Jane Ladlow
Veterinary Surgeon

Jane has nearly 20 years’ experience in small animal soft tissue surgery and is an RCVS and European Specialist. Jane has also taught numerous veterinary students and general veterinary practitioners. Over the last 10 years, in addition to clinical work, Jane has focused on upper airway disease in dogs, particularly brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS). Whilst at the University of Cambridge, with Dr Nai-Chieh Liu, Jane devised a non-invasive method of assessing airway function and also introduced a clinical grading system for BOAS which is now available as The Kennel Club/University of Cambridge Respiratory Function Grading (RFG) Scheme that was launched in 2019 to facilitate the healthy breeding of Bulldogs, French Bulldogs and Pugs. The study also led to the validation of some new surgical techniques (laser turbinectomy, laryngeal surgeries) for upper airway disease. Jane will be continuing the research in 2021 by looking at some of the other brachycephalic breeds in addition to continuing clinical work.
