Firstly I would like to apologise profusely for my negative feedback, as I couldn't locate an answer anywhere, & there are so many spoof sites about. I realise now I was mistaken & realise I was too hasty, sorry.
Thankyou, Dr. Barbara for your kind thoughts. My vet said originally her immune system went haywire & they had to suppress it, giving steroids. Also Synolux for severe gastric inflammatory disease. The anaemia improved apparently & her white blood count improved. She appears to have got over the inflammatory disease, though & is in good spirits again.
The vet has not mentioned any heart defects.
The pneumonia was diagnosed on chest X ray results.
The first Veraflox course was 5 days, & the coughing spams almost disappeared along with the fluid-like sounds. Then she relapsed & is on a 10 day course of Veraflox now. At the moment she has a bad coughing spasm once or twice a day with noise of fluid - her whole body seems to spasm. Apparently the pneumonia is only on one side now, so there is improvement.
I may be able to email a detailed copy of blood test results, if that would help.
Also she has to go back to vet in a few more days, whereupon I can get the answers you require.
I feel now that your response has given us extra hope & reassurance, thank you so much Dr. Barbara.
