Cat Lungs Filled with Fluid
I e-mailed before concerning my cat that is in her last stages of mammary cancer. Now the x-rays show it has gone into her chest and her lungs are filled with fluid.
I know it may be the end, but I just have to keep fighting and trying the best I can. The vet basically sent her home to die and said bring her in when you are ready to put her down.
My question is, if I had her lungs tapped how long does that last? My vet said that it would only last 24 hours. I spoke to a friend today that said her dog was aspirated once weekly. If that is the case, I would have it done.
Is there a natural way to aspirate the lungs? Is there an herb or anything that can naturally take the fluid out of her lungs?? I just can't believe that there isn't an herb that can do this.
I just feel so hopeless. She hasn't eaten in days. I gave her the mirtazapine appetite stimulant three cays ago and now that doesn't even work. I am giving her nutri-cal to somewhat supplement her calories, but now she fights and gets out of breath, so I feel guilty giving her that. Please help me.
