Medical: Coughy 13 yr old
I'm waiting to talk with my vet before taking her in but it will probably be so- in the meantime.
Thoughts on a 13 yo BLF?? She has a throaty cough. Shes had it for some time, in fact vett'd her a couple years ago when it first presented but nothing was found or Dx. So recently past month or two , cough's a lot when she first gets up , raspy gaggy cough, sometimes pheghm comes up sometimes no.
Lately its more often . I wonder about larangyl paralysis ,but thing is she doesnt tire out or have trouble breathing . Does the run/evening walk fine , doesnt tire easily or even hack during the walk. Does LP sometimes present with the cough but w/o the difficulty breathing?
Whats involved with diagnostics for it? My vet listened to her heart and lungs last week when he was here for puppies, and did not detect any abnormalities there. X'ing fingers thats positive- I'm waiting for a call back from him to discuss before taking her in for a more thorough exam.
Thanks for any knowledge on this one-
