Maybe: RSV is the common designation for a virus that causes a wheezy bronchitis at that age. Any kid with the disorder should be taking enough fluids to wet every 8 hrs or more or they may need to be hospitalized for IV fluids because of dehydration. I would certainly have her re-checked if she is not wetting more often.

Doctor can recheck: A child with bronchiolitis who is doing ok can be treated at home. One who is not doing so well may need hospitalization and oxygen therapy. If she seems not improving, or seems working harder to breathe, she may need to be seen by her pediatrician or the ER again. Sometimes, kids need to be admitted to the hospital for a couple of days.

Emergency Department: She is in respiratory distress and may need oxygen, please see the Emergency department for further management . Most viral illnesses resolve within two weeks. She may also need iv hydration. Please provide clear liquids, treat fever and see a physician right away.
