My 6 yr old standard wire-haired dachshund has been

Hi there,My 6 yr old standard wire-haired dachshund has been investigated for persistent sneezing with mucus from his nose. The resultant diagnosis is non-allergic chronic rhinitis.As a complication from investigations at a specialist practice 10 days ago (CT scan, rhinoscopy, nasal biopsy), he got pneumonia and was hopsitalised locally (incl oxygen) for a few days.He is currently taking Synulox and Metacam and doing much better, he is bright and the mucus is changing from a yellow/green sticky substance to the normal egg white consistency with streaks of green which is how he was before the investigations. So now we return to look at treating the rhinitis.The specialist centre want to change his antibiotics to either doxycycline or azithromycin for a 2-3 month basis, whilst continuing with the metacam, but I have concerns.Firstly with the doxycycline, I have read numerous alarming reports about dogs dying or requiring euthanasia from even 1-2 doses, plus liver damage and burnt/scarred oesophagus and stomach ulcers'.With azithromycin I read that 'The most common potential side effects associated with azithromycin include gastrointestinal problems like abdominal discomfort, vomiting and diarrhea. Angioedema and jaundice can also result from taking azithromycin, although the chances are rare'.Neither of these options seem worth the risk for a snotty nose?At this point I have to mention that last month he ate a ball and had his stomach opened up to remove the pieces. He became allergic to the stiches and had swelling. His scar has healed quite tightly across the bottom of his ribcage and he sometimes has trouble stretching out. I am concerned his stomach is still healing, or at least that it may be sensitive.Are there any other less anti-biotics that I could consider which are less harsh on his body? He has had so many sedations, anaesthesia's, x-rays, scans, ultrasounds and procedures over the last two months I want to do my best to protect him.If you need any other info please let me know.Kind regards,Louise

Our 2-year old wire hair fox terrior keeps biting the hair

Our 2-year old wire hair fox terrior keeps biting the hair off her rear areas and tail. We have beeb to our vet twice and the vet prescribed temiril at the first visit. It did not stop the biting. Then the vet prescribed apoquel and that has not stopped the biting. We have applied an over0the-counter hot spot spray with allercaine and this has not helped. We have bathed her twice in a prescription shampoo but the soothing has been short-lived. We changed her dog food to Proplan "grain-free" chicken and egg, and that has not changed her behavior.Is there some other thing(s) we can try. Our vet bill is in the hundreds.

Miniature beagle 10 years old has been taking 2.5 mg

Miniature beagle 10 years old has been taking 2.5 mg prednisone daily for respiratory illness for a month now. She still has wheezing, snores all night and pants heavily with minimal exercise (going up or down the stairs). I have seen her sneeze occasionally when outside. Just within the past week I have noticed that her stomach appears bloated and feels hard after eating. The bloating does resolve some but not completely within 4or 5 hours after she eats. Have not noticed any gas. She is 20 pounds, has not gained weight with the prednisone, is drinking and eating normally and moving her bowels and urinating. The BMs appears smaller and dry. She does not strain and no loose stool or diarrhea has accompanied the stool. I have an appointment with her vet tomorrow afternoon but wondered what I can do for her until then? What should I feed her tonight? Thank you
