I have a two and a half year old female that is turning out to be a nice dog. About two months ago I was running her and after about an hour I couldn't hear her with the rest of the pack. Concerned that something had happened to her I quickly got to them. She was right there in the middle of the race but her voice seemed to be strained and was hard to hear. I rested her for about a week but it was still the same. Took her to my vet and he said it was from over barking and steroids would clear it up. First ten days of steroids there was no change. Increased the dose and all together she has been on steroids for a month with no change. Questions I have are is her vocal cords/throat permanently damaged? Is there any other treatment I can try? Should I consider breeding her? Any input Would be appreciated.

Its like a singer whose vocal cords get ruptured, strained. I would rest her some more. Then try again. Where does she run in the pack? first, third, middle or last. Maybe she's straining to keep up and is constantly barking and by the time she catches up the pack is gone again, she never has time to be quiet and rest her voice. JMO

She runs close to the front never in the back end, She's not at all what I would call "mouthy" running or in the kennel. Only ran her one time since I started her on steroids a month ago.

I’ve been told to dose her with la200 down the throat and I’ve also been told hot mustard will help but I’ve never had the problem so I can’t say for sure.
This is a first for me. Have never had a dog with this problem before.
