Tracheotomy in dogs

Vets are able to more and more for our dogs, with some breeds dogs have problems breathing and with long soft pallets. Now dogs can also have permanent tracheotomies in. At one time they were only temperary but not now. This operation is getting more and more common.

A dog with a tracheotomy in can never go swimming or have a bath, if they do they drown very quickly. They can never wear a collar again and mine has a disc on her harness stating that she has one in and must never be bathed.

I have done a web site for Ellie and her tracheotomy, how it happened and how we both coped. This is still quite rare but is getting done more and more often. It terrified me but it really isn’t difficult to deal with.
