What is Nasal Fold Dermatitis?

Nasal fold dermatitis is a condition that occurs when folds of skin around your pet’s nose become infected or inflamed. This condition can cause discomfort, pain, and discharge from the affected area. Breeds with short snouts, such as Bulldogs, Pugs, and Boxers, are particularly prone to this condition.

What is Nasal Fold Resection?

Nasal fold resection is a surgical procedure that involves removing the folds of skin around your pet’s nose to eliminate the source of infection or inflammation. This procedure may be recommended if other treatments, such as antibiotics or topical ointments, have been ineffective.

What is the Nasal Fold Resection Process Like?

The nasal fold resection process begins with a comprehensive examination to determine the extent of the condition and ensure that your pet is healthy enough for surgery. If surgery is recommended, our experienced veterinarians will perform the procedure using advanced techniques and equipment to minimize pain, reduce the risk of complications, and ensure a speedy recovery.

After the procedure, we will provide you with detailed instructions for post-operative care, including pain management and monitoring for any signs of complications. In most cases, pets can return to their normal activities within a few days to a week after surgery.
