    I have never heard of it causing long term issues…

    Great question, I think if he has an extremely tough time with the pnuemonia (long term) it could effect the overall health later, but ANYTHING can do that, for example, a twisted ankle now could mean severe arthritis in the ankle later in life. However, I would not focus too much on that now and just stay on top of getting him better as fast as possible.

    Most important thing for any puppy is a good dog food, and NuVet Supplement to make a very strong immune system---

    Everyone above has you covered with great advice, I agree that I do t think it would cause problems later on, as long as it was treated and cleared up. I don't have any experience with pneumonia in dogs, but have had it myself as well as my son has had it, and we didn't get any long term affects from this. I hope Frankie is okay.

    Ruckus had pneumonia after getting sick from a bad reaction to his kennel cough vaccine. He was a pathetic little thing with so much green snot. He's strong as an ox now. I held off on neutering to give his lungs a chance to be healthy and strong before putting him under, although then I never had it done anyway. Moral of the story, really depends on the dog.
