Tracheal Collapse

March 26th, 2020

Up to 71% of dogs with tracheobronchial collapse can be successfully managed with medications for more than 12 months* . Where medical management is no longer sufficient, tracheal stenting should be considered and is a viable option for relieving life threatening airway obstruction and can significantly improve quality of life. Tracheal stenting offers a high survival rate, even in those patients with severe clinical signs. The internal medicine service offers assessment of cases for tracheal stenting and this procedure can be performed on-site.
