I originally thought the problem was due to a milk intolerance and stopped all milk products. The rattling went away and was convinced that milk was the problem then all of a sudden it started again. The pup has not had milk for about 3/4 months and when she plays her breathing is naturally a lot heavier and the rattling can be heard. We live in the Pinetown - Durban and our vet can't find anything wrong although says she is in good condition. Looks like the pup will be a "tea-cup" size and the vet has already said he is too scared to operate if it is a pallet/nasel problem - which we can understand.

Thanks for that. There is a human medication called Bisolvon that can be used to clear mucous. You cna chat to your vet about using it to loosen the mucous and enable the pup to cough it out.

Have you considered that your dog is just allergic to all sorts of things? Mine has a breathing rattly sort of wheeze and weepy eyes both of which seem to be due to something in the air. He's better away from Gauteng.
