Everted Laryngeal Saccules

Everted Laryngeal Saccules - The normal larynx has two small pockets called ventricles or saccules. When a dog has increased effort in breathing, over time inside the throat these little pockets will actually turn inside out. When this occurs, the protuberances need to be surgically snipped. In fact, this finding indicates that surgery for the stenotic nares and elongated soft palate is also warranted lest it progress to a full laryngeal collapse.
