Might want to talk to the vet about extending the treatment and/or changing drugs. Maybe something like amikacin? Was the possibility of aspergillosis mentioned?

no he never said what caused it.

I now looked at the baytril bottle oral

and it says give twice daily,  I have only been

giving once daily. would this be the reason for 

her still wheezing.?

and of course it is saturday and I have to wait

until monday to talk to him about extending treatment

and I can tell him about the Amickan. 

How long does it take for hen to get over this.

he did mention asthma.
