Big brown dog not feeling so well...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
...she needs good vibes from all! She's my adopted GSP mix. She's 80(OK, so maybe closer to 90) lb. hound dog! I love her despite the fact that she is a naughty dog & resists all training(mine & professional). She has always had a little cough since we got her. She has been checked by 2 different vets concerning her cough & neither of them found anything wrong with her. Well, she just had a massive cough attack. We removed her collar(not that is seems to help much). I have been googling dogs & coughing & found that she could have quite a few things. Lungworms(are they in MN??), heartowrms, her trachea could be collapsing, etc. All in all, she isn't doing so hot. Tomorrow, I am going to call our vet & see what he has to say. If I don't like what he says, I am going straight to another vet. No time to screw around.

Keep my girl in your thoughts tomorrow & send lots of good vibes!

Poor doogie. Get well vibes to you. That lung worm thing sounds nasty - hope it isn't anything that serious.

The vet we went to is really stumped. He doesn't think it is lungworms or heartworms. He referred us to another vet in the area. We got a pill to give my baby & we are to see the other vet on Wed. I knew when I adopted my Pooka that she had some genetic issues, but I am not ready to loose her yet. I will post morea as soon as I find out.

I have been searching online for anything that could tip me off to what she has. I found quite a bit of info. on reverse sneezing. I called teh vet we are going to see on Wed. She agrees that it could be reverse sneezing, but fears that it could also have something to do with a collapsed trachea. She usually checks dogs for that when they are 3(that's how old my Pooka is).
