Low respirtory rate but hearing fluid.
- So Baxter and I are still battling fluid building in his lungs. It just isn't going down but he's more and more dehydrated. His respirory rate has been great, 24, 21 and 19 yesterday. Today its been good too.
But Baxter just had a straining bowel movement and after sat down to rest. RR issue 25 but he's got some major crackling going on.
Has anyone expirenced an issue where the RR is good but still hearing the fluid?
Also has anyone had issues were the fluid is just not going down with increased meds but issues with dehydration are a concern?
I`d ring the cardiologist tomorrow and ask about this. If the respiratory
rate is good, she isn't in distress, but crackles on the chest aren't good.
It might be worth asking the vet to listen as I took Trixi for crackles and
they were coming from her upper respiratory and she had an infection and
that's waht I was hearing. But I`d definitely ask the vet to listen and be
sure, they may need to add spiro.
