Just like humans, your dog can have breathing problems too, such as dog bronchitis, also known as canine asthma and more, which impact their lives. And like humans, the correct medication and treatment plan can help them make the most of their lives as part of your family. The first step in this journey is to properly identify your dog’s symptoms and investigate what may be triggering your dog’s cough.
Living with asthma or bronchitis shouldn’t mean a lifetime of side effects
Canine bronchitis often impacts dogs in their prime. This can lead to a lifetime of treatments that affect their quality of life. While there is no “cure” for asthma or chronic bronchitis in dogs, you can treat and manage your dog’s symptoms to make sure they live the best life possible. Through a combination of veterinarian-prescribed medications, diet and environmental modification, your dog can be healthy.
Inhaled medications are an important part of managing canine bronchitis and have fewer side effects than oral medications.
Side effects of chronic oral steroid use may include:
Increased thirst and loss of bladder control
Lethargy and no energy to play
Immune suppression and increased risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and bacterial and fungal infections
Behavioural changes, including aggression
Vomiting and diarrhea
Ulceration of the digestive tract
