Thanks so much for your helpful reply.
I am glad to hear Prince is eating!
I would not give him cipro or any other medications at this time.
Most upper respiratory infections are viral like our human cold.
Antibiotics are only given in certain cases to prevent secondary infections.
You say he licks up the gravy but does not eat much of the food. Are you giving him food with chunks, pieces or shreds? If so, try smooth pate` foods instead.
Now excessive thirst and urinating can be a symptom of diabetes.
here are two Vets that offer a free first visit:
You can use l-lycine chews:
Run a hot shower to make a steam room and take him in for ten minute intervals to break up congestion.
Use little noses pediatric nose drops if his nose is stuffy.
Give him one quarter of a tsp of honey every 4 hours to sooth his throat.
Give him one tsp a day of either tuna, salmon or sardine oil.
Please let me know how Prince is doing. If you have more questions just press reply and I will be here for you.
