Fluid in the Lungs in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment 

 

The type of treatment will be dependent upon the severity of the medical condition. Oxygen may be used to help the animal to breathe, while certain fluids may be administered to aid in the flow of fluids within the dog's body.

 

Rest is recommended to assist in the dog's recovery time. Also, diuretics have proven effective at reducing edema, as they work to force excess water and fluids out of the animal's body.

 

Living and Management 

 

This is a condition that has a high recurrence rate, so ongoing management and observation is often recommended and required.

 

Prevention 

 

Unfortunately, there are currently no preventive measures for pulmonary edema.
