Yes and Yes, George had mix of pseudomonas and staph. pseudonomas is really tough nut to crack. Luckily for George it clear up on his third round of oral antibiotics. However Staph and White snot is still a problem for George. I nebulize him twice a day with cipro and acetylcysteine (Mucomyst) it is more preventive since as soon as I take him off he gets congested.

As you vet if you can add acetylcysteine to the nebulization it helps break up the snot and allow the antibiotics to fight the infection. Amikacin is great, but it cannot be used long term since I believe it can cause kidney disease with long term use, so you might need to rotate. If add acetylcysteine you might consider giving eye drops since my vet mention it can sting the eyes when nebulized, but it does no damage.

It can take weeks months or even the rest of their lives.

Nebulization is not so bad George will probably have to do it for the rest of his life since he is prone to infections.
