Does my dog have copd?
About 7 weeks ago, my 11 yr old toy poodle began to cough and have trouble breathing. The vet prescribed 3 different antibiotics over a course of 4 weeks, and cough tabs(dont know what kind) He never had a fever. The coughing persisted sometimes with gagging and some small amounts of mucus. He is eating and drinking and doesnt appear ill. The coughing is worse when hes excited or has activity. Today she prescribed steroids for indefinite use and diagnosed him with COPD. Should I get another opinion?  Are there other treatment options other than steroids?
