Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Thank you for your response Dr. Andy, Brewtus and I realyl appreciate it.
I thought that the Keflex was a weird antibiotic for him to take as well, see how I stressed my concern for his symptoms.
I do have one more question for you though. Like I said we have another appointment in the morning and I was curious how a blood work test would shot the doctor that he has a respiratory infection? Shouldn't another test be administered?
I really hope after the blood test he will prescribe on of the new antibiotics that one mentioned. If not, I will mention and possibly suggest them.
Sorry to keep you busy, just a few more questions...
1. What are the long term side effects of a respiratory infection? Only reason I ask is because Sunday we have seen these symptoms for almost two weeks now and have been too and talked to the vet multiple times.
2. How long, if on the right antibiotics, will the infection go away?
Thank you again Dr. Andy.

Hello Dr. Andy,
I just wanted to do a follow up after Brew's appointment today and see what your thoughts were on the vets new method of treating Brew's illness.
The CBC test showed that Brew had a higher white blood count, I really hope this means it is just an upper respiratory infection and nothing more. Brew's new antibiotics are Orbax 68MG once a day and Amoxicillin 500MG twice a day. I am on way to get the Amoxicillin and will start to administer them as soon as I get back.
He mentioned that if it he didn't get drastically better over the weekend to bring him in Monday morning for a nose culture swab to be sent to a lab and test for fungal growth. I'm praying that isn't the case because I imagine that will get very bad.
But I just wanted to know your thoughts...Thanks again.
