Yara is checked on several conditions that are common in French Bulldogs. One of the most severe and frequent problems is BOAS, a problem with breathing or the esophagus. To check this the dog must be at minimum of 15 months old. Usually the problems do not occur in very young puppies. Under anesthesia the throat area is examined. The soft palate is inspected and with the help of x-rays we can see the trachea size, but also the spine, neck, elbows and hips. You can click on the arrows to see the document.
