With no mucous discharge or attempts to expel anything, and the fact that she is feeding well, my guess is that the problems stem from the severe dehydration. The lung and throat tissue could just be irritated from the severe dehydration making it difficult to breath. It is also possible there is a tissue infection in the throat as well, but I would think that an infection in the throat of much degree would keep her from feeding. Weight gain is obviously a good sign, and I would keep the humidity in the 75 to 80% range, but definitely raise the temps and make sure your substrate temps and air temps are at least 85 F. Temps in the 70's will inhibit the effectiveness of her immune system. I would be curious if your vet feels further antibiotic treatment is necessary, and I would also be interested to hear Ianís thoughts as well. Please keep us posted.
