Dr. Loretta,My 10 year old pot belly is severely congestion,

Customer Question

Hi Dr. Loretta,
My 10 year old pot belly is severely congestion, coughing, wheezing and experiencing bloody discharge from his nose. All symptoms started today and is emergency doctor is out of town. What can I do to help him until a vet can see him? How urgent is this? What could it be? I read online that I should give him antibiotics if I have some. I have amoxicillin, penicillin and doxycycline, what do you think?

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
Are his gums pink or pale/white?
Is the discharge from one nostril or both?
Any green/yellow/snotty discharge with the blood?
How much blood is present?
