Our American Eskimo developed a cough about a month ago. She has an enlarged heart and possible collapsing trachia. She's 15 yrs and has been put on Tussigon. However, when she's on it she stops eating. Is there an alternative withouut the Homatropine additive?

Tussigon contains Hydrocodone and Homotropine. Tussigon itself is not available without the Homotropine, however, there are some other medications that are.

To obtain them, for your dog, however, you will need to speak to her vet about this problem, as they do all require a prescription.

Your vet will also want to determine what is causing her to stop eating, as it could be either ingredient in this medication or something else entirely unrelated.

Have you consulted them, yet?

It was our vet that brought it to our attention when she stopped eating after taking it. However, he has not offered up an alternative. She has an enlarged right ventricle which is causing the constriction of the airway. As of today she has not had the tussigon and only caughs occassionally. Also her appetite has returned. We will re-visit it with the vet.
Thanks.

My dog has the exact same problem....enlarged heart, collapsing trachea. Since she has been on hydrocodone and homatropine she has stopped coughing all together.
