    Oh they are adorable and so healthy looking.... Poor Dubbie, second med for congestion not working and to make it worse, she is pooping everywhere.. Yuch! We are not used to that she is so great about never going anywhere but outside. Waiting for vet to call me back. I'm very worried about her :-(

    It's "stump the vet" time again..... He is out looking for something else. he has run out of options We have tried everything, Homeopathic, reg meds. She already has had the surgery and it nearly killed her, so we are afraid to venture further down that road again. Dr. Koch is a great vet. He is actually recommended on this site.

    Her vet Dr. Koch is a "specialist" when it comes to bullies and he is great. He works a lot with many medical schools and is well known in the area ( he is even recommended on this site) She is just an extremely tough case. He is doing some more research to see if he can come up with something else. He said she has the smallest trachea he has ever seen in a bully in his 30 years of practice. As I said, a tough case. She is doing good today. Still in bed LOL

    so far her vet has not come up with anything new, but I think she is better off without all the meds and the terrible side effects with no help to her breathing.
    She is so much happier with everything finally out of her system. We just have to keep a close eye on her. She is an extreme case because of her extra small trachea and thick soft palate. We are all afraid ( vet included) to have her undergo another soft palate surgery as we nearly lost her after the last one.
    I truly believe "quality of life over quantity" and right now she is doing better without all the meds> If Dr. Koch comes up with something different, we will try it. We are taking a day off and going boating and she loves the boat and the water so happy day, happy dog :-)
