I experienced URI for the first time. Two nights ago, Justin had an attack. It was the most horrid gasping, wheezing, whistling sound. Not much sneezing and no poryphin around nose or eyes. Just horrid breathing attacks. I did the steamy hot bathroom thing, this stressed him out even more. I gave chocolate drops. The next morning his wheezing was worse. He was not eating, playing and not himself at all. I hit the phone list and contacted every vet. To find an after hours vet in SA is like gold. But, I found one willing to see him, at a hefty price. I didn't care, whatever it cost. She prescribed Enrovet antibiotics and gave me Doxy. But told me to hold off the doxy and only give the doxy if he doesn't respond within two/three days of being on the Enrovet. She advised to put Rascal on the same treatment as he will most likely get it too. I have done this. lol can see that they have lost weight. They both not eating so well. I have been spoon feeding yogurt and baby food. Today, they seem abit better. Abit more lively and ate a little of their food. My question is: I thought URI's are associated with lots of sneezing and poryphin? Justin only had wheezing, gasping and whistling sounds? I'm so new to this....I always hear of Batryil. We don't have this in SA the vet said.
