Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical and may include the following:

  • Administer prescribed medications as directed by your veterinarian. Be certain to contact your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

  • Serial blood gas determinations and bronchoalveolar lavage cytology may be done to monitor therapy and the clinical course of the disease, though this is infrequently done because of the need for general anesthesia.

  • Eliminate smoke, chemicals, dusts or fumes from your pet's environment.

  • Notify your veterinarian if your dog is coughing. This is a prominent clinical sign and bronchitis is likely to be present. This is a different diagnosis than PF.

  • Control your pet's obesity. Discuss a weight loss plan if your pet is obese.
