Default coughing

Hi everyone: Emmie was coughing a lot this am. 4 times in one hour, many times this am. It was raining and nasty outside. She is an inside dog, so although it was cold (45) it was 74 inside. She continued to cough most of the morning. I take a nap about noon. She sleeps with me, on her bed at the end of my bed. She did not cough at all during that time. About a hour and a half. This pm she was much better.

The vet prescribed codeine for the cough. This medication makes her not feel well. Gets gooey BM's. Does anyone have any other medications they were given? This cough was diagnosed as tracheal collapse, caused by an enlarged heart. She is not on any heart medication as the vet says she is not in failure---yet.

I didn't call the vet this am, I just waited to see if it improved, and it did.
