He has been on orijen for months, i don't think its the food. I checked and there's no foreign object stuck there. He is still coughing up the white foam now. I'm really worried as we can't go through the flood to find vet. frown

My 5 years old pom started to cough up white foam yesterday. We took him to a vet, he didn't do any blood test or x-ray and told me it is just a flu, but he is not getting better with the medication, he still cough a lot. No diarehha, no vomitting, havent been to boarding and dogpark(we don't have one here). Searching on google only freaks me out more. Does anyone had the same experience before? What's going on with my dog? I can't take him to another vet as we are having a really bad flood over here. Please help!

Hi everyone, my name is Irene, i'm new here smile
my 4 years old chihuahua and pomeranian mix breed is diagnosed with Lipid Corneal Dystrophy 3 months ago. The grey area appeared last year, we brought her to vet, they said it's just a scratch and doesn't matter. She doesn't seems like in pain too, so we just thought she scratched her eyes. One day i noticed the grey area is growing bigger, we brought her to the same vet, he prescribed some antibiotic drops, her eyes has gotten worse after the drops. She started having watery eyes and squinting one of the eyes.

Long story short, brought her to another vet, she said it's Corneal Lipid dystrophy and drops won't work, she need to get surgery. The vet said she gonna cut a thin film from the cornea and do some stem planting there for it to heal. The thing is, i'm living in a country where vet doesn't have much technology or knowledge here, and if it's possible i don't want her to go under surgery at all! The vet here still uses injected anesthesia! How am i gonna trust them doing something to my pooch's eyes with such limited resources?
Anyone had any experience with Lipid Dystrophy before in their dogs? Any advice will be much appreciated!

Thank you so much cry
