I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you tell me, please, when X-rays of Paco's chest were last taken? Collapsing trachea, heart failure, and chronic sterile bronchitis are important considerations in a Chihuahua of his age.

I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish.
