I have a 9 week old wether. He had a couple weeks of off and on diarreah which I treated with the dimethox just in case. Its finally gone. But the last couple of weeks also I noticed him having a little bit of raspy breathing - mostly noticed after a bottle. I don't hear it in his lungs, mostly his throat. No fever, eating and drinking well, gaining weight, etc. Checked his eyelids and they are pink.

I don't know if I should give him a shot of Nuflor just in case? Or order some Vet RX - maybe its a little cold? No runny nose either. It started when it went from hot to cold, and one of the other ones was the same way, but he's fine now.

If he has no fever, is eating, drinking, playing, running, etc., I would not give him the Nuflor. He is probably sucking his bottle too fast, and getting a little in his windpipe. I would just keep a close eye on him and make sure he continues to act normally.
