Upper airway Syndrome is an inherited disease caused by a mutation in the ADAMTS3 gene and characterised by airway oedema which leads to fluid retention in the tissue that lines the airways and makes it more likely that dogs with the mutation will develop breathing obstructions.
Dogs homozygous for the mutation (UAS/ UAS ) are at significantly higher risk of developing the disease than dogs which are heterozygous (N / UAS)
