    If you wanted to persue this, it would mean CT Scans and endoscoping.
    Not very cheap either! We had Ralph done in Sydney at the University Vet Clinic and just that part of his bill for being down there was close to $2,500!
    Depending where you live with depend on the cost.
    There is a possibility of a problem with his trachea!

    On the other hand, has your poodle been tested for heart worm?

    In my opinion, head over to another vets or request to see somebody else at your current one.

    Keep us posted..

    Becka has been on heartworm medication since he was 4months old and has never missed a dosage. Is this a symptom of heartworm? Should l take him to the vets and ask for a check.

    Yes you should. I am not 100% if it is a symptom of heartworm but be sure to take him to the vets. It's better to be safe than sorry!

    Oh... okay then. I wouldn't bother going to the vets unless it gets worse.

    When I get home and have all my dog info books etc I will look it up for you.

    Wouldn't be heart worm then!
    But would go to another vet and get him checked out, maybe nothing, but best to be sure.
