Foreign object pneumonia

Postby Scott Linden » Tue Sep 09, 2014 6:46 pm

A little help, please. Manny has apparently inhaled a cheatgrass seed and developed pneumonia in one lobe of his right lung. Got him on antibiotics ASAP, but am wondering if anyone has read or heard about other therapies I should discuss with the vet, or had experience with this kind of problem. I've heard horror stories about inhaled awn-type seeds and undetected infections and don't want this to go sideways. Thanks.
