Pneumonia

Buddy was diagnosed with pneumonia and has gone through a course of doggy antibiotics and 3 courses of human antibiotics.  The right lung is full of fluid. He would get better, then be energetic and get worse.   It was suggested that he may not have pneumonia but CHF.  Is there anything to do to help him.  The vet doesn't seem to have any suggestions.  Would a diuretic help?  He's starting to not eat now.

I am so sorry about your dog!  

Unfortunately, there are few effective treatments in traditional veterinary medicine for lung cancer.  

If you are interested in an herbal anticancer protocol please post again.  The holistic anti-cancer treatment may help to prolong good quality of life, but of course there are no guarantees.

Took Buddy to a different vet.  Turns out it's not pneumonia.  He has lung cancer.
