sorry to hear yours are honking as well - did yours stop after a bit or did it require a vet visit?It appears to be the season for it, two of mine started doing it out of the blue this time last week and neither have ever had so much as a runny nose for the 4 years I've had them! Might not hurt to give a dose of loxicom if you have any on hand as it's an anti inflammatory and might reduce swellig in the nasal passages.
They’ve been for a few URI’s before and always been given baytril, I don’t blame him for overreacting it must be disgusting! If I asked for sulfatrim do you think they’d prescribe that instead? I’ve never tried Ribena, they’ve always told me to just add some water to dilute it a little bit. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts xThey will probably give him Sulfatrim as it's better for respiratory infections and doesn't taste quite so horrible! It's also only administered once a day so keeps the fighting with them to take it to a minimum . Have you tried mixing their syringed meds with a little Ribena or similar to take away the yucky taste?
Will be thinking about you tomorrow, try not to worry too much -- could even just be a tickly hay seed or dust up the nose!
I’ve been lucky with my boys and baytril so far, Bruno hasn’t lost his appetite or anything when he’s had it, Bruno’s ever had it for honking as well. I did give him some loxicom and he did the normal kicking flailing and biting mummy, his first thought is to chew my face, thanks Bruno I’ll definitely enquire about the sulfatrim xIt never hurts to advocate for your piggy -- it is absolutely the norm to be given sulfatrim/septrin as first line treatment for URI these days. You could always say you are worried about the effect of Baytril on gut function and mention it's a struggle to administer due to the taste? If you're happy with Baytril ignore the above btw, he's your little chap and you know him best!
