I was just doing some reading about causes of fluid buildup around the lungs. One source said that it is possible for microorganisms can infect the lung and cause fluid build up around the lung and that antibiotics are needed. It said that antibiotics do not penetrate well into the pleural cavity so it's necessary to drain the fluid first before giving antibiotics. It said too that analysis of the fluid can indicate if there's those microorganisms or not. The shot the vet gave my cat today was a combination of Dexamethasone and Duplocillin. Would that work if the problem was an infection caused by this type of microorganism? Would it work for any type of infection in the lungs that could be causing the fluid buildup? Could this type of infection mimic asthma symptoms(croupiness, wheezing,etc)?
