Pico experienced that coughing, honking after his dental. The anesthesia tube they put down his throat irritated his trachea and caused some swelling.
Could that process of administering anesthesia for dental CAUSE a trachea to collapse? Anyone know? His was so bad this last time (after his 2nd cleaning) that I took him in and vet gave him a steroid. I'm at the point I really don't want him to go through that again because of my concern about collapsing his trachea.
