Lilah and Pyothorax

Meet Lilah!

Lilah presented to us with 'Pyothorax', which is the presence of inflammatory fluid (or puss) within the chest cavity. 'Pyothorax' is usually caused by a bacterial infection, which in Lilah's case was a 'Pasteurella Infection', likely caused by inhaling bacteria from her mouth.

Lilah had a chest drain placed to drain as much pus and fluid as possible and will need at least 6 weeks on antibiotics these infections can be life threatening but with treatment she should make a full recovery!

Lilah was discharged and will be back to visit us for a check up on her progress and some cuddles in the coming weeks!
