Dusty's Story of Laryngeal Paralysis
Dusty, an 11 year old Lab, had laryngeal paralysis. This common condition leads to suffocation. Surgery involves performing a “tie back” procedure to open up the airway. His owner EN writes:
“Dear Dr. Zeltzman, Words cannot describe how grateful my wife and I are for saving Dusty’s life. (…) Although we were hesitant to have the surgery, you told us that age is not a disease and Dusty is otherwise healthy.
Two weeks after surgery, Dusty is happier than ever! Has loads of energy and breathes normally now! (…). Respectfully yours.”
