Collapsed Trachea describes a progressive, chronic, debilitating disease that occurs primarily in middle-aged, toy breed dogs.

The clinical signs of tracheal collapse are chronic coughing and intolerance for exercise. The cough often makes a honking sound.


Treatments include weight loss, cough suppressants, bronchial dilators, and sedation as needed to control anxiety and excitement.

Surgery may also be needed depending on the severity of the condition.

Cost to Treat: $2,000 to $5,000
