Pet Soft Palate

Because of many years of bad breeding, Brachycephalic breeds can have trouble breathing because of their abnormal anatomy.

Pet Soft Palate Resection

Soft palate correction can be combined with stenotic nares repair, and laryngeal sacculectomy however, it is not recommended to combine all 3 procedures with another elective surgery [ie: spay/neuter] due to the more invasive nature and increased risk of swelling or bleeding post-soft palate correction surgery.

Potential complications of soft palate surgery and saccule removal can be emergent and severe, leading to additional procedures such as a temporary tracheostomy, prolonged hospitalization while remaining intubated, or other devastating consequences.

It is ALWAYS recommended patients stay overnight at a 24-hour facility for monitoring the first 24-48 hours post-operatively.
