Murphy has recently been diagnosed with chronic lymphopasmacytic rhinitis. It is extremely rare, and my vet has never treated a case prior to Murphy. We did see an Internal Medicine Specialist who conducted his tests including a rhinoscopy and biopsy and prescribed several meds...but they did not help him. He is struggling to breathe most days and his nose runs constantly which makes him crazy. He has long, difficult episodes of reverse sneezing that scare him to death. Over the weekend he had a really difficult time, and wasn't able to sleep at all on Saturday night. When he's really bad he can't breathe out of his nose, and he can't sleep or put his head down because he is forced to pant and breathe out of his mouth. After watching him gasping for breath Saturday night, I was pretty much thinking the time had come to euthanize him. I talked to my vet on Sunday and she said she would reach out to the large Vet community countrywide and see if she could get advice. She heard back from several vets who said that they had never been successful in treating this, but two did say they had positive results with three meds taken in combination. The problem is that two of them are strongly contraindicated for dogs with IBD, and Murph is currently in remission from IBD. The third med is an inhaled asthma med called Flovent ($425 per month). So we put him on that starting last night, but are not going to introduce the other meds until he has another episode that is severe enough to consider euthanasia....thinking it's better than that alternative even if it triggers another IBD episode. So right now his breathing is still labored, but not as bad as over the weekend. We know there is no cure for this disease, but I'm trying to find anyone who may have had experience with it. We've gotten Murph through so many illnesses with a great vet, but this one is feeling different because it's so rare and there's very little info out there on how to treat it. I'm thinking maybe someone is this great Doodle community will have delt with it and can share their insights.
