Coughing Bouvier des Flandres!

November 15th, 2006, 09:30 AM

I have a 5 yr old Bouvier des Flandres female, that all of a sudden started coughing and throwing up a bit of mucus. After taking her to vet and getting xrays, we saw that there were white spots on her lungs! Vet said it could be either lung cancer(she's never been in a household that smokes!) or a pneumonia. Vet gave me antibiotics yesterday and diuratics and she seems better this morning. One more thing, she likes to drink outside, e.g sometimes dirty water. Could it be that she has a simple virus of pneumonia, or what are the chances of cancer? Thank you for response. :sad:

Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to tell, at least for us. Your veterinarian may be able to help you out with this. :)

I hope your doggie gets better! I had a Bouv for 14 years. :)
