Poor Corkscrew didn't have a good day today. He's been sneezing the last few days and has been really congested. This morning he was hiding under the bed since he wasn't feeling very well, I tried to get him out but he refused to come out. So I had to move the bed and grab him and put him in the carrier. He didn't have too much fun at the vet, however he did seem to enjoy that they now have ear thermometers and they didn't have to stick anything up his bum. He weighs 13 lbs now! But anyways, the vet said it would be hard to tell if it's an infection or allergies without running tests on him. He recommened treating him for both and then if he doesn't get better we will run tests on him. They gave him an antibiotic shot and sent me home with some amoxil, a vetalog pill and NeoPolybac for his eyes since they were really swollen. On the way home he peed in the carrier, so when we got home I had to clean him off and he was really upset about that, he hissed at me. It's been a couple of hours since we went to the vet and he seems to be breathing much easier, so hopefully he will have a quick recovery.
