About this course

We are hoping to deliver this course on Wednesday 6th July 2022 however due to the ongoing pandemic and wider implications on the RVC we can not take bookings at this time.  In the meantime please register your interest with us and we will contact you when the course is bookable.

Would you like to enhance your skills in managing BOAS patients? 

Brachycephalic dogs are increasingly popular pets and can be extremely challenging to manage in the hospital environment. They are high-risk patients and require special techniques to care for them. This is a multi-disciplinary lecture and practical course. There will be lectures from specialists in emergency and critical care, anaesthesia and surgery. We will discuss tips and tricks for managing these patients smoothly and enable you to be in the best possible position to reduce the risks for them and alleviate their owners’ fears and stress.

The course will also have a cadaver practical allowing delegates to review and practice surgical techniques such as wedge resection rhinoplasty, partial staphylectomy, tonsillectomy and temporary tracheostomy tube placement. In addition we will discuss post-operative recovery and how best to manage these patients when hospitalised.

Why do this course? 
This course is ideal if you would like to enhance the care you and your team can offer these challenging cases.
