This is my first post and I wish it could have been on a happier note. I have three kittens that for about two weeks have been sick. It started out as an eye infection and has progressed in to a chest cold. They do alot of sneezing and even more coughing. The newest problem is one of the kittens has a thick nasal discharge that is causing my little kisses to stray away from his food. He has lost some weight so every day I clear his nose the best that I can and give him his special canned food away from the others. I am looking for some help from other cat lovers. I have taken kisses to the vet twice now. Once was an emergency trip that consisted of him needing IV fluids, an antibiotic shot and oral antibiotics. I have medicated all of my babies so they do not keep passing the illness between them. Here is a list of medicines they have been on: the first was tetracycline, the second lincocin aquadrops along with afrin nasal drops. None of the medicines have stopped the cough which is very wet sounding. Over the phone the vet said it was probably a secondary pneumonia. Are any of the symptoms common to that and what else can I do to help out a little more at home. I would appreciate any help. BTW the kittens have been wormed.
