I have a 13 year old Miniature poodle (not the one in the photo, that's our new baby).
A few weeks ago he started doing this wierd mild choking thing then it seemed to get worse and now he stands with his head pushed forward sucking in rapidly though his nose (snorting).
Vet did tests and an Op to have a look around. No diabetes, heart is fine, no blockage anywhere in throat or sinus.
His lungs did look cloudy but neither vets at the practice could decide what it was and agreed on pneumonia in the end plus he had a raging ear infection both ears.
He is now on medication, steriods and anitbiotics and ear drops. And has been taking them all since his Op last Thursday.
I don't see much difference, a tad happier but still pushing his head foreward, standing funny and trying to suck air through his nose.
Vet bills are killing me... has anyone seen this before please?
