Does this site cost money to get an answer?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the cat?

My son captured a cat that had been neglected and hadduct tape wrapped around its neck. He has fleas, which I have treated and now he has started hacking and sounds VERY congested. He is about 9 pounds. I had Orbax on hand and have been giving him .5 ml bid. However I also have unreconstituted Cephalexin 250 mg

Veterinarian's Assistant: Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the cat's name?

I got it from my vet.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?

It Is eating and drinking and using the litter box well. He is sequestered from my other cats in my son's hunting dogs travel kennel. He has no name He is a rescued discarded cat
