Veterinarian101 :

Hi,

Veterinarian101 :

Has Charlie been sneezing at all?

Veterinarian101 :

Is he still eating ok?

Customer : No he hasn't eaten not that I've seen. And yes he is snwezing
Veterinarian101 :

Are his eyes weepy at all?

Veterinarian101 :

How long has he been unwell?

Customer : Not really weepy. Yesterday
Veterinarian101 :

Ok.

Veterinarian101 :

There are a couple of conditions that can cause this runny nose.

Veterinarian101 :

1. A respiratory tract infection - this commonly makes them unwell and they do not eat. The infection is often caused by a nasty bacteria called Pastuerella which is difficult to treat/cure.

Veterinarian101 :

2. a tooth problem causing and abscess in the tooth and this infects the sinuses.

Veterinarian101 :

3. A blocked and infected tear duct - although this can be related to no. 2.

Customer : Ok. Antibiotic is usually the treatment for ant of these
Veterinarian101 :

Yes or removal of the affected tooth. The big concern is that he is not eating. When this happens they get a condition called gut stasis.

Veterinarian101 :

This is where the gut stops moving and can cause problems.

Veterinarian101 :

You need to get him eating.

Customer : Oh. No vets are open till Monday what should 8
Veterinarian101 :

Try some pumpkin baby food mash.

Customer : No vets are open till Monday what should I Di
Veterinarian101 :

How many hours until they are open? I am in a different time zone.

Customer : Ok. If I can't find baby good can I use canned pumpkin
Veterinarian101 :

You can try but you obviously need to mash it up and try and syringe it in.

Veterinarian101 :

If there is a pet shop nearby you can try to get some Oxbow Critical Care and feed that to him.

Customer : Ok. Will a medicine one woek

We seem to be having trouble with the chat. Yes a child syringe will work well. You may need to cut the tip off so the pumpkin fits through easier.

Yes it could be contagious if it is Pasteurella so maybe good to separate until you see your vet.

  • I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there. Alice H. Jacksonville, Fl.
