DR.J :

Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question

DR.J :

What makes you think he has fluids in his lungs ?

Customer:

he is bringing is food down is nose and i can here a clicking sound near is lungs i seen this before because i breed many dogs

Customer:

i dont no wether to just stop feeding him and let him go

DR.J :

Well - what you are describing could be several things , but if indeed you are concerned about fluid in the lung space then first you must have a vet just listen to his chest and let you know . If indeed that is the case then a low dose of Antibiotics will be warranted and supportive care as well (keeping warm and keeping on feeding). over time the lungs will absorb the fluid

Customer:

right so it can be treated if fluid yes

DR.J :

I would advise to keep on feeding slowly as best you can and give the little one the best chance .

DR.J :

Yes, You can sure try

Customer:

i am doing so he only weighs 4 ounces he certainly is trying bless him

DR.J :

It will not treat the fluid directly but will support the body and make it strong enough to fight it and survive it

DR.J :

so make sure to help him .

Customer:

thankyou i will ring a vet now see wat i can do thanks for your help

DR.J :

my pleasure .

DR.J :
