Wonder if this might be a birth defect or the result of malnourishment early on.

Mycoplasmosis is diagnosed through bronchoalveolar lavage with sample sent to c/o Matti Kiupel at Michigan State University Pathology lab.
Antibiotics used to treat mycoplasmosis are doxycycline at 10 mg/kg twice a day and Baytril 10 mg/kg 2 times a day for months (Murray, personal communication 8/8/10). Cough suppressants, bronchodilators, and antiinflammatories as needed.
I erroneously misspelled Kevin's surname, it is Farlee not Farley (apologies Kevin).
