    My best dog came down with a real serious lung infection, I took him to the vets, he is on strong antibiotics, vet tells me they don't know what caused it, he has a 60% chance of getting better with meds my question is have any of you guys had this problem if so any ideas....?

    My vet said the same thing I could take him to Portland, but if the meds don't work than the chances are not good!

    the vet in Portland is great and will be honest with you, but be ready to part with some serious money if you go that route. Not trying to scare you just being honest it cost me 4 thousand and I still had to have her put down. Just prepare your self if it comes to that
