She is wheezing. I can hear her from across the room. It breaks my heart to hear her. I am struggling with the question "quality of life v. continued medical treatment." Between the CC feedings (which she hates), the medications, the wheezing... at what point does my poor Oreo deserve peace. I guess I am just looking for support from those that have and love these little creatures. I just want the best for her. If I thought she would be all better I wouldn't be struggling, but the vet believes that the Azithromycin is the last medication line of defense and its not helping. She's still interacting wth me, still eating (although less than usual)..... I just don't know when enough is enough for her. I am just so sad for my Oreo and for me. I wonder is she happy, how can she be if she's wheezing and trying to breathe? I ordered a nebulizer and am getting the saline today to start using that for her, but is that really going to give her any long term relief.
Sorry if I'm rambling... I just don't know what to do. My favorite exotics vet is out until Monday, so if I take her to the vet anytime this weekend we'll see someone that isn't familiar with Oreo, and I don't want to do that but know I'll have to if the wheezing gets worse.

A nebulized steroid might also help, especially if there's inflammation in the lungs causing the wheezing.
