PUG OF THE MOMENT
MauryPH ID: #6965
Maury made his way to PugHearts as an owner surrender in The Valley due to health concerns. Our volunteers there said he could barely take a few steps without having trouble breathing and coughing. Once in Houston Maury made his way to our vet in Sugar Land where a complete exam and X-rays were performed. The X-rays confirmed that Maury has a bad trachea. In fact, Maury has a collapse of the entire thoracic trachea and a complete collapse of the Main Stem Bronchi. Thankfully Maury is heartworm negative. We estimate Maury to be 10 years old, and quite overweight at 29 pounds, with only about 3 teeth left in his mouth. He is currently being considered as a Quality of Life Foster, while we try to medically manage his breathing and coughing with a cocktail of meds. Maury is currently on Hycodan, Gabapentin, Prednisone and Benadryl twice daily. So far Maury is doing great. He is happy. He can relax, and his coughing has lessened. While we know that we can’t cure Maury’s trachea problems, our goal is to make him comfortable and happy for whatever time he has left. In his foster home Maury has mad many friends. He loves running around the yard and playing with his foster siblings. He sleeps in the big bed every night and hardly coughs at all to wake anyone up. He is on a diet that consists of Low Fat canned food, and despite being a messy eater, Maury seems to enjoy his new diet. We are hopeful that losing a few pounds will help his breathing as well. It’s been a joy to see Maury smile and play, and I look forward to seeing even more important while we work on his health.





UPDATE!!!

Maury has lost 6 pounds! His coughing has almost completely stopped! Maury’s medication has decreased down to only 1 pill, once daily (hycodan) He takes Benadryl on occasion for his runny nose. Because Maury has about 3 teeth left, he eats 1/2 cup of dry dogs food twice daily that’s been softened with water. He is no longer a messy eater because he doesn’t have to worry about breathing and coughing while he eats. Maury’s surgery is scheduled for next week where he will be mustered, and his palate and nares will be evaluated.
