About our speaker:

Jane Ladlow MA VetMB CertVR CertSAS DipECVS MRCVS has 20 years’ experience as a European Specialist in Small Animal Surgery and over the last 15 years she has focused on upper airway disease in dogs. 

Her BOAS research began in 2005 and in conjunction with colleagues at the University of Cambridge, she devised a non-invasive method of assessing airway function in the Bulldog, French Bulldog and Pug, and also introduced a clinical grading system for BOAS. She has developed good relationships with breeders and worked with the breed clubs to introduce health schemes in these three breeds, that include BOAS. Her research has also led to the validation of new surgical techniques such as laser turbinectomy and laryngeal surgeries. The project led to the development of The Kennel Club/University of Cambridge Respiratory Function Grading (RFG) Scheme, launched in 2019, to facilitate the breeding of healthy dogs in Bulldogs, French Bulldogs and Pugs. Jane is continuing this work by promoting the RFG scheme and now intends to start looking at some of the other brachycephalic breeds in addition to her routine clinical work.
