PNEUMONIA -resistant to antibiotics

hello, my 11 years old dog has broncho-pneumonia.It's suspected to be MYCOTIC pneumonia . (I' m waiting for the results from the lab).
he has been coughing sparingly , since autumn, I treated him first with vit C and cough syrup(natural) but it got worst. The vet first said it's nothing at the lungs, treated him with doxicicline (14 days, the pills were put in the food, don't know if the dog took them all) . then again, another check-up, 5 injection with CTP (antibiotics and cortizone). last time he had a injection with Convenia , wich 'kills' pretty much everything (including good bacteria... After that it got worst then ever.
He coughs very bad, for minutes, it seem s exhausting and painful; he can't bark anymore, he has hoarsness, wheezing, hissing etc...When he coughs he seems to choak sometimes, and he tries to expectorates...his nose runs sometimes, and from the eyes gets some yellowish substance. He expectorates someting white (milk colour), frosty but with transparent mucus (hard to get it washed away from the floor with the water hose -it seems to be gluey or elastic ..) and it has blood, bright red in the expectoration.
please somebody help, I give him now KALIUM PHOSPHORICUM D6 , SEVERAL TIMES A DAY, IN WATER (for 3 days, it seems to be a little improvement but I'm not sure ) also ACC, licorice, probiotics, echinaceea and extracts form hornbeam and currant buds.And a syrup wtih propolis, honey and other plants
please help!!!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him Nux Vomica 30c thrice a day for few days and report back.

thank you for your quick reply(it was Easter and I read it only today). I must tell you first that I DID see improvements, (dont think it was because of the antibiotics...I ve just finished that treatmeant), but after Kalium Phos D6 and all the plants I gave him , today he managed to BARK (after a long time!) that makes him cough but he kept on barking and coughing...he was more alert and playfull, he coughs more seldom and different (not so never-ending, exhausting cough.. and it has a more lower tone, doesnț sound as there was a saw in his throat). And I didnt see that expectoration with blood.I walked him a lot these days, it seems to improve his condition (he doesnt cough when I walk him, only when he walks too fast). I also noticed that he is a little more hungry (he eats very well and he doesnt cough after eating, even if when I give him forceful pills or water- with remedies- with a seringe he always start to cough).
please tell me if i should continue the treatment with Kalium phos. I also gave him once today Spongia tosta (7ch) but I m not sure its suited for him (I know its for dry cough without expectoration..)
thank you

If he is eating well and doesn't have blood in his expectoration you need not give him any remedy for the time being.

he is coughing for minutes, he is in pain he looks at me with a begging look in his eyes. he can't bark at all, his eyes are watery . he coughs for minutes and can' t start eating because of that (I gave him rice bioled in veal-bones -soup and I think he doesn' like it very much, he left food untouched couple of times)) he has this 'wheezing' and other nioses in his respiratory tract. he is not ok. On a romanain forum somebody suggested Causticum 9 ch, 1 weeek. don'nt know if he has 'burning' sensation , is impossible to get a dog describe his simptoms!!!

i think few doses of phos 200 may work. If there is no relief few doses of calc carb 200 may be given. few means not more than 5 at a gap of 12 hrs.
