Thank you for all your well-wishes, folks! We're nearing about $1k in vet bills so I also hope this gets resolved soon, for both Tiki's comfort and for my poor bank account!!
Tiki's visit went fairly well today! She is not quite in the clear but the infection pooling in her lungs is lessened by about half. They did warn me that she may have some permanent scarring on her lungs and nasal cavity from the long time she's had this untreated infection, so she may always make some weird respiratory noises, but she IS improving. Not quite the answer we wanted with the pneumonia being so stubborn, but a better answer than no improvement at all. She was given another antibiotic shot as well as more of the meds she's already on, since that seems to be working well for her.
She's also gained half a pound total this week which is a huge improvement on her weight! She's right at 5lbs 4oz which is finally a higher
weight than she was at when I first rescued her (5lbs, 2oz). We're thinking somewhere between 5.5-6lbs is the final adult weight we're shooting for, at this point. She's naturally starting to cut back on some of the food she's eating- still a whole 13oz can plus 1/8lb in Freshpet- so soon it'll be time for me to start cutting back on the calorie intake and get her weight to plateau instead of turning her into a blimp.
Today she was a little spitfire at the vet office which her vet was very happy to see. As said before, with knowing her personality was somewhat subdued due to illness, it's good to see a puppy like her doing better and having fun even if she turns into a little demon in the process
