    Pneumonia

    My guinea pig was just at the vet and had a chest X-ray done. She has been breathing heavily so I wanted to get her checked out. Vet said the X-ray doesnít show any fluids in her lungs so thatís good but then said that I should take her to another vet to be hospitalized with oxygen because she has bronchitis borderline pneumonia. I donít understand how she can have bronchitis if thereís no fluid in the lungs. She put her on doxycycline and baytril. She said the meds may or may not help her. 😢 She still eats and drinks and poops and pees normally. But her breathing is terrible.

    Please don't make duplicate posts. The people who read the forum regularly read all the new posts, so duplicates do nothing but clutter up the forum and scatter the responses in different threads.
