UPPER AIRWAY SYNDROME - RESULTS OF A CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDY IN NORWICH TERRIERS
In Norwich Terriers it is likely that upper airway syndrome is a separate and different condition from brachycephalic airway syndrome, with distinctive, primary changes arising in the larynx. This webinar will summarize the Norwich Terrier Upper Airway Syndrome (NTUAS) Study Group's findings and will include discussion on:
Signs of upper respiratory compromise
The importance of a full upper airway examination and why all components should be evaluated
Components that appear to contribute to NTUAS
How the NTUAS Score was developed and what it means
The nature of progression of NTUAS over time
