This Veterinary Medical Forum will focus on how airways samples can be readily obtained from patients with airway disease or pneumonia by trans-tracheal and endo-tracheal wash, but many clinicians are frustrated by these techniques. Tips on patient selection, technique, sample handling and interpretation of results are discussed with the goal of attendees becoming more comfortable with the procedure.
