Dr. BJ Hughes :

HI there -- Welcome to Just Answer.

Dr. BJ Hughes :

Zeniquin is a ood broad spectrum antibiotic that would be given for skin or respiratory infection.

Dr. BJ Hughes :

There would truly not be an improvement by adding clavamox or antirobe to the regimne.

Dr. BJ Hughes :

(regimen)

Dr. BJ Hughes :

Often upper respiratory infections are caused by viruses -- with antibiotics used to prevent or treat secondary bacterial infection.

Dr. BJ Hughes :

Most respiratory infections pass in 7-14 days -- and the single biggest thing to watch and monitor is eating and drinking. Often a cat that is uanble to smell food will decrease or stop eating.

Dr. BJ Hughes :

So be sure your cat is eating -- and if true nasal congestion is preventing this or affecting him -- then a call should be made to your vet. Your cat may be scheduled to come off the antibiotics before the respiratory infection is cleared -- so your vet may choose to change antibitotics or continue the Zeniquin longer.
