How is Bella today? Hopefully antibiotics and other treatments are working and Bella is feeling and sounding much better.

Thanks for thinking of her Tina....she is still not feeling the best...very quiet...appetite is low...but...we are getting her puree into her one 1/2 tsp at a time ...she is taking all her meds and treatments like a trooper...I can still hear the fluid gurgling so it will take a few days to clear I'm sure...I look forward to getting my very demanding little diva back ;)
I always remember the Internist calling me one day to check up on her and she said " each day you have her is a good day " " and I am determined to have her for many years to come ! :daisy:

Amen, Jan. Good to hear she's eating even if it's slow going. Continued prayers and positive attitudes that we will be seeing those diva pics for years to come.

Bella had a very bad episode of coughing last evening...her lips were flaring ...the gurgling sound is hard to listen too......she had a ventolin neb tx and coupage... she settled after about 45 minutes....it was interesting to see her try and place her self to get maximum expansion of her lungs...front legs spread apart...instinct I imagine...anyway, after that she had a quiet night and ate some breakfast this morning with much encouragement from us.....she looks tired....she sleeps lots but does get up and go outside for bathroom breaks and usually will walk around smelling everything to see who dared to come into her domain while she was in the house !

I am such a terrible nurse that seeing that would terrify me, but I would have to take comfort in knowing it is necessary and a most likely a good sign to keep that stuff in her lungs broken up so it can go away. So glad to hear she's still ruling her domain--another good sign!!

I am so sorry she's doing so poorly. I will continue to pray for her recovery. Changing her position every two hours can help break up the secretions so she can cough them out, too.

I came on tonight just to see how Bella was to. Love that little girl and I think she has the best chi mommy in the world. Bella, I hope you feel better soon and get back to your little Diva self. My hubby and I are both thinking of you lots and sending prayers round the clock.

sweet Bella

Bella had a good breakfast...but I came home to mega regurg on the rugs...so she is not out of the woods yet....but she looks better and is taking her antibiotics without difficulty....she did well with her supper and I kept her 45 minutes in her Bailey chair post feed rather then her regular 30 mins to encourage the food to get down into her tummy...and hopefully stay there :)

Sunday morning....Bella is still very quiet...nausea remains problematic....but I can get some puree into her with lots of encouragement....she is alert, just not too interested in anything...she is already on 6 different meds so I am reluctant to add any more...but... the pneumonia isn't getting worse so thats a good sign that the antibiotics are working.....

Alert sounds good. Not sure if dogs are like humans in that, could the meds be causing the nausea? Baby girl has definitely been one sick girl. :(
