can I give my cat childrens cold medicine until I can get her to a vet? She is sneezing and wheezing.
Type of Animal: cat
Name of Cat: Tattie
Do not give children's cold medicine. Most of this stuff is not proven safe for animals, especially cats. If she is breathing very badly, it is best to get her seen now as respiratory issues are not something to mess around with. If you cannot get into a vet, you can try giving her Zyrtec. The dose is 5 mg (1/2 of a 10 mg tablet) once daily.
I hope that helps!
how about Alavert?
You can try Alavert but it really isn't super effective. The dose is 0.25 mg/lb once a day.
