So.... a week ago, mom was actually worried that I wasn't going to make it through the night I was having so much difficulty breathing.
She was convinced that I had aspiration pneumonia. She brought me to the vet for some chest x-rays and a white cell test and good news! no pneumonia!
The vet checked me out all over and I came away with a pretty good bill of health. They did find that I have severe irritation in my larynx (no big surprise there) along with an infection. They gave me some drugs to supress my coughing and some others to clear up my infection.
It's been 48 hours and virtually not a cough has come out of me! Mom and dad haven't cleaned up any mucus pukeys either... (also knows as jellyfish).
I'm eating like a horse, playing with my sisters... mom doesn't know what to do with all my energy all of a sudden. After almost a year she feels like she has my MegaE under manageable coltrol and now thinking I may be able to be cough free. My cough has been pretty much chronic 24/7!
There's a saying among MegaE dog owners... "what worked today probably won't work tomorrow" But so far, so good.
Mom keeps asking me who the new dog is that moved in and looks a bit like Taysia Blue.
Please keep your paws crossed that I remain healthy and can ramp down from my drugs and still be cough free!
