This is Angus.He is one of my 11 year twin Maltese brothers. He was diagnosed with a collapsed trachea about 3 years ago. There was no medication prescribed. As time went on the cough has gotten worse to include throwing up with thick mucous.Angus has now been on the formula for collapse trachea for about 2 1/2 months and I can hardly believe the improvement. It took a good week(giving 3 times a day) to get it under control.I mean, I don't recall the last coughing "fit" he has had now :). It would break my heart when he was having that honking cough and throwing up. He would look up at me as if to say, "help me momma, I don't want to keep doing this." Those dark brown eye's looked so sad. I stumbled across Pawhealers while searching for natural help. I am so very glad I did. Thank you Pawhealer!! Patty Jones Wesdington NC
Thanks for Patricia for sharing. I would like to point out...that "collapsed trachea" is the western diagnosis. Traditional Chinese medicine does not recognize this name. The chief compliant for Angus, in the terms of Chinese herbal medicine...is "coughing"....all coughing is a result of phlegm accumulation. Most little dogs that have this type of condition, fall under our Empirical Lung Qi Support: for Phlegm-Heat formula
For coughing of all types....the patterns for all western diseases vary...depending on the type of phlegm, as well as a condition called blood stagnation. Furthermore, sometimes a pet does not follow into any of these patterns, and when this happens we customize formulas to fit the situtation.
I know its confusing, however the complexity of the Chinese herbal remedies, provides a much bigger toolbox for the pet owner. If one does not work, then another many...Always remember, that unfortunately herbs don't work in every instance....but I have to say, that our herbal formulas for dogs that cough for all types of reasons...really does them to manage their coughs.
