Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi, Lisa -- The congestion is only in the nose. Chest is clear. They've done x-rays and there are no signs of tumors or foreign objects. My vet today flushed out his nose and centrifuged the material to get a concentrated sample to send to the lab in hopes of them finding something to try to counteract this thing, whatever it is.
Thanks, Lisa. I've relayed these suggestions to my vet. I really appreciate your trying to help me and my little guy.
Hi, Lisa -- On Monday my vet flushed out Harry's nasal passages, put the material in a centrifuge and some other process and concentrated and purified the material and send it to the lab for further cytology analysis. The results came back last night that the likely cause of his issue is short bacilli bacteria, and is now trying zenaguin, a different antibiotic in the Baytril family (Baytril was one of the antib's that hadn't worked). So I've got my fingers crossed. Thanks so much for checking. Nancy
