OBJECTIVE To determine the degree of fluctuation in tracheal dimensions between forced inspiration and passive expiration in healthy dogs of various sizes. ANIMALS 10 client-owned dogs with no evidence of respiratory disease or tracheal collapse. PROCEDURES Anesthetized dogs underwent a computed tomographic examination during forced inspiration and induced but passive expiration to assess tracheal dimensions. Tracheal height, width, and cross-sectional area were measured at inspiration and… CONTINUE READING
