I don't know what to do!
I'm in turmoil over this one, and could really do with some advice!
A year ago, Rummy got a cold and got very wheezy, and we managed to trat him with antibiotics and he was fine. Since then, he's been a bit szeezy and i've doen loads to try and figure out what it could be, including looking at it being an allergy since it only affects him, not the other two.
about 6 weeks ago, the heavy sneezing and wheezing came back, so we took him to the vets again. He's had three courses of antibiotics (two different drops and some injections), but he's still not better. The vets doesn't think he can do anything more for him. Over the past few days his chest has become a bit swollen and we are going to take him to the vets again.
I don't know what to do about it... if the vets can't do anything else, and he is getting worse, how much longer do i let this go on?
Its killing me that he is not well and doesn't have the quality of life he should. He is still eating and drinking well and even tries to go in the wheel still, but is really struggling for breath sometimes, particularly when i try to look at him, or after a sand bath.
I don't want him to suffer, but i don't think i could actually say yes to putting him to sleep. He's getting on a bit now (about 4-5 years old), but he's still curious and as lively as he can be...
I really dont know what to do.
