Hi I️ have a small...
Hi I️ have a small 9 year old 6lb mini Yorkshire terrier and he has been coughing lately after he exerts himself or gets water which I️ am sure is due to his trachea being so small as my vet says as well. But I️ Just felt in his upper chest two vein like masses on each side which I️ am sure are muscles or tendons/ ligaments or whatever but I’m just worried because I️ do smoke in front of my dog they are long and thin and they feel like tendons or muscles but I’m nervous

Are you able to feel these muscles and tendons or are there tumors that are long and veinlike. I am a hypochondriac when it comes to my dogs and i am sure that they are apart of his body that i just haven’t felt before because there are one on each side but I just wanted to know if this is apart of his anatomy that i hadn’t noticed before. Sorry for long question Just wanted to explain everything and why i have felt so nervous due to his recent coughing/honking, and he went to the vet about two weeks ago and the vet felt around and didn’t find anything. Never brought it up to him I would rather ask you than have to pay 250 for the visit. Thanks!!

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

Please accept my apologies for you long wait. That is not acceptable!

I just came online and will help you.

Does Jackson have exercise intolerance?

What is his resting breathing rate?

Does he cough when not exercising?

Paul
