My Visit to Dr. LaHue

Mom has noticed over the last 6 months that I have just not been very tolerant of exercise and heat and sometimes I make these funny choking/coughing noises for no apparent reason. So yesterday she took me to an orthopedic specialist thinking maybe my back was really bothering me as I do have some old age related arthritis in my back. But when she told him all the symptoms, he has decided that I may well have something call Laryngeal Paralysis. That is why I can't exercise like I used to, especially in heat! It doesn't allow me to breathe and pant like a normal dog. The good news is that there is a surgery that could very well cure it and by chance, Dr.LaHue is an expert at this surgery! So, Mom is going to do some more research on this condition and we will keep you posted on what we decide to do. Meanwhile, as long as Mom doesn't exercise me, I am feeling good. She sure is glad that she has health insurance on me!!
