Steroids pulmonary oedema

There are a long list of possible conditions which may cause a pleural effusion including: heart failure, protein losing conditions, cancer, infections, hemothorax, chylothorax or other conditions. The type of fluid removed can be analysed to determine the type of fluid and other tests may be taken (like blood test to check protein levels or blood counts etc…); it may be worth visiting another Veterinarian for a second opinion and work up if your current Veterinarian is suggesting euthanasia (which still may be the best option). Pleural effusion may be managed with chest drains and / or diuretics, this would need to be discussed with a Veterinarian regarding suitability of treatment; there are different tests which may be done on the drained fluid, blood, x-rays, echocardiogram and others but still depending on the underlying cause (if one can be found) euthanasia may be in Sheba’s best interest. There are injectable antibiotics, but if the cause isn’t infection the treatment will be ineffective. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM
