Default Pneumonia in left lung

I noticed my hedgie was sneezing a lot and had started wheezing so I brought him to an emergency vet since my regular vet didn't have any appointments available until Thursday. Liam was sedated so the doctor could do xrays on his chest and heart. It turns out he had pneumonia specifically in his left lung due to water getting inside his nose. I'm extremely worried and the doctor has since put him on a nebulizer and will soon give him 3 antibiotical injections along with baytril to give him at home for 10 days. I just wanted to clarify if this was the correct procedure to treat a hedgehog with pneumonia.

Sounds right to me. Good luck, I hope Liam feels better soon! Pneumonia is nasty for little hedgies.
