Chronic Bronchitis in 13 yr old small dog

My 13.5 yr old dog has been diagnosed with Chronic Bronchitis and is getting worse instead of improving. I think the meds have done a number on her, especially the prednizone. She is a Jack Russell/Toy Fox Terrier mix and very delicate. I literally have to hold her upright 75% of time like a baby to prevent her from coughing.

The vets keep saying I should put her down but she's not ready yet. I want to detox her and get her off all the meds to see if that helps. I need to control her dry hacking coughing, which is the main issue. She has mucus but can't get it out. Her breathing is labored. Her appetite is good.

Is Drosera 6x and Antimonium Tart 12x the best for this? How many drops and how often?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You may give her Antimonium Tart 30c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and see how she responds in the next 7 days.

One dose means One drop in some water.

Thank you for responding. Its been a downhill battle. I have nebulized her several times a day for 2-5 mins each time which does seem to help and when she is outside she breathes better!! I spoke to my homeopathic doctor yesterday and decided to give her the Ant Tart twice in pellet form - 5 pellets each at 2pm and 6pm. He said to give her the liquid Drosera Homacord for coughing in between and I did twice at 10:30am and 2pm - 6 drops liquid on tongue. She has been coughing more since then. So I had to give her the other meds in the last 24 hrs or she would have coughed all day and night. She had her 1 puff of Flovent-2 x's daily,
Hydrocodone and Homatropine for coughing 2 x's nightly and Childrens Benadryl-1/2 tablet crushed at bedtime. I also had the Cool air humidifier on all day and night. Should I start the Ant Tart again today and do it with your instructions? I fear I may have to put her down this weekend as she can't seem to stop coughing!! IF can get the coughing taken care of, it would be great. Its a dry hacking cough with nothing coming out. She vomits at least once a day and it seems after that she seems better for a while. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE as of 3Pm today: she has vomited globs of mucus and yellow bile twice and it is coming out both ends. She took a walk and is happy and seems to feel better. Coughing bad all night long but mellowed out this afternoon with fresh air. I'm hoping the Antim. Tart. is cleaning her out. I have nebulized her twice and 1 puff of flovent which helped her AM bouts of coughing and honey and lemon in a syringe 2x's today.

Should I start the Antimonium Tart again today and stick with your instructions and wait the 7 days? It seems to be effective in her vomiting the mucus along with her meals. However, I do see some improvement. Please let me know when I can administer again. I have ordered some liquid Ant. Tart for future dosages. How many drops should I use?

Thank you so much.

If the improvement is taking place under the influence of the earlier doses you should not give her more doses. If the improvement comes to a standstill you should implement my suggestion.
