Dogs such as bulldogs, french bulldogs and pugs are all classed as brachycephalic due to their short muzzle and "squashed" facial appearance. Their popularity has grown massively over recent years but unfortunately they also potentially have some serious health problems. Including elongated pallets and narrow nostrils which can cause breathing difficulties.
They can also have a condition called Screw tail which is a malformation of the tail bones causing skin problems and severe pain.We are also able to correct a common condition called Cherry eye which is often seen in Bulldog type breeds but is correctable.
Lauren is experienced in carrying out all of these corrective surgeries having been trained for many years at a fellow practice Walpole and Bingham. All corrective surgery can be done on site using our specialist equipment.
