Brachycephalic Skull in Dogs

Pug dog pictured with a Brachycephalic skull



Brachycephalic Skull is a condition where your dog's skull is relatively broad and short (typically with the breadth at least 80% of the length). Some dog breeds such as the Pug are sometimes classified as "extreme brachycephalic."


There is no need for treatment, however Brachycephalic dogs are very sensitive to high temperatures, making the choice of a sleep or travel crate surface especially important.
