My 7 yr old Maltese makes a "goose honk" noise when he breathes. He just started taking medication three days ago and it doesn't seem to be getting better. How do you know when he should get surgery for his trachea and how much does it cost??
Yes we are using a harness. I have gone to the ACC&IM and had a consultation. Peanut will have to have a surgery to fix his collapsed trachea. The medication (he is on new medication) helps a little, but not much...
Has anyone had a surgery for their dogs for Collapsed Trachea? It's called a Trachea stenting.
Daisy is my maltese and bichon frise mix pup and shes 10 months old and honks also- it happens at least 1 time a day and its almost like she cant hold her self up and her back legs go under her- its very scary. I hold her and rub her till it passes. I have brought this up to my vet and he exsplains that small dogs have collaps trechas and i guess felt that was enough info and nothing has every been done about it- what can happen tho if left untreated?
