Respiratory difficulties can occur for many reasons: bronchitis, allergies, infections or smoke, among others.Your dog may suffer respiratory problems either in the first part of their respiratory system (upper airways) or in the end part (lower airways).Below we will detail the most common respiratory diseases:
Among the most frequent causes you will find:
Inflammation of the trachea
Ce trouble survient normalement chez les chiens qui ont aboyé pendant longtemps.Le seul symptôme est souvent une toux résonnante, intense et assimilable à une « aphonie ».
It is known as “kennel cough”.It is caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites.Your companion will have a persistent, dry and intense cough.Sometimes there will also be nasal mucus and pus.It is very easily transmitted between dogs, but it is also easily curable.
Respiratory distress syndrome
it is a narrowing of a particular part of the trachea.It usually appears in dogs of an advanced age that have had a chronic cough.The cough sounds like the squawk of a goose.It is quite frequent in small-breed animals like Chihuahuas, Toy Poodles or Yorkshire Terriers.
They can cause obstructions that impede air flow.
