I am an emergency room veterinarian - and if you are caring for a bronchopneumonia case at home and it is eating drinking and resting for an hour at a time.. That alone is pretty good :)
I am happy to talk to you,
Each day should get better - and you should not see nay decline in status ( if you did that would warrent a recheck with yoru vet or an emergency vet) Pneumonias can take quite some time to heal completely from and can require antibiotics for up to 4 weeks easily
also he had diahrrea for several days and today his poop was normal
That is great.. Likely there is a lot less stress on his body allowing his GI track/flora to heal.
oh good, thanks for your help, greatly appreciated
You are doing great with continued steam treatments ( for nebulization) an tapping on the chest (coupage) - these techniques can be demonstrated on Youtube if you need it, but hearing that he was producing some phlem is great !!!
