Dog Pneumonia Information & Overview
If your dog has been diagnosed with any form of pneumonia you will certainly want to deal with the issue immediately; no time to waste. Depending on the severity of the problem, the prognosis could vary from ‘fairly good’ to ‘very bad’, or occasionally to ‘hopeless’; many folks have found us after receiving a hopeless prognosis. Whether it is bacterial, viral or due to aspiration, pneumonia is a condition that is best dealt with from multiple angles. The NZYMES® Healthy Respiratory Program provides a powerful two-pronged approach to help your pet not only overcome the condition but strengthen the immune system. See Nzymes Respiratory Program Video Instructions.
The Ox-E-Drops are utilized internally, as dietary supplement, as well as being directed to the main affected bronchial and lung areas with vaporizer delivery to those areas to provide direct help where it can be most effective. Secondarily, the Nzymes® Antioxidant Treats provide serious nutritional support that helps the body perform better is most every way, especially immune function; wherein, a better performing immune system can further speed recovery – resulting in most pets breathing easier in 2-4 days. More stubborn cases can take longer. One customer reported a case of kennel-cough so serious that the vet had basically given up and delivered bad news to the owner. This is when potential customers usually find NZYMES. In this case, with the help of the Respiratory Program, and the use of a small closet (no covered kennel available), the customer reported the dog all clear of the symptoms after 11 days. This is likely the most stubborn respiratory case we’ve heard of.

What is Bacterial Dog Pneumonia?
Any disease or condition that affects the respiratory tract can predispose a dog to developing bacterial pneumonia.
Bacterial pneumonia is a condition where the airway, the lungs, and air sacs (alveoli) become filled with fluids and inflammatory cells as a response to disease causing bacteria. It can lead to two secondary conditions: sepsis and hypoxemia.
Sepsis is the condition where the bacteria has systematically infected the dog’s blood stream with toxic and pus forming pathogens. Hypoxemia is a condition when the oxygen levels in the blood stream drop to severely low levels.
What are the causes of Bacterial Pneumonia in Dogs?
Bacterial pneumonia in dogs is due to the Streptococcus Zooepidemicus and Bordetella Bronchiseptica bacteria. Other anaerobic bacteria (capable of thriving in absence of oxygen) are also to blame.
What are the symptoms of Bacterial Pneumonia in Dogs?
The symptoms of bacterial dog pneumonia include continuous nasal discharge, coughing, difficulty in breathing, fever, lack of appetite, and consequent weight loss and sluggishness.
What is Aspiration Dog Pneumonia?
Inhalation/aspiration pneumonia is a condition when the lungs become inflamed due to inhalation of foreign matter.
What are the causes of Aspiration Pneumonia in Dogs?
It is normally a result of difficulty in swallowing food and regurgitation of gastric acid into the airway. Aspiration pneumonia can also be caused due to neuromuscular disorders such as problems with or paralysis of esophagus, and dysfunctional lungs.
