Customer Question
My 2mo old kitten...

My 2mo old kitten has a cold. I have kept her eyes and nose clean, keeping her warm and even sat in the bathroom with a hot shower running. Is there anything else I can do

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the kitten's name?

Turtle

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

I just brought her home from the shelter last Thursday

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I like the shower idea

Ten minutes three times a day

You can also put neo-synephrine in alternating nostrils every 12 hours

And buy some L-Lysine (nutrition store) and put 100,0 mg into food twice daily- this is anti-viral

I think you will see a big improvement!

Also want to warm up meat based baby foods and give no salt chicken broth

Okay?

Paul
