Dog asthma, wheezing and coughing.
Tango came to see me as he had terrible wheezes, coughs and asthma attacks as well as chronic sneezing. He was on an asthma puffer from the vets but was still struggling. When he was in my office with me he had a bad wheezing attack and I could see how scared they made him and how distressing they would be to his owners. The scans of his lungs were clear.
Dog skin allergies
Tango also suffered from skin allergies and had a very poor coat and hair missing, and he continually licked at his front legs. Tango also suffered from recurrent ear and eye infections and had a very serious reaction to tick serum a few ago. Tango had been treated with Cortisone for over a year for his skin condition.
Dog asthma treatment
We started Tango on some herbs for his asthma and to help break up the phlegm, Transfer Factor for his immune system, a natural anti-inflammatory, a Probiotic for his gut health and Omega Mix and Cedar Oil for his skin.
A strict raw food diet
His diet was changed to eliminate cooked food and chicken and he is now eating a raw food diet which he loves.
Tango has responded very well to his treatment. We have tried to stop the Transfer Factor and Anti-inflammatory a couple of times but he relapses so we need to keep him on these for a while yet to correct the underlying condition. Tango now has a full coat and his skin condition has resolved. He gets occasional ear and eye infections but these are cleared with natural therapies. His owners report that he is a very different and happy dog now with more energy, soft skin and a beautiful thick coat.
