Should I Consider Airway Assessment if My Dog is Not Noisy?

Relating to “Why should I consider airway surgery?” and “What outcome can I expect from Surgery?”, our answer is “Yes”.

You should consider assessment because 50% of non-noisy dogs still have an excessively long palate that will cause problems in time. Also, it’s possible that you will see an improvement in exercise in your dog as well. You may believe that they were absolutely fine before surgery, but notice they are more energetic afterwards.

It’s relatively simple to understand. If you have tissue extending down your throat, you are going to feel much better if it is removed. BB’s testimonial is an example of this very situation. She was a non-noisy dog that seemingly had no concerns prior.
