So our oldest cat (3 years) caught an upper respiratory infection from our kitten, the kitten has already responded well to antibiotics. We took the oldest one to the vet. The vet gave her some injections to bring down her fever and intiate her treatment for an upper resp. infection, forced subcutanously a lg amt of IV fluid into her and told us to try to get her to eat and drink and he sent us home with Tolfedine and Orbex for treatment. We've been able to get her to drink small amounts of tuna water, she eat a few of her tempations treats, and a small amount of tuna. I have been pretty much forcing water into her via a syringe as much as I can as it is hot out now. She has perked up a bit, and she's not sneezing as much but getting her to eat and drink is like pulling teeth. Any ideas? We really want to be able to treat her at home as much as possible as further treatment at the vet is going to be extremley costly, and we don't have pet insurance.
