My little girl tessa, 16 year old aust silky terrier x was diagnosed with collapsed trachea about 3 years ago and has been on nuelin tablets since. Lately she has been coughing more regularly and off her food. Well she will eat our food just not dog food.
If she is active for a while or has a drink she begins coughing honking and ends up dryreaching but does not do those backward sneezes things that she did before the nuelin.
Funds have been tight with new baby on the way and our house half way through renovations so havnt made it to the vet as yet but will if she doesn't improve. I gave her a course of antibiotics that I had for her and looks like she may have had a urinary Tract infection cos she had been peeing several times overnight which has stopped
I'm wondering if there is something that I might have around the house that is worth a try like a ventolin puffer or something to settle her when she is honking away.
I know it's annoying oh but he knows not to say anything cos she's so old and I'll stick up for her.
Apart from the cough she is still pretty healthy for her age. A few skin issues that's about it.
Any help would be great
