Learn more about bronchopneumonia below.
Pneumonia is a common disease that affects dogs and cats stemming from either bacterial, viral, or fungal infections of the lungs. Bronchoscopies help collect fluid from the lungs to determine if an infection is present. This assists our veterinarians in selecting the most appropriate and effective antibiotic case by case. If untreated, pneumonia can be life-threatening, but appropriate antibiotic therapy can lead to a quick and simple recovery.
