      Update on Ellie. Part 3

      So, we are at 7 months. I was told she had 3-6 months with treatment. We are at 7 with only eastern (holistic ) treatment. Her cough is getting worse and worse. I took her to the cancer vet thinking it could be her heart. It was not her heart the cancer has spread through their lungs. They prescribed hydromet (hydrocodine). The holistic vet more herbs. Nothing is helping ease her cough. I am not sleeping well as I wake up when she coughs and stress out. This happens throughout the night. Other then the cough she still has a happy appetite and is very active. I have been researching chronic cough for dogs with cancer and there is so little information. Anyone know of anything that could ease her cough? Thanks to anyone reading this. We are hanging in there.

      No experience, but am sending sympathy and hugs your way - cancer is such an awful thing to have to deal with.

      We've dealt with cancer but not in the lung. Sending hugs and prayers.
