    Default Pneumonia at 9 weeks

    Our new puppy, Joey, has had a runny nose and slightly rapid breathing for a few days. Today she began coughing and we took her to the vet. We were told she has pneumonia, but we caught it early. She is still receiving 97% of the oxygen she needs. She was sent home with us along with some antibiotics.

    My questions is, has anyone been through this, and what can I expect from this ordeal? From what I've read throughout this site, this should clear up in a few weeks. I keep telling myself I'm worrying about this too much because this is my first bully (and puppy for that matter). I've included a picture of her relaxing on the vet's scale for your entertainment.

    Welcome to ebn, your baby is a doll!

    This can be serious if it is pneumonia. If she does not eat or drink I would rush her straight back to the vet for fluids. Hopefully this will not be the case since you caught it early. Just something to watch out for.

    Do you have a nebulizer machine or are you able to rent one from your local pharmacy? The best thing you can do if nebulize him every 3-4 hours. It will break up the crud he has in his lungs. I have been breeding Bulldogs for 10 years now & have been though this a number of times...trust me it works
    We have one of our past puppies back with us right now because he got Pneumonia after receiving the Nasal Bordetella Vaccine. If you can get one I can tell you exacting what to do. My e-mail is tobeastarrr@hotmail.com if you need me. Take care & I hope you little man is feeling better real soon!!!

    Oh my gosh what a cutie! Glad you caught it early but i would still be concerned, it can be very serious. I have seen a lot of puppies here get it, must be a common thing I guess? Keep us updated please! Oh and welcome. More pics please.

    Yes I went thru it several years ago with Goober they told me to keep him on the antibiotics, use a nebulizer on him several times a day then pound on him to help break all the phlegm up, with his head down and take off alot of his excess wt like your baby. That hurt him and me more than anything she told me that fat dogs cant breathe well, you might have them check her trachea if its small that may be why she developed it or she may be more prone to it again. I know that by the time Goober was well enough to stay home I had already spent about 4000.00 in vet bills and play taxi cab service daily to him, I would have to pick him up every nite and transfer him to the emergency clinic so they could treat him then pic him up in the morning and take him back to my regular vet, He actually stopped breathing twice during this period
