Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?
1) Has anyone given you a diagnosis on what is causing the coughing? 2) What medications have been tried? Be as descriptive as possible. 3) When did the coughing begin?
I should have been more specific, Gail. I'm looking for the name of the cough pills, the chinese pills, etc. Knowing what has already been used will let me know what to recommend.It sounds like your vet may have discussed brachycephalic airway disease with you. Not sure if they did mention this, but there is a surgery that can help greatly if this is the cause. Medication won't fix tissue being located in a place that is causing a temporary obstruction.
