On Friday morning I brought him up on the bed and noticed he had very slow laboured heavy breathing, within the hour he was on the vets table where he had an injection that nearly made him pass out as it stessed him and he could not breath enough oxygen in but after a few minutes he recovered.
Any way he is on antibiotic for the next five days and he likes the banana flavour so much that he has it in his home and licks it from the syringe !

He already looks 50% better than yesterday so fingers crossed xxxxx

Thanks everyone for the good wishes, took Rhino back to vets who gave some more honey flavoured anti inflamatory to last three weeks.
Vet said his lungs sounded clearer but it could be a longish process and he might not get full use depending on scar tissue, any way to us he is already back to his old self so maybe he had a previous lung problem before we had him so we are very pleased.

Best £75 we have spent in ages !
