I use to do this with my cat Huly when he was super little and had constant upper resp. infections. Lock him in a small bathroom and turn on a shower (where he can not get in the water) on hot. It turns into a steam room and helps open the lungs.
I know you hate the vet there but you can try to find one of these to help with any infection he might have:
•Keep the puppy warm and dry.
•Do not let the puppy go out in the cold weather. Low temperatures tend to constrict the bronchial tubes, making breathing more difficult.
•Help to boost his immune system is necessary. While you cannot do enough for it, feeding him with boiled chicken and brown rice will give him extra energy and sufficient support for his immature immune system.
•Get a cool mist vaporizer and put it near the place where he sleeps to keep the bronchial tubes moist for easy breathing.
Echinacea - Echinacea is an herbal supplement that supports immune health. People often use it and your dog can also experience the benefits of this natural product. The powder from the capsules can be put into the dog’s food or water, but be sure to measure out the dosage according to the dog’s weight. The pills are generally dosed out for a typical human size and this would certainly be far too much for your dog.
Vitamins A and E - Vitamin A can be found in cod liver oil, which your dog will probably take fine on its own or you can place it in the dog’s food. One-fourth of a teaspoon per day is the recommended dosage. Vitamin E can be given in the liquid form at a dosage of 50 I.U. per day.
