Calcium Buildup in Lungs of Dogs

Treatment

 

There are some medications that can relieve breathing problems, or antibiotics and antifungal medications, if your veterinarian determines that there is a concurrent infection.

 

If there is an underlying metabolic disease, your doctor will prescribe medications for the treatment of that as well. Otherwise, all that is required is a a calm and quite space for your dog to recover.

 

Living and Management

 

As with any disease of the respiratory system, this is a serious condition. You and your veterinarian will need to carefully monitor your dog’s progress.
