My small mixed breed pug/pomeranian has been diagnosed as having a collapsing trachea. Can you tell me more about this problem. He just began coughing cronically and we are very concerned.
This is when the cartilage in the trachea collapses esp. during exercise or exciement. There is no cure for this. I usually treat it with anti-cough medication such as tussigon. It is common in small breed dogs and if your pet is overweight, weight reduction will help. Avoid excitment and exercise as well. vetcare
