Collapsed Trachea Treatment

"My 12 year old Pomeranian Eddie was diagnosed with a collapsed trachea and he has been on the Ultra-Flex Collagen for about 6 months. I am happy to report that it really does seem to help. It's very hard for me to give him pills so I like that we can mix in his food just once a day." Joanne S., New Jersey

Collapsed trachea is a progressive condition that affects certain small dog breeds such as yorkies, maltese, pomeranian, chihuahas, pugs and shih tzus. Collapsed trachea can cause coughing, gagging and respiratory problems. Allergies, indigestion, acid stomach can all make the symptoms worse so it is important to do everything you can to keep your dog's digestion and inflammation under control. The goal of holistic treatments for tracheal collapse is to:

1) to support the tracheal cartilage
2) reduce coughing attacks and anxiety that can come with them
3) support the heart and overall respiratory system which decline greatly due to the collapsed trachea condition (essential for all collapsed trachea pets!).
4) reduce other factors such as indigestion, food allergies and inflammation that can make the collapsed trachea worse.

Conventional veterinary care is very limited in what it can offer for dogs with collapsed trachea but pets show marked improvement in their symptoms with holistic care. To get the best results, it is important to use the appropriate supplements along with diet changes based on your pet's issues. The supplements most effective in treating collapsing trachea in dogs are:

Amazing Omegas --Purest, therapeutic fish oil available contains omega 3s in their natural state packed in glass bottles (instead of plastic that can leach toxins into the oil). These powerful omegas reduce inflammation, reduce allergy symptoms and strengthen the trachea, joints and ligaments.

Ultra-Flex Collagen For Pets--The hallmark product for tracheal collapse in dogs. This food-based product strengthens trachea cartilage, helping to reduce coughing and gagging.

Purrfect Pet CoQ10 and Heart Terrain--Certain breeds such as Pomeranians are especially prone to heart disease. Moreover, many pets with collapsed trachea develop an enlarged heart due to the stress on the pet to breathe. Using these two formulas helps maintain healthy heart function and respiration.

Psystabil -- Dogs with collapsed trachea can become very anxious which leads to a worsening of coughing attacks. Psystabil is a natural homeopathic remedy that can quiet coughing fits and help them relax.

Power Probiotic and Lypozyme -- Ensuring your dog has proper digestion will reduce the likelihood of acid reflux and esophageal reflux which are painful and can make the symptoms of collapsed trachea worse. These formulas relieve indigestion and improve the breakdown of nutrients.

Not all supplements are needed by every pet. Just choose the ones most appropriate for your pet's symptoms. If you have any questions about the products for collapsed trachea, please don't hesitate to contact us at askariel1@gmail.com
