Customer Question
I have a Cairn Terrier...
I have a Cairn Terrier that weighs 13.5 #. All this started at what will be 2 years this September. First she would go into these coughing spams that would last up to around 15- 20 seconds. She would be exhaused. Dr. put her on TEMARIL P Single tab 5mg//2mg this was to be given 1/2 tab daily with food. They were concerned that this could go to Tracia collapse. This did help but I was concerned as time went on about steroids. They put her on an antibiotic and allergy medication and we gradually got her off the Temaril-P. Did blood work and found that she needed Thyro tabs for low Thyroid and that medication has brought her levels to a good range. We are on maintenance and monitoring
This is where we got rid of the coughing and the snot started. About 4 months ago. Its worse when she sleeps and gets up, especially in the mornings. What about food allergies? I am at a loss, can you help?

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Maggie has been having these issues. Did your vet do any chest x-rays? What color is her nasal discharge?
