Asthma in dogs, like human asthma, causes difficulty breathing and wheezing.
The shortness of breath is because of constriction of the upper airways. The upper airway or trachea and bronchi, like the human counterparts, improve with the water cures protocol.
When your dog gets bronchitis, it is called allergic bronchitis. An allergic reaction is usually the cause of the asthma that dogs experience.

You have probably noted how dogs tend to smell things. They have a keen sense of smell. Because of their propensity to smell things, they are at greater risk of getting an allergic reaction. That reaction in turn causes inflammation.
If you have ever had a cut or sore and noted the red swollen skin around the wound, then you have seen inflammation. This red swollen tissue is similar to what is happening inside the trachea and bronchioles. This is what causes the difficulty breathing.
Something in dogs domain is usually the cause. One theory: those in a state of chronic dehydration can become allergic to many things if repeatedly exposed.
Dog asthma usually affects the pups and may happen up to middle-age. This does not mean your older dog will not experience allergic bronchitis.
When your dog has a sudden attack, it is usually called acute allergic bronchitis.
When not treated for some time, physiological changes can take place. The damage to the lining of the respiratory tract can become permanent.
Asthma in dogs, although not common, usually affects older small breed dogs. Gender does not make a difference.
Some specific allergens put all dogs at risk. These allergens include cigarette, cigar smoke, wood burning stoves, fireplaces, carpet or floor cleaners, deodorizers and air fresheners.

What is the Dog Asthma Treatment
There is a simple solution to the asthma that dogs get. It is the same thing that so many with asthma have found to eliminate the symptoms of and allow them to breathe again. For those humans with cough variant asthma, there are other options that in theory would work the same for your dog.

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...
"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

We can cut the rates by up to 70%. Ask us how.

Listen to your body. Do not use this if you are under a doctors care. Do not stop taking medications without consulting your doctor. If you are on medications, consult your doctor if you start the Water Cures Protocol as it may change your needs.

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.
As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.
From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.
Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.
Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.
Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.
Why not give it a try yourself.
