About three weeks ago our dog inhaled some food particles into her lungs and has been sick ever since.
The day it happened, I took Emily to the vet who checked her out and told me to come back if it does not get any better. Well, two days later she was not better at all, so we went back for a more thorough check. By then she lost all appetite and just was not herself at all.
The vet took much more time this time around and wanted to X Ray the dog for a clearer diagnosis. Have you ever xrayed a dog? I had to help the vet, otherwise I would have taken a picture of it all. The animal basically gets stretched out on her back and side, very similar to those rabbits you see at the butchers......
It was clear from the xray that Emily had a lung infection from the food she inhaled and the prognosis was 50/50. A set of three injections and a harsh regime of antibiotics and Cortisone was prescribed.
Emily is not out of the woods yet, she lost weight and has a hard time catching her breath when we go outside. But she is a trooper. Let's hope it will get better soon.
A VERY TIRED EMILY
