Hello, I'm looking for a second opinion regarding my dogs x-rays. He is a 10 yr. old male, 60 lb German shorthaired pointer
, who has had a healthy. He began developing a cough which would occur once or twice a day, (mostly upon exercise) he'd gag and spit
out a small amount of foamy saliva, then he'd be better. I also noticed him panting more when excited or after running, however, that would end with a cough or he'd just relax and the panting would subside. Sometimes when laying on his side I would notice
the rear of his ribs expand and retracting the skin between them, then drop harshly when exhaling, that would go on until he fell asleep, then he'd breath normally. I took him to the vet and explained this, he could hear noises in his lungs so he x-rayed his
chest. He was prescribed 10 mg of prednisone twice daily for 4 days, then once daily for 3 days, then every other day until gone (20 pills). Also on 150 mg of antibiotics, 14 days. He had a great night last night (started prednisone yesterday at 5:30) and
having a great day today, breathing much better and almost no cough and no wheeze or stridor. I would appreciate your professional opinion of his x-rays and what you think he may have. thank you!
