Bella on the Mississipi - recovers from persistent cough!

As promised, here is Bella's story...
Bella is a rescue Rhodesian Ridgeback who will be 8 years old next month.
It was in January 2012 that I first reached out to the internet to find help for Bella.  Her doctor had already tried for about 6 months to diagnose and treat her persistent cough.
She would mainly cough after lying down for a long time:  every morning, often in the middle of the night, and sometimes during the day.  It was a wet persistent cough, that rattled in her chest and ended with gagging as if trying to spit out the cause.
The vet put her on a course of prednisone, which worked, but only for the time she was on them.  He took radio-graphs expecting to find an enlarged heart, inconclusive.  Another course of pred.  Sent the radio-graphs to the LSU Vet School, no abnormalities,  Another course of pred.  Tried lasix.....she wet the bed but continued to cough.
So I talked to Mark and he gave us hope.  After the first bottle, I could only say it hadn't gotten worse, like it usually did once all the steroids were out of her system.  Another bottle and the cough was almost completely gone.  Now, she coughs rarely (maybe twice in the past 5 months) and that was when I tried to back her off the tonic.
Thanks Pawhealer, for giving me back my strong and vibrant Bella.
