Respiratory MedicineTracheal collapse is most common in small dogs; the medical treatment approach includes use of cough suppressants, anti-inflammatories, and antibiotics.
With respiratory disease being one of the most common reasons for antibiotic prescriptions, care should be taken to evaluate need based on clinical presentation.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the therapeutic administration of oxygen administered at a pressure that exceeds that at sea level.
When dogs are coughing, wheezing or have shortness of breath, the symptoms may be a sign of pulmonary hypertension, or high blood pressure in the lungs.
Respiratory MedicineAfter cardiac causes of cough are ruled out, the differential list of respiratory causes can be narrowed down by using signalment, history, physical examination, CBC, and survey cervicothoracic radiographs.
Emergency Medicine/Critical CareManaging environmental lung injuries in dogs and cats differs from the care given for other types of respiratory compromise. Here’s what you need to know to provide appropriate supportive care.
Supplementing oxygen reliably and safely is a vital and potentially life-saving intervention in small animal medicine.
