I happened to get on the Forum and saw your post. Dani had a cough that got worse with time despite help from our vet. She had her teeth cleaned and an inflamed tonsil was discovered. The vet thought bacteria from the teeth caused the inflamed tonsil so Dani was put on antibiotics. But then our younger Havanese, Bella, began having similar problems and the vet found both her tonsils were very inflamed--worse than Dani's.
Antibiotics have helped but I still see little signs that mild inflamation might be there. We don't know what is causing the inflamation since there teeth are cleaned, etc. It's discouraging. I'm wondering if there is some virus out there that we don't know about?
I kept them off their core shots this year but not getting a rabies shot isn't even an option.
