8 Month-old FS Domestic Shorthair


When presented for a nail trim, the owner mentioned the patient had been breathing rapidly for the last few days.  The respiratory rate on presentation was 64 and was characterized by tachypnea, not dyspnea. There were no other abnormalities.
Opposite lateral projections and a DV projection of the thorax were acquired because of the tachypnea.
Questions for discussion after reviewing images:
What are the prioritized differential diagnoses based on the survey radiographs.
What are the recommendations regarding either further imaging/diagnostics or therapy, based on the survey radiographs?
