    I got it from the vet. It is an antibiotic but helps with inflammation.

    I guess my Homer has this, he is 14 years 5 months old and has been having trouble breathing and a hack or cough every now and then. He seems to still be a happy dog and eats well, so I'm not ready to have him put down. Am I being selfish?

    No. When he's struggling - and I'm mean struggling - to breath all the time, sure, but if he's happy, what the heck. You have to watch for a sudden closure. I am definitely not a vet but I'm sure that is an emergency. But if he's happy and getting around? I wouldn't (and haven't)

    Well I'm not sure if related, but Homer stopped hacking(coughing) as much but all the sudden he can't seen to walk. Is this the same thing?

    No, that does not sound like LP. The lameness in the hind legs is slow and gradual.

    agree with Becky. That doesn't sound like what Carson is going though. But dogs are individuals. I'd think not, but I'm far from expert

    I made the very difficult decision yesterday to put Simon down. It broke my heart to watch him have a difficult time walking. The sad part is that his mind was still young and he wanted to retrieve but his body wouldnt cooperate. I hope that this genetic issue, LP, can be eliminated some day. Grief is not a sign of weakness…it is the price of love.

    Becky, so sorry to here about Simon. How long did it take for the LP to really kick in so he could not walk. My girl was just diagnosed so hope I have a lot more time. BUT as you said the hind legs is slow and gradual but so hard to watch. Thankfully she can still get around for now and no steps to go up. That has be the hardest for her.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. I know it comes, but it isn't an easy decision.
