    His breathing has gotten better now that he is on this med for the last 2.5 weeks. I'm worried about his hydration tho. I want to make sure he is getting the water he needs so these meds dont leave him dehydrated.

They took fluid out from around his lungs again yesterday so we had a better day yesterday. We will see what this week brings...

    He is doing better today. The vet found fluid around his lungs and had to drain some. He has some sort of infection and when we left the vet his temp was 105.4 but he is a trooper and is still eating/ drinking and using the bathroom. The vet was very surprised that he was even moving. He is my...

    Hello New Friends

    He has an infection around his lungs. Brought on by the lower immune system from his shots. He had 12cc (1/2 once) of fluid drained from around one side today before he would take the vets poking him. The next few days are going to be hard. Prayers please for my little man.
