Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not improve rapidly.

Administer all prescribed medication as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet. Some antibiotics can cause nausea, decreased appetite and diarrhea. If your pet experiences these symptoms while receiving antibiotics, notify your veterinarian. An alternate antibiotic may be available.

Exercise restriction is appropriate for a pet recovering from pneumonia because lung capacity is diminished and your pet will tire easily if he attempts to exercise. If your pet has pneumonia, your veterinarian will likely set up a date for repeating chest X-rays after antibiotic administration is complete to ensure the pneumonia has resolved completely.
