Nimby has started her cough again Vote for this post

My Dear Little Nimby has started her cough again today...although over the last 6 weeks since she has been off the steroids she has only had an odd cough maybe once on some days...I was hoping that it was just a one off and she maybe was just clearing her throat...but perhaps after today not the case and it is Bronchitis she has after all.We went out all day yesterday and to get some sea air a little for a change but have done jobs and stayed at home today ,she has had a wee walk tonight but apart from that been in the garden all day ...she started more this morning really coughing after she has had a barky zoomy session  in the garden....I reckon its been about 12 times today and just tonight in the house a bout of maybe 6 coughs....The vet said if she starts again to give her one tablet. and ring him...I will have to see what the morning brings and take it from there,I do have some tablets here for her ...I just want to see if she calms a little when we go to bed....I really hoped she would not have to go back on the steroids but if it keeps her cough at bay then I must start again and do the best for her...will update tomorrow before work ...any thoughts would be a great help to me,needless to say  back to the worrying for her again....Big Hugs Annie and Gang xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Annie, we are praying that this is just a small setback due to a change in the weather or the sea air. Will wait till your update and keep your sweet girl in our prayers. If a small dose of the steroids sets her right again, that would be so wonderful.
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Annie, I know it's so difficult to know whether the cough is from the bronchitis or something like allergies.   As you know, as much as I detest steroids, a low dose (every other day) is the only way we've been able to deal with her bronchitis.  If I try to wean her off of the steroids, then her coughing becomes terrible again.

Hang in there, hopefully she might stop coughing on her own.  It's upsetting, for sure.

Oh poor dear Nimby...Annie so sorry to hear she has that cough returning. I hope it's not bronchitis causing the cough.Maybe the zooming in the garden got the cough going.Willie is having some coughs but for him it's allergies with the weed pollen's that are very high this time of year. I give him a half tab of Benadryl antihistamine and it helps calm his cough and watery eyes.
We send Nimby our kisses and hugs and hope she'll be feeling better very soon.

Hugs xoxxx Mr.Willie

I apologize if I missed the information earlier, I am not on line much these days.

Has her heart been checked? One of the early signs of congestive heart failure is a cough. I hope that is not it.

Annie at the end of the day you do what you have to do. I am not fond of steroids either but Hannah was on a low dose, ultimately I had no choice, Apoquel has only just been released here in Australia they were talking about it well before Hannah and Kelsi passed away, they would have benefited from it.

Fingers crossed she feels a lot better soon.

Bless her little heart, I hope Nimby is feeling better tonight. A small maintance dose, given every other day or so sounds like a good plan if that's what the vet has in mind. Give your girl a big hug from bestest friend Emmie Sue and me and tell her she's in our prayers.
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Good to hear that Nimby's cough is settling down. I'm wondering if there will be certain weather conditions that will set it off or maybe this is just a one and done event?
