As I have mentioned I had to have my very old precious dog put to sleep. Since then I have had my house thoroughly cleaned and I am breathing a lot easier. Although my asthma has not gone away. I do have another dog at home - also a poodle who is 13. Is it possible this dog is giving me problems? Poodles don't shed so I don't know what is causing this. I am seeing a 2nd lung specialist in 2 weeks so maybe he can tell from all my tests what might be wrong. I had the carpeting and all my bedding washed (in fact I bought all new hypo allergnic bedding including the best dust mite covers for everything.) And I have had breathing problems even when I have been away from my home for long periods. My carpets are all the non-allergy kind, no wool. And I have
opened windows since it has cooled down and let lots of fresh air in to air out the house. The odd thing is I never had breathing problems like this before. It all started in July. I used to wheeze when I got a cold but it always went away. I can't understand how something can just flair up like this and so bad.I never had problems in my other house where I did have wool carpeting and the dogs slept on my bed. Why did this happen after so many years? Well, I hope the next lung expert can give me some clues. Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.
