Free BOAS consultation - June 2024

We're offering a free consultation for brachycephalic pets showing signs of BOAS between 3rd – 14th  June 2024.

As summer fast approaches, the warmer weather can cause potential health problems for brachycephalic breeds.

‘Brachycephalic’ is the scientific term given by vets to any dog or cat with a short or flat face.
