    How long has it been since surgery? He may need more antibiotics. Has the Vet done a follow-up to ensure that the fluid/infection in lungs is gone? By the time the full antibiotic course is done your pup should be completely well.

    @Bullywood If your pup still has those chest sounds, you need to take him back to your vet, or another vet. Having been diagnosed with pneumonia, he needs to be checked again, and given more antibiotics, as Chip noted. This is nothing to fool around with.

    Hi thanks everyone for the advice and replies his surgery was 6 weeks ago heís been on antibiotics for 5 weeks.... after speaking to the surgeon vets yesterday they informed me that he has broncal problem and he may never get rid of the phlegmb problems and I just need to manage it ? ... they have said they will exray again and test fluid again to make sure pneumonia gone .. in himself he is much better far more energy and breaths far easier just hope I can get the phlegmb shifter for him
    Thanks again everyone
