Operations on the ear/auditory canal

  • Anterior or lateral bulla osteotomy to remove foci of chronic inflammation and/or polyps from the middle ear of dogs and cat

Operation for brachycephaly syndrome

Brachycephaly syndrome is one of the congenital diseases of short-nosed breeds (pugs, French bulldogs, Pekineses, Persian cats etc.), which are characterised by excessively narrow nostrils and changes in the nasal cartilages, soft palate and larynx. The resulting breathing obstruction can be improved by surgical procedures.

  • Surgical correction of a soft palate that is too long and/or too thick
  • Widening of excessively narrow nostrils
  • Laser-assisted removal of displaced and obstructive nasal cartilages (laser-assisted turbinectomy = LATE)
