Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am sorry to hear Reggie is not feeling well. Does he have any type of cough? Is the runny nose clear? Sneezing?
Expert:  Dr. Altman replied 1 year ago.
I am sorry if you are having difficulties with the site There are some home remedies that can help reduce the congestion and give relief1.) The steam of the shower helps loosen the congestion2.) A little honey three times daily can help soothe the lungs3.) If you have a humidifier or nebulizer that would also be wonderful to use in this situationI hope this information makes sense! If the congestion is not resolving, there is progressive lethargy or the nasal discharge is green/ yellow then it would be best to have a veterinary exam to ensure antibiotics are not warranted. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you both!If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
