Hi All, I have a 15 year old westie called Kenny, I've had him since I was 7 and he has been my only ever pet. He has been diagnosed with Weslie lung disease around 18 months ago, the vet did not make a big deal out of it and never raised any alarm bells, we were under the impression that it was not a server or life threatening condition. However, back in June this year, Kenny had to go under general anesthetic to remove a lump on his leg and then in July had to have an emergency procedure on his poor... so within the space of 4 weeks he was put under general anesthetic twice. Ever since his second procedure his breathing has become quite bad, to the point that he collapsed whilst sprinting a couple of weeks ago. I rushed him straight to the emergency vet's, and they were not that concerned and said to just keep an eye on him. Since that point I've been on edge everytime he tries to walk quickly!! I'm looking for a westie specialist vet, as I don't believe he's being given the right treatment. I've been told by my vet's that steroids aren't used until the final stages?
