a big difference to these little dogs. The use of extra tracheal and intra tracheal stenting is described and discussed.
