Hello. This is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.

I would not be surprised if Poppy has a bit of an upper respiratory infection from the stress of travel & adjusting to a new environment. Initiating a 5 day course of Uniprim would probably be prudent, but do watch for any exacerbation of signs, including an increase in the discharge, swelling in the throat area, lethargy, cough &/or loss of appetite.

I hope this makes sense & provides you the information you were seeking. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thank you.
