    Unhappy Update Fergus has Pneumonia

    Hi Everyone.

    First I want to say thank you! thank you! thank you especially @pdolphin27, @Scueva, @sheshistory, @Davidh, @desertskybulldogs, @Vikinggirl, @Sherry. As soon as I read your posts on my other thread I got Fergus in the car and went to the vet. The vet took a chest xray and there was fluid in his lungs with a compromised trachea. He said if I had waited till tomorrow his pneumonia would have been a lot worse because I got him in when I did he should be good as new once they clear his lungs. He is staying overnight at the vet hospital hopefully if everything goes well he will be home tomorrow. Please say a prayer for Fergus he looked so sad when I left him there .

    I had a mini breakdown when I was there and felt like I failed as a bully mama. I might have waited like I originally planned until tomorrow while my baby was getting sicker thinking I could treat him like my other dog who hasnt had any serious health issues in 6 yrs.

    To every bullie owner Kennel Cough is nothing to mess with. Fergus just started coughing last night and today he has pneumonia. Take them to the vet as soon as they start coughing.

    Thank you again
    Ashley

    Hi, first hugs, hugs, and more hugs your way, you're not a bad bully mama, or a failure. You asked for advice regarding kennel cough, and you listened to your heart, and made the decision to take him to the vet. We all love our babies, and do our best to do what's right, and what's best for them, but we are only human, and you couldn't have known he had pneumonia. It's hard to see our guys hurting, sick or in pain, and it's even harder when we have to leave them behind at the vet when they are sick. He's in the right place and where he needs to be right now to start antibiotics and treatment to get better. Once the antibiotics kick in, he'll start to feel better, and he'll be home before you know it. Try not to worry too much, I know easier said than done, but he's in a safe place. You'll miss him like crazy tonight, but hopefully he'll be back home tomorrow. Sending huge hugs, love, and prayers that he starts to get better tomorrow and comes home. I'll be thinking about him and praying for Fergus. Take care Hun, he'll be okay.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Don't be hard on yourself. You..after all..no one else, got him to the vet. I'm so relieved he will be ok. Take a deep breath...

    OH MY GOSH!

    Thank YOU @Ashleym for identifying a problem, asking questions, and acting on advice to care for your baby Fergus - he cannot ask for a better momma than that!

    I am SO glad you brought him to the vet and will be waiting for word on his condition...big hugs for a speedy recovery!

    Please listen to Monica's wise & true words, please don't blame yourself.

    This is not your fault and because you ARE a great Mom, you took him in
    and he is going to be fine as a result of your care & love for him.

    Life happens, Hun...look forward, not backwards & be thankful!

    Sorry I missed the thread and knew none of this, so shocking & scary!

    Praying for quick & complete recovery for dear Fergie, sending you LOVE!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
