Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not rapidly improve.
        
Administer all prescribed medication(s) as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet. Maintain the dog's weight at a proper level. Avoid obesity, which can exacerbate clinical signs. Use a harness instead of a collar, to avoid putting pressure on the trachea. Isolate the dog from potential respiratory irritants such as cigarette smoke, noxious fumes or excessive dust.
