Earlier we had to give Zoey a nebulizer treatment because she couldn't breath we didn't even give her 1/4th of a dose, but I think it's still making her jittery...poor girl. The stuff makes my hubby & I jittery. Please Ignore the nasty fish tank behind her...I've been lazy and need to empty it, no fishies in there. We are keeping an eye on her and my dad is going to check her when I go to work this afternoon.

I know, I hate it, but there's nothing to stop the jitters, just have to ride them out...it was either the jitters or a dead dog though. The nebulizer helps open the airways faster than the rescue inhaler does.

Poor thing! She looks so pitiful. Isn't there anything they can do for her? Stint or something? I feel so bad for her & you! I feel your pain & I know you're a nervous wreck. Hopefully she'll be feeling better by tonite!!

Sweet little girl...better to be jittery than not being able to breath... she probably feels ok just wired a bit

Ugh...I just updated a long post, but it appears she was having a Petite Mal Seizure in addition to the jitters from the albuterol :-( They can do surgery where they put rings in, but Zoey is an extremely high risk surgical patient, her episodes are usually super bad like this once a year, and I can usually correct it by opening her trachea back up with my finger. The surgery has a high risk of complications afterwards too, so my dad, the specialist and I decided unless her episodes become more frequent the surgery risk, extreme expense etc wasn't worth it.
