We have an almost 14 years old female basenji. She suffers from cardiac insufficiency and takes several medicines: Fortekor 5, Prilactone 40 and Dimazon 40.
She started coughing 2-3 years ago. Some months ago the veterinary told us she has a chronic bronchitis. For some months now she has taken Moderin (cortisone) according to the frequency of her cough attacks. If she coughs less, I give medicine 2 times per week, if she coughs more, I give medicine every day.
Unfortunately her cough is getting worse despite the medicine, and I am afraid it is not a good idea to continue giving cortisone for a long time.
Any similar experiences, ideas, advice? Thank you in advance.
