Doctors Report

Well I was right, Paris' breathing was a bit worse. The vet prescribed theophylline (Theophylline is used to prevent and treat wheezing, shortness of breath, and difficulty breathing caused by asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and other lung diseases. It relaxes and opens air passages in the lungs, making it easier to breathe.) A bronchiodialator. I am giving him a small dose two times a day. This med and the regular hycodan dosages should help with the coughing and wheezing he heard. Luckily it isn't too expensive because it can be taken the rest of his life if it helps. I am trying it twice a day for two weeks and then I can go to once a day and see if that is good.
Paris also has a small cyst on his head but the doctor said that isn't a big deal, and for an old blind, collapsing trachea dog, he is doing great! Yippee!
