Small windpipe

Postby daeion » Fri Dec 08, 2017 3:21 pm

So I took the pup into the Vet on Wednesday as I suspected she had kennel cough and they did xrays. The xrays came back clear but they said the radiologist felt her windpipe seemed smaller than normal, but didn't feel it was tracheal collapse. Is this something I should be worried about? Is it going to affect her in anyway? I notified the breeder and he just said he didn't know what to say and if I was concerned I should get a 2nd opinion but that it was pointless to as there was nothing to do and she would lead a regular life. Seemed like he was blowing me off but this is my first dog so maybe I'm more concerned then I should be?

I would just stand back and observe for a while. How old is the pup?

A good breeder should have a one year health guarantee covering physiological defects.

She’s 14 months old. She runs fine, has lots of energy, but seems to hit the point of having her tongue hang out sooner than the other Munsters I’ve hunted her with.
