A Honking Wookie - Tracheal Collapse in a Pomeranian
Because Dr. Patt posts just about everything regarding the “kids” on their Facebook page, these posts have led to the request for a more formal article of the family's experiences together. So, Dr. Patt's article "A Honking Wookie" (see article below) is the story on how they managed Wookie's collapsing trachea, how decisions were made in his care and treatments selected. It delves into the various options and the personal difficulty of making these decisions for him in spite of the fact that Dr. Patt is not only his mom but also aa veterinarian. Her hope is that it will relay useful information to other owners going through this with their dogs and also share the importance of more research into this devastating disease that has no cure.
Addendum: Wookie lived 4 years following the placement of his tracheal stent and these were good quality years that we felt fortunate to share with him. His darling sister Luni was lost to TC one year later.
