Brachycephalic syndrome is a pathological condition affecting short nosed dogs and cats which can lead to severe respiratory distress.
Tracheitis – is an inflammation or infection of the trachea or windpipe.Laryngitis is an infection or inflammation of the larynx (the tissue and cartilage that close off the uppermost part of the trachea during swallowing to prevent choking). Infection or inflammation of other parts of the respiratory tract can accompany these two diseases. There are numerous causes including bacterial, viral or parasite infections; inhalation of allergens (allergy-causing particles) or irritants; tracheal injury or irritation and cancer.
* If this is your dog or cat, also use in conjunction with Trachi Aid drops, the HAMPL Infection Fighter 71 50ml (herbal antibiotic) drops and/or Herbal Lung 50ml
- Laryngeal paralysisor reflux and any type of paralysis of the esophagus or tracheitis is not fully understood. These types of spams can cause stricture type of collapsing in the canines species. e.g. Laryngeal Paralysis in Dogs | GOLPP Geriatric Onset Laryngeal Paralysis Polyneuropathy or Dogs with MG Myasthenia Gravis.
Clinical signs of laryngeal paralysis are primarily a result of progressive failure of the laryngeal muscles. Dogs with laryngeal paralysis are noisy when breathing in, particularly when panting.
In the early stages of the disease, owners may easily miss the abnormal sounds. As the disease progresses, the dog may fatigue easily, develop a bark change, and cough/gag when eating and drinking. Signs may progress for months to years before becoming a clinical problem for the dog. Severe upper airway obstruction can occur during strenuous exercise or in heat and humidity, which results in respiratory distress and collapse. The symptoms can snowball as increased breathing rates and panting cause the laryngeal folds to become swollen and inflamed and worsen airway obstruction.
- Tracheal hypoplasia is a form of congenital tracheal stenosis. It is characterized by an abnormally narrow lumen along the entire length of the trachea, rigid tracheal cartilages that are apposed or overlap, and a dorsal tracheal membrane that is narrow or obscured. Trachea. Vs Bronchi The trachea extends from the neck and divides into two main bronchi. Structurally similar to the trachea, the two primary bronchi are located inside the lungs. … Deeper into the lungs, each bronchus is further divided into five smaller, secondary bronchi, which provide air to the lobes of the lung.
Felines – Symptoms of Laryngeal Symptoms in a Cat
There are a number of underlying conditions that could potentially cause laryngeal disease in cats, which creates some variety in the symptoms the condition may produce. There are, however, commonalities in symptoms in all cats with laryngeal issues. These may include:
- Difficulty breathing.
- Vomiting or retching
- Lack of voice or change in tone or volume of voice
- Difficulty breathing after exercise or increased activity
- Presence of sounds during normal breathing, such as wheezing, whining or whistling.
Causes of Laryngeal Issues in a Cat
Laryngeal issues are seen more often in dogs than in cats, but it does also occur in our feline pets. The condition can be acquired, meaning that it comes on as your pet ages, or a hereditary or congenital disease in young cats, although this is less common.
Causes of laryngeal issues in cats include:
- Laryngeal paralysis
- Vagal nerve issues
- Inflammation due to infection, especially in the chest area
Muscular weakness or spasm
weakness, muscle spasms (tetany), tics, muscle cramps, hyperactive reflexes, Impaired muscle coordination (ataxia), tremors, Involuntary eye movements and vertigo, difficulty swallowing, reflux (called GERD – Gastroesophageal reflux disease).GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
is seen in both dogs and cats. (also known as reflux esophagitis, or acid reflux). It is a condition in which there is an uncontrolled back flow of gastric or intestinal fluids into the esophagus, which is the tube that connects the throat to the stomach. Gastrointestinal fluids – which include stomach acid, pepsin, bile, and other components – can damage the mucosal lining of the esophagus and cause inflammation, a condition called esophagitis. Younger animals with congenital (present at birth) Hiatal hernias are at increased risk.Megaesophagus – diffuse motility disorder of the esophagus in a feline or canine.
Applying homeopathic Trachi Aid drops before each meal or fluid drink and as well as afterward (drop on the body) this remedy will assist in the function of flaccid dilated esophagus resulting from severe diffuse motility. CANINES – Megaesophagus is generalized enlargement of the esophagus – a muscular tube connecting the throat to the stomach – with a decreased to absent motility. Esophageal motility is required for moving food and liquid down to the stomach.FELINES – Esophageal hypomotility refers to a decrease in esophageal peristalsis. Megaesophagus is a flaccid dilated esophagus resulting from a severe diffuse motility disorder of the esophagus.Clinical signs in cats with megaesophagus are typical of esophageal dysfunction.
Regurgitation is the most consistent sign.
Megaesophagus is seen more often in dogs as compared to cats. If not secondary to another disorder in adult animals, it is called “idiopathic” (cause unknown).
Megaesophagus can be secondary to other diseases such as
– Myasthenia Gravis, Thyroid, Addisons and other Neurological disorders.
- Regurgitation of water, mucous or food.
- (Regurgitation is throwing up without any warning; “vomiting” is associated with retching.)
- Loss of appetite or refusal to eat.
- Sudden weight loss.
- Swallowing difficulty, exaggerated and/or frequent swallowing.
- They will also try to clear their throat frequently with a “hacking” sound.
- Sour and/or foul-smelling breath.
- Many canines may be misdiagnosed with a gastrointestinal problem.
- Aspiration pneumonia is a frequent complication.
- Feeding Management
Your canine needs to be placed in a vertical feeding position immediately to avoid starvation and/or aspiration pneumonia. (Note: not an “elevated bowl.” Elevating the bowl does not place the esophagus in the proper orientation so that gravity will work.) Vertical feeding can be accomplished with the Bailey Chair. The canine must remain in the chair for 20-30 minutes post feeding to allow gravity to work. Food is fed either in a milkshake consistency or in “meatballs” works best. (If using the meatball method, they must be swallowed whole.) Each dog is different and experimentation with food consistency is required.
* Multiple feedings, 3-4 meals per day, is also suggested.
* Fluids must be consumed in the vertical position as well.
Applying homeopathic 1. Trachi Aid 50ml drops before each meal or fluid drink and as well as afterward (apply a dose of drop on the body) This remedy will assist in the function of flaccid dilated esophagus resulting from severe diffuse motility (diminished or absent motility) * Request bottle 1 only for megaesophagus conditions.
Naturopathic Advice for GERD (regurgitation undigested food):
- Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is one of the most effective home remedies for acid reflux. It aids digestion and helps balance acid production in the stomach.
Cat: add 3 drops in 1/4 cup of water. Add 1 teaspoon to every meal given.
Toy dog: 10 drops in 1/4 cup of water, add 1 tablespoon to every meal. Small dog: 20 drops (1 teaspoon) in 1/4 cup of water, add 1 tablespoon to every meal.
Med-Large dog: 2 teaspoons in 1 cup of water, add 2 tablespoons to every meal. If this is not strong enough, not reducing stomach acid, add some more drops into the water.
BiCarb Soda powder (not baking powder), dissolve 1/4 teaspoon in 1 cup of water.
Cat: add a small pinch to into 1/4 cup of water, then oral syringe 0.5ml side of mouth after meals.
Toy dog: add a small pinch drops in 1/4 cup of water, then oral syringe 0.5ml side of mouth after meals.
Small dog: add 1/4 teaspoon in 1/2 cup of water, then oral syringe 1ml side of mouth after meals.
Med-Large dog: 1/2 teaspoon in a 1 cup of water, then oral syringe 2ml side of mouth after meals. Baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate, is a natural antacid that provides quick relief from heartburn, the most common symptom of acid reflux. Note: Prolonged ingestion of baking soda is not recommended. Use it off and on, when needed. Initially do it daily for 4 days.
Other symptoms in pets can be: … nerve pain, laryngeal and tongue paralysis, paralysis of the tongue, tongue, pharynx and face paralysis, spasmodic attacks – larynx and trachea glands, influence tongue, swallowing and saliva, loss of appetite, painful sore throat, difficulty swallowing, lockjaw, oppressed respiration, larynx very painful, tongue disorder, nose, larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, pneumonia, bronchiectasis, lung disorder, cough, sore throat, respiratory failure, spasms of esophagus, constriction of throat, goiter- thyroid imbalance, goiter, constriction in throat, thyroid and laryngeal disorder.

Probiotic Nexabiotic Capsules (by Bioprosper Labs) The specific strains in of probiotics that are listed in the “Nexabiotic” contain “specific kidney supportive strains” such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Casei and plantarum, Streptococcus thermophilus, and Bifobacterium longum can also be extremely beneficial. These strains, which support healthy urea metabolism.
PET DOSAGE: Add a pinch in meals for cats, toy dog, and other small animals. Half powder from the capsule for small to med canines and a full cap of powder for large canines.
Mineral and Vitamins
Support MANY if not all of the above symptoms are because there is a “magnesium deficiency”:(80% of humans & albeit pets and farm animals have similar deficient).Please also consider adding this mineral to your daily healing health regime. e.g. Magnesium Glycinate Powder or Magnesium Liquid. Diluting some powder in water and add to morning meal and repeat in the evening meal.Or if using ReMag Magnesium liquid add several drops to meals twice a day. Some animals are also needing the B6, for (nervous system), so add some organic un sulfured black strap molasses 1/4 teaspoon or a Vitamin B6 – (P5P) (activated one) capsule (powder from the cap) which will assist the nervous system.E.g. I would use one caps (powder from a capsule) or 1/2 teaspoon of molasses for a small to med size dog, adding this to daily meals. Three times a day for 4 months.Its thought to reduce pain and inflammation levels and prevent cellular damage.
- 1. A deficiency in vitamin B-12 is one cause of peripheral neuropathy. Left unassisted, it can cause permanent nerve
- Vitamin B-6(P5P) powder from capsules will help to maintain the covering on nerve endings.
Here are 16 signs of a magnesium deficiency.

Older animals sometimes may need
Respiratory formula drops,
if symptoms do not change completely, look at the using a natural support formula for the heart. Example – Congestive Heart failure conditions there is the Congestive Heart Failure drops for old age heart support. However, often symptoms can greatly improve by adding minerals (magnesium) to the daily diet. Canines who have been de-barked, or may have laryngitis (a muffled – hoarse type of barking, gulping a lot etc). Other dry coughs are associated with tonsillitis or tracheobronchitis, such as the familiar kennel cough. Harsh noises are more often associated with airway problems than with lung or cardiac problems.
Cough Congest (gagging type vomiting cough, mucous congestion),
Cough Dry (a kennel cough or virus),
Congestive Heart Failure -1 drops (panting on exercise, lethargic, general old age),
Liver Detox formula (can be associated with tracheal collapsing).
The above remedies or other chosen ones can be used in conjunction with the Trachi Aid formula.
Dogs with Bacterial Pneumonia (lung coughing)
you will usually have a soft, productive cough that reflects the presence of mucus and purulent material within the airways.
Refer to: Pneumonia 112 Set,
Equine Equine Roarer or Trachea collapse, you will need the Trachi drops will help restore conditions plus the Keloid Scar Tissue formula – if surgery or injury to the esophagus.
NOTE: If injury or surgery to the esophagus – please contact us for further advice and guidance for optimum fast healing. if needed. eg. An all liquid diet is suggested while starting off initially while healing. If needing extra advice and help please contact us for assistance.
Canines or Felines Degenerative Polyneuropathy
Dogs that have more generalized signs (degenerative polyneuropathy) may present with difficulty swallowing, regurgitation, and hind end weakness.
Use Hind leg weakness, Magnesium drops in conjunction with Trachi Aid drops.
For weakness paralysis 1. Brain N Nerve 30ml with 2. Paralysis Gone 30ml (which is under the Wobblers condition Set)
There was a significant hepatic dysfunction in the majority of dogs with tracheal collapse. Liver function should be routinely assessed in dogs with the severe respiratory disease. If your dog has both conditions please also see the homeopathic formula called HAMPL Liver 36 formula drops.
– A deficiency in vitamin B–12 is one cause of peripheral neuropathy. Left unassisted, it can cause permanent nerve damage.
– Vitamin B-6 (P5P) will help to maintain the covering on nerve endings. Use the activiated Vitamin B6 powder from capsules * Thorne Research is a good brand also.
