Join Yvonne Brandenburg, RVT, VTS SAIM and Jordan Porter RVT, LVT, VTS SAIM as we talk about:
- Squished faces + stress = Brachycephalic Airway Obstruction Syndrome (BAOS) which, naturally, can lead to further and further problems. You know, because it is IM. We discussed this week when there is not enough room in a pet's head to adequately breathe, how that affects the rest of the body.
