Learn more about bronchiectasis below.
Bronchiectasis leads to the dilation of the lungs and mucus filling in the organs. Changes associated with this disease can cause a chronic cough and a predisposition to pneumonia. Bronchiectasis can be spotted in radiographs (x-rays) with accompanying bronchoscopies allowing for a visualization of the airway. This is the only way to diagnose the disease and helps veterinarians differentiate between bronchitis, bronchiectasis, or bronchomalacia.
