Oh, I hope someone can help me. My male Boston Terrier is 5 months old and has breathing problems, wheezing, couphing etc.. A vet thought it was a cold, tried 3 antibiotics; none of them worked. i am wondering if anyone has any advice to give me?

Bendryl seems to work
by: Anonymous

My Boston is 10 years old but lately has been snoring VERY loudly and even struggles during the day to catch her breath and stop sneezing. I started giving her one Benadryl in the morning and one at night and she is back to normal! (Weigh your pet first. The Vet said Benadryl is safe with 1 mg per pound. My dog is 26 pounds so she can have one 25 mg tablet every 8-12 hours.)

So Loud
by: Anonymous

My Boston snores and snorts all the time and it is so loud and annoying. I feel bad for her but I can't stand it. Did anyone have surgery done and if so, did it fix it?

restricted nostrills
by: Anonymous

I heard some flat nosed breeds suffer from restricted breathing. There is supposed to be a simple surgery where a vet can slit the membrane in the back of the nostrils to allow for better breathing. I am dealing with this very problem with my 5 month old Boston myself. I have an appointment with my vet to discuss this surgery and hay him neutered. I will post my findings.

My little Boston is about a year old, and he gets really bad breathing-he stands still and tries to breath real hard through nose but really struggles, it lasts for about 20seconds, any comments on this please.

Could be allergies. Try giving him 25 mg.(1 pink pill) of Benadryl (or generic) and see if there is a reduction in the symptoms. If so, consult your vet and tell him what you have discovered. IF it doesn't work, find another vet.
