DIVM Miami

In this dvm360® interview, Dr Mariana Pardo shares insight on when faced with this type of potentially critical patient

In a dvm360® interview at the Directions in Veterinary Medicine (DIVM) symposium in Miami, Florida, Mariana Pardo, BSCv, MV, DACVECC, outlined important considerations and first steps to take when triaging the brachycephalic breed.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Mariana Pardo, BSCv, MV, DACVECC: We should never underestimate the capabilities of brachycephalic breeds of becoming critical very quickly. So, we want to prevent that as much as we can by trying to minimize stress, trying to make these appointments as short as possible, and trying to jump very quickly to sedation techniques, providing oxygen as soon as we can.
