Has anyone here had any experience with pnemonia? I noticed two weeks ago my cat doing what I thought was trying to bring up a furball. Didn't notice him doing it again till last week. I bought some over the counter furball stuff and used vasilene on his paws. He didn't seem to pass anything and was eating and peeing fine. Two nights ago he was defineatly not himself so I call the vet in the morning and made an appointment. Yesterday I took him to the vet and he had a temp of 104. The vet thinks he has a furball but that he may have asperated into his lungs abit so he gave me clavamox. He also gave me laxatone. Told me if he gets worse by Friday to bring him in but that he won't show improvement for a few more days. I have been searching the net and everything I read about lung asperaition is not good. So I am wondering if anyone has experience with pnemonia? Did your cat get better? How long did it take and were there any lifelong issues? My cat is 6 months old and just a few weeks was nuetured which he seemed to recover from but seemed depressed afterwards. The vet says he has labored breathing but that he couldn't hear any fluid in his lungs. The vet didn't seem all that concerned. God, it is awful when one of my fur babies is sick.
