At our clinic we take special care in recognizing and treating specific diseases particular to these breeds such as entropion, skinfold dermatitis, stenotic nares and brachycephalic obstructive syndrome. We also have a modified anesthesia protocol especially designed for short muzzled dogs and cats to ensure their safety.
