    Default Breathing issues

    I have a bully female that shows to have breathing issues. Always super phlegmy and junky
    Had xrays done early she showed a 2mm trachea at 8 weeks old
    Thought she had pneumonia treated but here we are 4 months later with this junky phlegmy Bulldog
    Any thoughts on allergies or possible soft pallet issues
    We canít figure out what the problem is
    I had her on fluid pills and also prednisone neither did anything spectacular the fluid pill helped alittle more than anything really

    I had this same issue with Brisket. He had phlegm, turns out was a slight cold. But a few weeks later, it’s back. Vet believes it is stenotic nares, so will be planning for surgery on the near future.

    So she is 6 months old? It could be nares or palate. What food brand/protein are you feeding? Have your tried to give a Benydrl to see if it helped clear the mucus?

    How are her nares? -external-content-duckduckgo-com-jpg are they open enough? Her palate can't be checked without anesthesia. If she does need surgery, make sure your vet knows Bulldogs!!
