    Default Vibes for Fizzgig please

    Fizzgig has developed a respiratory infection. She's been on Enrocare for a week and we took her back to the vet today because she was getting worse. We've now got her on doxycycline in addition and she is now being nebulised every few hours. But I can see her getting worse. She is gasping and struggling to eat, and despite stealing an oaticakes out of a tub an hour or so ago, she has started to hide herself away. Until today she was still eating well but the signs are very worrying now. I don't know what more we can do for her?

    Oh poor Fizzgig Did the Vet mention giving a diuretic. If she has fluid on her lungs then a diuretic would help clear it. This could significantly help her breathing.

    Bronchodilators can also help open up the airways

    A mucolytic such as Bisolvon can thin out mucus secretions and make it easier for them to drain out

    I am assuming Fizzgig is spayed ?

    Hi Jane,

    Yes she's spayed, she's a dental bun and she's been getting a pinch of bisolvan since last Friday along with the enrocare. The vet didn't mention a diuretic though.

    Loads of vibes for Fizzgig, really hoping she turns a corner soon. Dandelions are a natural diuretic x

    Thank you, I spoke with the emergency vet and she advised against taking her in tonight, said to syringe feed if needed and keep up with the nebuliser. If no improvement then we can take her back tomorrow. She's still keen to eat but it's clearly a huge effort right now. X
