Common Questions and Answers about Pneumonia antibiotics cat

pneumonia

I was diagnosed with pneumonia about 3 weeks ago. I've been on a Z pack, Avelox, predniszolne, and Albuterol pump. After 3 visits to the ER, I am still coughing and wheezing and have shortness of breath. The last ER doctor gave me a nebulizer machine and Albuterol solution. I am also on Allegra. When will the coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath end? 3 chest xrays and a lung cat scan all came back clear after the antibiotics were finished.
Hello: since I had my baby 2-1/2 years ago, I have had pneumonia 5 times. I am always tired. I recently had a CAT scan and bronchiscopy to see if there was possibly something more wrong with me. Nothing unsual found. My right lung, middle lobe is where the pneumonia continues to reoccur. I have always been healthy. I used to workout 5-7 days/wk. prior to having Sam. During and after the pregnancy, I have not worked out at all. I am 5'6, 130 lbs. Please help.
I don't have any experience with pneumonia on tx. but I believe there was a post a few days ago about respiratory issues. Glad you are seeing your gp. Just wanted to send my best wishes!
But in November I developed a cold which turned out to be pneumonia well i was on the antibiotics for 14 days..In December I went to the Dr and again I had pneumonia in the other lung. Again I was placed on 2 antibiotic treatments..My Docotor didnt like that I developed it 2 different times and is having me see a pulmonologist. Well I am concerned and was wondering if this could be from being weakend after so long?
They say its a class B which means there arent any studies whether its safe or not. 16wks and have a sinus infection and I'm wondering has anyone taken a Z-pack for antibiotics and had any complications?
I had a slight case of pneumonia that began Dec. 11. I was given antibiotics, etc., and felt much better by Christmas. My daughter gave me a lovely kitten for Christmas (having checked with me first), but after a week, I had so much trouble with weeping itchy eyes, shortness of breath, that I had her take the kitten home with her. Now I wonder whether the pneumonia may have made the problem worse and now that I've recovered, could I have the kitten back?
The doctor that took over reviewed her case and ordered a CAT scan. He said she had pneumonia and admitted her for treatment. I was so happy that the doctor really checked her out and so I filled out an evaluation letting the hospital administration know what a good job that second doctor did in carefully checking my Mother's condition. Unfortunately, a few months later, there was an "infection" where the regular doctor again instructed me to bring my Mother to the ER.
I notice a LOT 'missing here' ?? In ER Monday. Attending Dr. did cat scan, found pneumonia, feel's immune system not so good yet (as I figured) , also may have stomach virus (more vomiting than on any of tx) wanted me back today but didn't want to do the ER thing again :( If not better, keeping me there :( :( The compromised immune is why I am more concerned with this, 2nd time I've had in 2 years. May go to Shands tomorrow, than their all off to Italy for study seminar.
I spent 6 days in the hospital, 4 in ICU with an unknown strain of (presumably) pneumonia. I was on antibiotics for typical and atypical strains and recovered fairly quickly after discharge. I spent two additional weeks resting before returning to work. They never actually made a complete diagnosis; something I am told is not uncommon. I went for a chest CT in early October to check the lungs.
Every time I would get better something else would happen and my most recent sickness is pneumonia that I was diagnosed with about 3 weeks ago. I was told it was in every single part of my lungs it could be in and I have been on antibiotics since. The first 10 days I was on levaquin and I did not get any better. I was still running fevers and when they did my follow up chest x-ray it looked exactly the same as it did before they treated it.
I'm SURE he needs antibiotics. I can not afford a vet. I have some Augmentin, Is that ok to give a cat? I know amoxicillin is, but augmentin is a combination of amox. & something else. I really want to help this cat; i'm afraid he'll die if i don't. What should i do?
Nov 17 - Surgery was done to clear dense fluid and tube to drain fluid to treat bacteria pneumonia. Vancomycin was used as antibiotic. Nov 18-Nov 23 - difficulties getting Vanomycins to Therapeutic levels - culture fluid from lungs showed streptococcus pneumoniae - Switch antibiotic to Bactrim due to sensitivity - Spiking fevers but has slowly shown improvement in blood number and fever level.
these are your antibiotics? why do you think your kitties need antibiotics? what strength are they and how much do the kitties weigh? you do know that using an antibiotic on cats can be dangerous...you have to be very sure there is an actual infection, than the culture needs to show what antib will work for that strain.
Each time she shes a DR she gets different answers. The 1st time was you are allergic to your cat, so she got rid of her cat. She quit her job working in a kitchen because they thought that was the problem, however this is still ongoing. Her DRs dont seem to be overly concerned and tell her she just has colds often and her lungs get infected easily. This has been very frustrating, any suggestions as to what we can do?
It commonly leads to bacterial infections that require antibiotics to cure. Pneumonia is also a somewhat common complication. Most cats will stop eating when suffering this infection due to mouth pain. Adult cats usually aren't as affected as kittens are, but this is a tough infection for cats of every age and can be fatal if not managed. Hospitalization is needed from time to time if the cat will not eat.
Have you tried give your cat a laxertives for your male cat? have you also tried exercising his legs for him while he is laying down?
Is there a web site that may have info about taking Antibiotics while on Pegasys/Copegus? No one I've contacted seems to know. I have contracted a terrible sinus infection and first called Pegasys. They have no research data about antibiotics in combination with their tx. How bizarre is that? Yet, they told me my GI should be able to advise. I called them. They won't advise about any other problem not directly related to my liver. So...
might have helped the doctors to find the pneumonia. On the other hand, pneumonia this virulent superimposed on radiotherapy would be associated with a high mortality rate. Your father might well have died, even if the pneumonia had been found and treated with antibiotics and intensive supportive care. Please do not feel guilty. You obviously loved your father. Your acceptance of the advice offered by his doctors was made in what you deemed to be your father's best interest.
he says i have lyme though doesnt meet the cdc criteria. now i find out he doesnt like to prescribe antibiotics and wants me to do soome 2 month detox program, get checked for heavy metal toxins and treat that if needed, also remove/replace any metal fillings then and only then would begin to actually kill of the da&n spirochetes. wtf! i have lost my job my house missed out on the first year of my daughters life and now can't get antibiotics?
His teeth have gone from a beautiful white to a dark grey. I was told today that the antibiotics kill both good and bad bacteria and that that possibly his diarrea was caused by this and that they will have to treat this with another antibiotic. Is My question is this, I don't really understand any of this can you explain this to me in plain english? I'm very frustrated because he is so small, almost two.
I had pneumonia five months ago. I am 42 year old female, non-smoker, otherwise healthy. Thought it was viral but couldn't tell. Was hospitalized 11 days. Have been on Advair 500, Atrovent, Salbutamol,Allegra, and numerous antibiotics. CT scan showed normal. Saw Pulmonologist who thought it was either asthma, inflammation from pneumonia persisting, or bronchitis or combo. Tested normally on his "glass box" tests.

My 69 year old husband (MRSA +ve noted on hospital routine rectal swab) who had been in excellent health other than an infrequent, harsh,dry cough for the past year, acquired pneumonia 10 weeks ago.

My 17 year old cat has always been a hearty eater. He had a hyperthyroid condition that we treated successfully with radioactive iodine a few years ago. Lately he hasn't eaten much and has gotten very thin, and he tends to stagger when he walks, like his back legs are weak. We went to the vet, who tested him for diabetes, hyperthyroidism and did general blood work that all came back negative.
My son is 4 1/2 and has had pneumonia on and off since he was 5 months old. He was on Pulmicort and albuterol after a short visit in the hospital at 5 months old but the pediatrician gave me no valid reason for him to be ont hem so long so I swithched pediatricians when he was 7 months. The new pediatrician took him off of the pulmicort only to put him on albuterol when he would get pneumonia; which was about 5 times a year. The Dr.
Because of FIV he was slower than my other cats, and I looked out for him when he was outdoors. If you want to torment your cat with all those antibiotics it is your call.. If you want to spend thousands to try and save him that is your call 2. My vet wanted to clean his teeth at a cost of 400 dollars . I declined that. Cats with FIV tend to get a lot of plak buildup on there teeth. You can brush your own cats teeth which they hate with a passion, or you can have the VET do it.
Hello, I lost a cat also to CRF over a year ago after a four year battle. I have a cat now that has has elevated kidney values , creatine 2.8 and BUN of 56. Where to start, since you are familair with this disease and have some knowledge, I guess you know that dry food is the worst thing we are suppose to give to any cat who has kidney issues.My cat was a dry food junkie and it took awhile to convert her over to strictly canned food.
He thought it maybe walking pneumonia, gave me a prescription for repeat CAT scan ( which is due in a few weeks time ) and said we'll take it from there. MY CONCERN is could it really have been walking pneumonia, there was no increase in the wbc count - my neutrophil count was 75 and lymphocyte 16. Other than I only had an instance of wheezing and some shortness of breath. I did have some achiness and felt very cold all the time along with some chills but wasn't running any fever.
I will have repeat xray possible cat scan. Asking in advance. How often is this found? Can pneumonia look like lung cancer? Day two of medication and I do feel better and fever broke. I still have pains from my cough and still expereince the sweaty, hot and cold bouts but feel better despite general aches and pains. They said possible cavitary pneumoina. What is this?
