I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I first need to know why Armani is having a hard time breathing and what a "hard time breathing" implies. Does he sound like his nose is stuffy? Does he have nasal discharge? Is he breathing with his abdominal muscles which usually indicates a lower respiratory disorder rather than a nose problem? Is his respiratory rate increased over 30 breaths per minute while asleep or at rest? Is he sneezing or coughing? Has he responded to Benadryl? Why has an antibiotic been prescribed? Have X-rays of his chest been performed? So many questions, I know...

I took him to emergency they suggested to put him asleep saying his lungs are all bad. So he is not with me anymore. I wish I got your response sooner

My condolences for your loss of Armani. I appreciate your taking the time to let me know. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
