Customer Question
I'm pretty sure my...

I'm pretty sure my 11 year old Golden/Sheppard has tracheal collapse issue. He's had fits of coughing, honking, gagging and reverse cough progressively since he was four and he got attacked by a neighbor's dog while on a walk. I tried to pull him back from the altercation and he was wearing a choke collar. I felt awful and went to a harness from that day but the damage was done. He's still a sweetheart and seems to enjoy himself but more and more he's repeating the struggling series of coughing behaviors. Not sure what if anything that I can do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Coughing can be worrying. The Expert will know what you should do. What is the dog's name and age?

Danny and he's 11.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Danny?

He has some discharge from his eyes as a result of these bouts.
