Hi, my uncle has a Japanese Chin who is 4. I have been babysitting her and she has had this awful cough. I brought her to the vets they said she had bronchitis, gave her meds, well that didn't work and I went out of town so another Uncle took care of her, got a second dose of her meds. This has not worked, she coughs constantly. I feel helpless in getting her help. What do you think I can do for her. Very low on money.....but want to help her.

You can give your Japanese Chin a shot for "Kennel Cough", most farm supply stores have these for $6.00, aka 7 way

I have a Japanese Chin with a flattened trachea. This is very common in Yorkies. He coughs a lot and sounds like he can't get his breath. He is on lasix. You might want to check this out.

I would guess your Chin has Kennel Cough. They can get over it on their own but it's anoying to listen to. Be sure to vaccinate her for kennel cough after she's well. Also vaccinate for all the other things she might pick up somewhere.

Your Japanese Chin could also have CHF. Congestive Heart Failure but most don't get this until they are at least ten years old.
