    I am so sorry to hear that Bella is so sick...I feel your pain. My Punkie went through the very same thing. She had a cough when we got her and the cough turned into an upper respiratory infection and then pneumonia. I got Punkie in July and it took until October to get her through the ordeal. Punkie was at the vet more times than I can count the first few months of her little life. I don't even remember how many different antibiotics she was on...but NOTHING was working. I was so worried, just as you are. As a last resort, Punkie's vet put her on ZENIQUIN which is NOT recommended for use in puppies but it was prescribed as a final effort to save her life. I don't remember the mg dosage or the number of times she had to take the meds. Zeniquin was the magic bullet that pulled her through. Within 24 hours, I could see a marked difference. After 48 hours, I was sure she was going to make it!! It was such a relief to see/hear her breathing normally after being on Zeniquin for just a couple of days. My Punkie was 14 weeks old when I got her. I'm just passing this information along in case the meds your sweet Bella is currently on don't seem to be working. You and Bella will be in my prayers...I pray that she makes a quick and full recovery. By the way, if you would like to discuss giving Bella Zeniquin, I can call my vet and ask what the dosage/mg was that Punkie was on. God Bless you and Bella.

    By the way, something I forgot to tell you is that our vet also put Punkie on Fortiflora mixed in plain yogurt. The fortiflora and yogurt help boost the puppy's immune system and keep the "good" bacteria from being killed with the bad bacteria from all the antibiotics. Punkie is 3 years old now and healthy. Good luck with your baby...

    Just re-read an saw that I missed the nebulizer, how are you nebulizing? Are you putting her in some sort of chamber? I've got a recommendation if you don't already have something that you're using.

    Sounds like you have a little fighter there, so happy she is responding well and has come home. Stick to her current med regime and call her doc if things get worse. for you and Bella keep up the good work Daddy

    Well, Day one is in the books She did great, kinda pissy when i had to wake her up to get some vaporized air in her system. But then again, I wasnt the most perky at 2:00 am The only negative thing that happend, is the 30 dollar humidifier i bought yesterday doesnt work haha

    She looks about the same today - maybe a little better. She is hungry and drinks - But now I'm so scared because of what the doctor said about her airway - and her chances of this happneing again. So i'm trying to figure out how to feed her a bit slower - and not drink so fast.

    Shes on hard food now, Blue buffalo puppy bits. I'm wondering if i should change this?

    I would not change her food right now if she is doing good on it, no sense messing up her tummy too. I hope and pray she keeps improving, and the good thing is she wants to eat and drink. We will keep the prayers and good thoughts coming her way.

    Oh I know both of you will pull through this. It is amazing what we do for our little bullies. My Bella was a very sick puppy for months, but I did what I needed to to get her through it. You will find the strength through you love for her. My prayers are with the two of you.

    Always with me
