    DefaultCambridge BOAS Research Group

    I came across a Facebook page for the Cambridge BOAS Research Group this morning that had some informative posts for owners of brachycephalic breeds. The Cambridge group are generally believed to be one of the, if not the leading research teams in the U.K. at the present time

    I wasn’t sure that copying the URL from my own Facebook account would work, but it’s easy enough to find by typing “Cambridge BOAS Research Group” into the search box on your own Facebook account.

    These guys are brilliant. I'm in contact with their BOAS research team about possibly having Charlie (and maybe Will) BOAS assessed :)

    It sounds fascinating from what I know about the particular project. They have the dog (brachycephalic of course) in a very plain & boring air chamber which is kept at a constant pressure and then measure the changes as the dog breathes in and out. Which essentially tells them how much air is being shifted and how effective the dogs breathing is. Lots of things to think about like the fact that the whole thing relies on the dog just relaxing....Will would be fine, he'd just have a nap for them but Charlie would .....not have a nap! Lol.

    Yes I’ve only heard very good things about them. Their test tank appears to give much better insight into the diagnosis - I read an article by them before where they said that a fair number of dogs being veterinary referred to them for BOAS surgery actually had other problems
