Need prayers for Dixie....msg

She has been a little under the weather for a couple weeks, I gave her clavamox and that seemed to help a little, but now today she's breathing quite badly. Took her to the vet, they did an xray, and ultrasound, gave her fluids (she was dehydrated), and I'm a bit scared cause the xrays showed some fluid in her plueral space around her lungs, which is causing the harsh breathing. He didn't hear a problem with her heart but he's not sure yet, it could be that but he's leaning toward a lung infection. |
Bottom line, she came home after a shot of Convenia, and also a bottle of clavamox for me to give (he wants to double whammy this) thinking it may be a lung infection, (she had a small fever).
Her kidneys were working well, tested urine.
got her home now, and she's still not breathing well. I guess I can't expect the antibiotics to kick in that quickly, but please say some prayers that they do.
I hope tomorrow when I wake up she'll be even a bit better, that would be heartening.
Very upsetting, tomorrow is Sunday, no vet is open. And we bought tickets a month ago, to see a Chinese production in Chicago tomorrow. If she's worse in breathing, i'm not going to want to leave her. I hope she's better.
Send some prayers please. she's a sweet kind little girl. She's 14 1/2.
