Stop Brachycephalism, Now!

Stop Brachycephalism, Now!

In February of 2013 I published a piece under this title in the Canadian Veterinary Journal. What I present here is basically that paper but with visuals added to make it plain what I am talking about.

The photographs of the dry bone skulls were lifted from the website of Skulls Unlimited. If you are a veterinarian in clinical practice, I strongly recommend that you visit this site and purchase some of their specimens. They are really helpful for client education and also for practicing your intra-oral dental radiographic technique. Get a nice, normal dog and cat skull and then at least one brachycephalic skull so you can show people the difference. It can be a real eye-opener for them.

Here is the pdf of my illustrated version of Stop Brachycephalism, Now!
