BOAS TESTING CHAMBER

For the first time, brachycephalic breeds can now be tested for brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome [BOAS] using the WBBP chamber developed by Cambridge University. 

FBCNSW launched a Go Fund Me campaign to help raise funds to bring this ground-breaking scientifically based non-invasive Whole-Body Barometric Plethysmogrophy [WBBP] chamber to Australia.  ANKC has commenced discussions with the Dean of the University of Sydney for the placement of the chamber once it arrives into Sydney.   Thank you to everyone who helped us raise $25,000 which will now be handed over to the ANKC.  

Do keep visiting our website for updates.
