Respitory infection

Postby Deanobeano1979 » Tue Mar 05, 2019 1:54 pm

Hello all,my 9 month old bd, was blowing some bubbles out of the side of his mouth,and gasping every now again so I took him to the vets and they said that there was a very slight shadow on the chest,and had to have a second opinion,and they both said that shadow was very faint and nothing to worry about,but they then gave me 10 days of antibiotics to inject once a night,now the 10 days of antibiotics have been done,he is still blowing bubbles out of the side of his mouth,but I really don’t understand why the antibiotics haven’t cleared it up even tho there wasn’t really anything to clear up,is there any other reason that the bubbles are coming out of the mouth,he is eating normal,going to the toilet etc,any advise would be grateful

Did the vet take a culture to test for an infection? If there is an infection, it's possible that it is resistant to the type of antibiotic that was administered. It's also possible that the injections weren't effective and perhaps a nebulizer treatment would work better. If he's otherwise acting normally and eating well, that's a good sign. What is his primary diet?
