    • Hi Sidni. Thank you for your message. Collapsing trachea is a relatively common health problem. The good thing is a majority of patients respond well to medical management, especially when treatment is begun early. If you’re family veterinarian isn’t comfortable diagnosing and/or managing this condition, you may find it helpful to partner with a board-certified veterinary internal medicine specialist. I know you said you’re from a small town, and you may not be able to travel to see a specialist. If that’s the case, your family veterinarian should be able to speak with one – I guarantee they know a board-certified veterinary internal medicine specialist who will be more than happy to speak with them about your dogs and help them (and you). I’ve written a post of tracheal collapse in dogs – use this link to read more: https://criticalcaredvm.com/tracheal-collapse-dogs/ I wish you the best of luck!
