Hi all new on here & just asking if anybody has come across this problem before - my vet hasn't,
Took him in as i thought it might be the start of Laryngeal paralysis (he is often & getting more frequent - trying to clear his throat)
Tried Doxypin for 3 weeks - didn't help much
Had an explore of him whilst sedated and found these nodules all over his throat.
Vet has sent photos to specialist and he didn't know what they were.
Next step is further invasive exploring - but even then if they find more the vets not sure what to do.
My pal is 12 years old and i don't want to put him through unnecessary trauma
Apart from this - he's in great shape - had chest x-ray & bloods and all ok
Sorry for rambling - any observations greatly appreciated

I saw on vets on the hill show not long ago a dog that had i think it was warts in the mouth and towards the throat that the vet removed. I know what you mean at that age you have to way up whether treatment is to stressful

I think you need to talk through all the options, possible diagnoses and treatment plus long term outcome of such treatment if any, with your vet...

Only then can you make a truly informed decision.

Are your dogs tonsils inflamed. My dog has issues from his toad fishies.
If your dogs fine which its sounds like than i wouldnt worry. I saw on vets on the hill show not long ago a dog that had i think it was warts in the mouth and towards the throat that the vet removed.
Hi - no not inflamed at all - just the fact the vet didn't know what they were or the specialist he sent the photo to - the vet sort of told me see how we go but might be "Time" if gets worse - not an option i want to consider

I dont blame you i wouldnt want to either. Does the vet know whats caused it? I hope my dog dosnt get to that stage.
Ps just to clarify anyone reading this i am well aware toad fish are poisonous, there is more to it so no backlash please.

I don't recognise it at all and it doesn't look like any kind of tumor or wart so the first thing your vet will probably think of is either a parasite, a virus or allergies.

It might be worth asking the vet if he/she thinks putting him on an antihistamine for a week or so would be useful. With that you might be able to apply the "Sherlock Holmes" method and either confirm or refute allergies as a cause depending on what effect it has.

Just a thought.
