It is hard to detect that it is a lung infection (pneumonia) that your kitten, puppy, yearling, or piglets are sick with.
Is a little easier to detect when a adult animal has it.
However if not sure, still use these remedies to protect from secondary infections, and other things to watch out for is if they are not doing well, not eating well, getting lethargic, or eve breathing normally or that well, then use this formula as soon as possible to either prevent secondary infection to the lungs or treat the infections of the lungs. If not treated it is fatal for infant animals or the elderly. This unique and effective formula is assisting all conditions of acute or chronic ... pneumonia, mycoplasma infection, pleurisy symptoms, tuberculinum conditions, loss of appetite, clears the lungs from congestion; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); respiratory discomfort; soreness in chest; emphysema; bronchitis; pneumonia; asthma; coughs.
Merck Veterinary Manual (pps 760-761) says that 40-45% of chronic, feline upper respiratory diseases are caused by Rhino virus, Herpes virus, Calci virus, Chlamydia or Mycoplasma. In other words, there are diverse causes of cat-lung problems.
Other signs associated with pneumocystosis include: Coughing, Vomiting, Diarrhea, Gradual weight loss, Physical wasting with loss of weight and muscle mass (cachexia)
There are (3) three types of pneumonia often seen in dogs, however less often in cats (more in kittens). The fourth (4) one "Parasitic pneumonia" is less common.
Aspiration pneumonia (e.g. infants milk inhalant)
Valley Fever - fungal infection
Parasitic pneumonia (roundworm in lungs)
1. Aspiration pneumonia, also called inhalation pneumonia, means the lungs have become inflamed and infected as the result of breathing in a foreign substance like vomit, regurgitated gastric acid, or food. The condition is more often seen in dogs than cats, and in particular, newborn puppies. There are a number of other causes of aspiration pneumonia, including certain diseases, chronic vomiting or regurgitation, during induction of anesthesia, inhaling a caustic chemical, and even during administration of liquid drug medicine to a pet.
*Symptoms of aspiration pneumonia include difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, coughing, rapid breathing, an increased heart rate, loss of appetite and lethargy. Aspiration pneumonia is a life-threatening condition. Causing "fading syndrome" ** Must act straight away and express shipping.
2. Bacterial pneumonia is seen most frequently in immune compromised individuals. e.g. pneumonic kittens - causing "fading syndrome"
It is caused by a pathogen, and there are several organisms that can result in infection. Symptoms include cough, fever, breathing difficulties, loss of appetite, weight loss and lethargy, bacterial bronchopneumonia usually presents with a cough, tachypnoea, dyspnoea, nasal discharge, fever and depression. Auscultation may reveal increased lung sounds, crackles, wheezes, and silent areas.
3. Fungal pneumonia is the result of a deep fungal lung infection, sometimes called a Mycotic infection. Symptoms include: complete loss of appetite, weight loss, fever, coughing, difficulty breathing, eye problems. Unfortunately, many pets are unresponsive to fungal pneumonia when given conventional drug medication. Herbal anti fungal drops and nosodes are best used for these conditions. Unfortunately it would be hard to diagnosed if it is fungal or bacterial infection. However no harm done if you combine the natural medicines to be safe. The herb Artemisinin (Sweet Annie) to prevent an often fatal type of lung infection called pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) that is caused by a fungus. Refer to: HAMPL Fungal herbal formulas.
4. Parasitic pneumonia: Lungworm (Aelurostrongylus abstrusus or A. abstrusus - roundworm) is probably the most common lungworm of cats, although C. aerophilia infection may also occur. The infection of this roundworm is gained by eating infected slugs or snails (the intermediate host), or infected rodents, lizards or birds (the transport hosts). They are small parasites (males 7 mm, females 10 mm), deeply embedded in the lung tissues. Lung Nematodes worms (Roundworms or Threadworms), but heavy infestations may produce the following symptoms: Dry coughing, Wheezing, Dyspnea (shortness of breath), especially upon exertion, Lethargy and exercise intolerance, Anorexia, Fever. Symptoms are typically noticed in younger cats.
* If any of these symptoms look familiar we suggest to also use in conjunction with HAMPL ParaEx49 formula 50ml. Affected cats may present with a chronic cough, with associated crackles and wheezes.
Refer to: HAMPL ParaExpel 049 (parasitic formula)
Perhaps the most important consideration of the lungworm (A. abstrusus) infection is its differentiation from chronic broncho pulmonary disease, particularly ‘feline asthma’.
PLEASE NOTE: Sometimes symptoms are a combination of fever infection, chest infection with coughing - this could also be Asthma. * See AN091 HAMPL AsthmaLung formulas.

Medicinal Herbal Actions
Sweet Annie (artemisia annus) - this herb is also often used for Malaria and Babesia lyme infections.The herb Artemisinin (Sweet Annie) to prevent an often fatal type of lung infection called pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) that is caused by a fungus.
Usnea Barb - antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, immuno-stimulating, immuno-regulator, demulcent, anti-tumor, expectorant, muscle relaxant
Cryptolepsis - bacterial, systemic infection (whole body)
Elderberries - has traditionally been used to relieve fever, symptoms of respiratory catarrh and mucous congestion. Immune system boost, coughs, colds, flu, bacterial infections, viral infections, tonsilitis antioxidant, improve vision, boost the immune system, and tonsillitis.
Mullein - Mycoplasma pneumonia is especially prevalent in children and young adults, being highly contagious and transmitted through coughing and sneezing. Although there may not be a cure for this strain of pneumonia, the herb mullein may bring relief from many symptoms. Mullein acts as an expectorant, assisting in breaking up congestion in the lungs and airways, and reduces inflammation, says New Mexico State University. The University adds that the herb soothes irritating coughing and other respiratory conditions related to pneumonia, such as asthma.
Andrographis - is also used for a wide assortment of other conditions. It is used for digestive complaints including diarrhea, constipation, intestinal gas, colic, and stomach pain; for liver conditions including an enlarged liver, jaundice, and liver damage due to medications; for infections including leprosy, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, syphilis, malaria, cholera, leptospirosis, rabies, sinusitis, and HIV/AIDS; and for skin conditions including wounds, ulcers and itchiness.
Goldenseal - Goldenseal has been shown in the research to be both antibiotic and antiviral. Excellent results for treating Pneumonia conditions. It is possible that berberine (a major component of goldenseal) also kills a wide range of other types of germs in test tubes, such as those that cause candida (yeast) infections and parasites such as tapeworms and Giardia. Berberine may also activate white blood cells, making them better at fighting infection and strengthening the immune system.
Cat's Claw (toa free) - can eliminate mycoplasma infection. Shown to raise DD57 white blood cell counts. It will modulate the immune system, raising it where appropriate and lowering overactive (auto immune) responses where necessary. The POAs in Cat's Claw work by supporting the white blood cells (WBC). These are the cells that help with immunity. One of the functions of the WBC is to gobble up, and eliminate bacteria and viruses. POA does this by increasing the production of interleukin by the WBC. POAs also help a type of cell called B cells. B cells create antibodies against one type of virus or bacteria. Cat's Claw also helps the body create more T cells. T cells attack cancer cells and also AIDS viruses found in the blood stream.
*For humans or other - Mullein herb can be prepared as a tea by boiling 1 to 2 tsp. of dried herb in 2 cups water for 10 to 15 minutes. Strain, cool and drink three to four times daily for relief.Mullein has been traditionally used to remedy bronchitis, asthma, croup, whooping cough, pneumonia, asthma and tuberculosis.The study found that mullein has anti-bacterial activity against Klebsiella pneumonia, E. coli, and Staphylococcus aureus and epidermidis -- two types of bacteria found in the lungs and on skin.
** How to give the "HERBAL MIXTURE" to a small pet or feline**
Felines / Toy Dog / Rabbit: add 20 drops of a herbal formula (i.e. HAMPL Herbal Congestion) in say a Egg Cup ( approx 15ml - 20ml) fill with hot water. (as to dissolve alcohol content of the herb extract) let cool.
Then add a pinch of Zinc Picolinate powder from capsules (helps with loss of smell, immunity). We also add magnesium mineral liquid of several drops (ReMag) and several drops of the ReMyte (mineral solution) in some liquid. Using a small oral syringe, we draw up the liquid and gently in side of mouth squirt 1/4 ml or less, repeat until 1 ml is taken. Or we mix 1 - 2ml of this into meals, depending if our pet is eating well or not. We may find initially we have to oral syringe this, but as appetite and wellness strengthens they eat with vigor and therefore less difficult to mix into each meal. If you pet drinks milk, avoid full dairy and use goats milk water down a bit. DOUBLE THE AMOUNT FOR LARGER PETS. * You can also add the other suggest supplements to this mixture.
