Pneumonia - dog health experiences

In 1989 we were offered a Australian Terrier for $100. On October 13th, 2007 our little friend of 18 years went to sleep for the last time. Pepper has lost his hearing a year ago, was going blind, and had arthritis, but would still look at me in the morning to take him for a walk, though each time the walks were getting shorter. On Friday morning he could not catch his breath, began making squeeling sounds from his throat, his chest was heaving, he was in pain. A trip to the Vet and he was diagnosed with pneumonia. They offered to put him on intervenous and keep him overnight, but because no one would be there at night, my wife brought him back home. We were up with him all Friday night and calmed him down a little bit, and Saturday morning took him to another Vet, she opened her clinic just for us. Pepper's lungs were full of fluid, he couldn't breath and was in severe pain... there really was no choice to be made. My wife stayed and held him while the final sedative was given. He will be cremated and buried on our property. You have given us 6570 days of love and companionship and you've had a long and happy life.. Goodbye little friend...We miss you....Thank you for letting me share our story.

My 3-1/2 month old puppy has been diagnosed with pneumonia. She is hospitalized with intravenous (antibiotics) for the last 4 days. She seems to be improving except for her rapid heart rate. Hopefully this too will improve with treatment.
