Lungs, Airways & Chest

Results 1-21 of 21 in Lungs, Airways & Chest
1. Aspiration Pneumonia in Dogs
Aspiration pneumonia is an inflammatory lung disorder that occurs as the result of inhaling any foreign substance. Disorders that result in regurgitation or vomiting are most often associated with aspiration pneumonia.
2. Bacterial Bronchopneumonia in Dogs
Bronchopneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs and the bronchi, which are the larger air passages conveying air to and within the lungs. Bronchopneumonia is usually related to a bacterial infection.
3. Brachycephalic Syndrome in Dogs
Brachycephalic syndrome is a constellation of problems most often seen in bulldogs, pugs and other breeds with pushed in faces. Narrow nasal openings, elongated soft palate and other problems cause noisy, and sometimes difficult, breathing.
4. Chronic Bronchitis in Dogs
Chronic bronchitis is a persistent inflammation of one or more bronchi, which are tubes that pass air to the lungs from the trachea. The cause of chronic bronchitis in most cases is unknown.
5. Chylothorax in Dogs
Chylothorax is a condition in which lymph fluid drained from the intestines that contains a high quantity of fat (called chyle) accumulates in the chest cavity and causes difficulty breathing.
6. Diaphragmatic Hernia in Dogs
The diaphragm is the muscle that separates the abdominal organs from the heart and lungs, and a defect in the diaphragm allows abdominal organs such as the liver, stomach and intestines to enter the chest cavity.
7. Foreign Body in Dogs ( Respiratory)
A respiratory foreign body is the inhalation of material that becomes lodged in any part of the respiratory tract, especially the nose, throat, trachea and bronchi, which are the large passages in the lung.
8. Laryngeal Collapse in Dogs
Laryngeal collapse is a type of airway obstruction in which there is loss in the rigidity and support provided by the cartilage in the larynx causing it to fold and collapse, thereby preventing normal movement of air.
9. Laryngeal Paresis and Paralysis
In laryngeal paresis/paralysis the larynx fails to open properly during inhaling, and this leads to airway obstruction. Located at the entrance to the windpipe and covered by a movable flap called the epiglottis, it acts to control airflow.
10. Lungworms in Dogs
Outdoor pets in certain geographic areas of North America and elsewhere are predisposed to respiratory parasites or lungworms. Infection typically occurs from exposure to the hosts that carry the parasite.
