Many thanks for coming back to me, no he has not had a lung worm test, yes he is weaker on his back legs and they do sometimes slip from him. he is breathing louder even when resting.
In January 2014 he did have a disc removed from his neck as it was damaged.
Could you tell me what the treatment is for laryngeal paralysis.
Could he continue on steroids and sedatives to try before an operation, and do you have any idea of costs.
Could you possibly explain why you would not recommend this surgery and what are the dangers beside pnemonia, as we have been told this may be our only option.
Thanks for your last reply, I don't feel our dog is to bad only when walking etc., could it be an option to try steroids and sedatives and how long could he stay on them.
Many thanks for coming back to me. We have been quoted for the throat operation which would cost approx £6000, I am speaking to our vet today to discuss Badger going on steroids and sedatives. We don't feel we want to operate on Badger because of the risks and his age. Also his throat is not his only problem he also has a slightly bulging disc further down his back.
