    Default Maggie

    I have this beautiful old girl with me at the moment. Her name is Maggie, I am taking her to the vet because she has been having trouble breathing and my step mum who calls herself an animal lover doesn't give a damn about her. She's about 13-14 years old. She seems to have a throat infection, i have taken her to the vet before and they gave her anti biotics. My step mum said she gave them to her like i asked and she said they worked and i dont really know if i believe her, Because i am taking her again. She also has a lump on her neck i'm not sure if that ight have something to do with it. What do you think? Feel free to ask questions if i haven't been clear enough haha.

    Hope the vet visit goes well..it is probably best for the vet to have a good look at the little girl.....Dogs get a little fragile as they get older........Good luck, she is lucky to have someone who cares

    Do you think she could have a bone or something stuck in her throat?

    They said the only way they can check out what is going on is if they put her under and that is risky because she is so old and is having such trouble breathing but i am starting to think there is a bone or something lodged in her throat because i just encountered her sneezing up blood. and she cant couch it up so the only way to get it out would be to sneeze it up yeah? God i feel so bad for he ri wish i could do something... I have nearly a thousand dollers in my savings that i was gonna use for a holiday eventually, my dad can't afford any surgerys i just dont know what to do. she is having trouble sleeping because she can't breath.

    Has she been eating bones or sticks? Then yes. A bone splinter can cause bleeding... and coughing can send it up the dog's nose...

    But inhaling a grass seed can also cause problems up a dog's nose.

    I don't let my dog eat bones. She doesn't chew them up properly and they cause problems at both ends. At 3am.

    A friend's dog recently got a bone wedged on the way down - and that caused a lot of problems and cleaned my friend out to the tune of 6 grand - getting the bone out and helping the dog heal up afterwards.

    If the dog has a throat infection - that may also cause blood to be coughed up.

    There is no way my dad will spend that much on a 14 year old dog. We are gonna see what the vets says tomorrow i will let you all know. I agree with you on the bone thing. Because yes she has been given bones and she has been very neglected in the last 7 months because my dad and step mum seperated.... I just feel so sad about this happening to the dog.
