    DefaultLisa's post on Collapsing Trachea

    Lisa posted this on FB. I thought I'd share it here, in case you haven't seen it.

    Post from Lisa Smith Weber - There is a newer and still relatively unknown treatment that CURES collapsing trachea and it is very reasonable in cost and has an excellent safety profile. The drug is Stanozolol. It is an anabolic steroid. The average pug gets 2mg twice a day for 2 months, then is tapered off. It saved my Matilda's life. The drug is a controlled substance, because body builders misuse it, but is available through Diamondback Drugs in Arizona and they ship everywhere. Your vet can also go on the vet only forums and ask about it as more and more vets are beginning to use it.

    Print this off and give it to your vet: http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/pdf/...63201102400113

    Thank you for sharing this. I've tried to remember the drug name more than once. Maybe we should make it a sticky?

    Silly question but how does a vet determine whether the trachea is collapsing. Do they need to go in with a scope to look or can you tell from an xray?

    A friend of mine actually had her pug's collapsing trachea caught on an x-ray. (The x-ray below is from the internet.)
