Hello, this is Dr.Jess. I am sorry to hear about Bella! Is she still on an antibiotic? Does she have any difficulty breathing? How is her energy level and appetite?
And did this problem start before the antibiotics were finished? Do you know the name of the antibiotic?
Ok. If this is happening regularly since you finished the antibiotic, I would recommend consulting with your vet. I do worry given her history if some aspiration could have happened during her episode you described. It is possible that the antibiotic was helping treat a mild case of aspiration pneumonia, and now that it has been stopped, the pneumonia could be returning if she wasn't on a long enough course of antibiotc. The safest thing would be to have them examine her and perhaps reshoot her x-ray to check for changes in the lungs.
