    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.
