Problem: Kennel Cough & Respiratory Distress
Two weeks ago, my wife and I adopted Penny, a two-year-old Vizsla Lab mix from our local humane society. On the day we started the adoption process, we were told that she had a kennel cough. Due to an administrative mix-up, we had to wait an extra day to bring her home, and so we asked that she be examined by a vet over night. We showed up the next day and Penny’s overall health had seriously declined. She was having trouble breathing, lethargic, and was sneezing bloody mucus. We finalized the adoption.
We brought her home and she met our other dog Daisy (also a 2-year-old Vizsla Lab mix) and kept her quarantined in our guest bedroom. I stayed with her in the room that night to monitor her breathing.
At one point, she was having more difficulty breathing. So, I called our local 24-hour Animal Emergency Hospital, described her condition, and wanted to take her in. The emergency hospital vet assured me that with this issue, and there was no need to check her into their emergency clinic and advised me to take her to our regular vet the next day.
On Tuesday our vet ran a battery of tests on Penny, and X-rays showed that she had a serious respiratory health problem. Her lungs were filled with fluid. We were told that if it got any worse, she would need to be put on a ventilator, and were told to keep a close watch for signs of respiratory arrest. They prescribed antibiotics (Clavamox and Marbofloxacin) in hopes that it would help. We were told that these antibiotics do NOT affect fungal problems, and were prepared to take a different course of action if her condition continued to decline. We were desperate to get her well, and the antibiotics didn’t seem to have much effect.
I did some research on the Internet, and found the Nzymes.COM website on 9/14, and ordered the Ox-E-Drops and a bottle of Nzymes® Antioxidant Treats next day air. On 9/15, the Ox-E-Drops and Treats arrived. Immediately I used the Ox-E-Drops in a vaporizer (see our Healthy-Respiratory Video) in four to five 15-minute intervals over course of the day and night. I also began giving Penny and our other dog the treats in their food. By the middle of the next day (9/16), Penny showed marked improvement. (Note: I had used the vaporizer previously without the Ox-E-Drops, and her condition did not seem to improve.)
Penny was breathing deeper and had a developed a productive cough enough to expel the mucus and phlegm that was clogging her lungs. And, she actually, picked up a ball, and wanted to play!
It is now a week after we first brought her home when she literally seemed like she was on death’s door. She is doing fine, breathing well, playing with our other dog, Daisy. She acts like a totally different dog, happy, impish (of course), and playful.
I now give both Penny and Daisy the Nzymes® Antioxidant Treats daily. I have no doubt that the Ox-E-Drops helped bring her back from this serious illness and played a major role in helping her recover in tandem with the cycle of antibiotics. In the past, I have worked with other pets’ illnesses with antibiotics alone, and their recovery was never this fast. I never thought I’d be writing a testimonial like this. But I just wanted to let you and others know how Ox-E-Drops brought Penny back from an extremely grim issue to being a happy, healthy dog. I must admit that I was fairly skeptical about Nzymes® Ox-E-Drops when I first ordered them but wanted to give Penny every chance to get better. I’m not a skeptic anymore.
