When should I take my 15 week old Sphynx kitten that was diagnosed with Upper Respitory Infection ba

He has been on Amoxi-drops for 2 weeks, vitamins and Lysine 500mg per day. He play he eats alot and seem like he feels fine. The only time I noticed him not eating was the day after I brought him home but just one day. He still sneezes and blow snot out his nose and his nose sounds stuffy. But, besides that he acts fine. The breeder I bought him from just cant believe he has an Upper Resp. infection. Is there a chance it could be something else? Thank You.

    I had the same problem when I brought my purebred home from the breeder. I have a very good vet doctor who reassured me that URI is common is new kittens who transfer to new homes. They are under a lot of stress due to all of the changes. I did not need to take Lily back to the vet after her medicine treatment. If the URI still exists or returns again, the vet should be contacted immediately. Good luck.

    You may want to call the vet and just give them an update if he is still sneezing and has a runny nose. His symptoms sound like classic URI symptoms. I had a very severe URI when I was 7 weeks old. I eventually ended up on 2 antibiotics and lysine pase all at the same time I was so sick. Glad he is feeling better and congrats on your new kitten!
