    My new little guy still has his cold(snotty nose) and is staarting to cough a little more. When he coughs it smells so bad :GAAH: I am giving him 1cc of pen two times a day. for about 3 days so far. Any other ideas for over the holiday time as vets are not open?

    Does he sound nasty in his chest? How does the cough smell bad? Like cud? Or something else?

    Try some vet RX in his nose. Or a dab of vicks on his nose if you have it.

    Is his temp still normal?

    temp should be between 101 -104 I like to use a digital as it is a faster read (they dont like their temp being taken, yes you do it rectally).


    give the pen for at least 5 days and up to 10 with 7 days being average.

    how is he acting otherwise?
