I have been so happy the last couple of days, he has had almost no distress breathing unless he's moving around or really excited - he's sleeping so well, not restless and moving as much as he was. Not sure what is around the corner, but I sure am enjoying this while it lasts!

Just curious, did you ever try those 'respiratory herbs' from only natural pets?

He was definitely enjoying his outing!!

Michael, I did get the herbs, and was going to try them on me first, and something got in the way. I was just looking at them last night. I was actually trying to figure out how to give them, since the dose is about 30 drops, too many to drip on a treat, which I do for the tick disease herbs.

Still trying to figure out the breathing thing, so they are still on the list of possibles. Have you ever used them?

I haven't. I was just curious if that is what helped ease the breathing, but it seems something else is working in his favor. Either way, I'm glad you have found a good course of action. Stick with it!

Great update Max, you keep up the good work for your mum smile

Since this would probably be considered to fattening prolly not the best idea as is, but might trigger some other possibilities with less calories ...

What about putting your 30 drops (yikes!) on a piece of soft bread, spread a little peanut butter on it then fold and make little balls - and put in a Kong? Could do the same with canned dog food, mashed veggies (freeze the kong) etc etc etc. Mine love cottage cheese and don't seem to have any trouble with it, 30 drops might make cc a little soupy but he might not care about that. In yogurt and freeze?

I don't know what he's on for a diet, but dribble on his kibble if he's on dry food is another idea.

He looks good! No one would probably guess he's been as sick as he has been to look at him. Yay!

And I love watching him dig holes! He looks so enthusiastic.
