Respiratory Infection in cat - Clavamox
 
Hi members,

Anyone have experience with Respiratory Infections in cats and Clavamox?

Baci (4 year old neutered sphynx cat) is on Clavamox now (for a respiratory infection that we can easily hear when he gets excited but that the vet could not hear when he was paralyzed with fear in front of her).

He gets 2 pills each day of 62.5mg Clavamox....but the gunk inside his lungs (we think) seems to be taking a long time to clear. He's been on it for a full week and you can hear (sounds a bit phlegmy) that he's still having occasional trouble with easy breathing when he gets excited. When He's settled he's fine. Although less often now, he will still sneeze 15-25 times in a row at least once a day. Carmy loves the mucous and other beautiful substances that are now landing everywhere- -lemme tell ya. :) He's supposed to be on the meds for 3 weeks.

We will likely call the vet in the next day or so but was wondering if members had any advice on this. Thx! :cat:

This we site said URI is airborne and other health cats can get it. I was wondering could your record your cat breathing so the vet could hear that way? I took my last dog to the vet because he has not eaten for two days and he ate for the vet . My vet told he see pets do this all the time , as soon as the pet get to the vet they say "look I am fine I am eating , now can I go home?"

Have you ever used Lysine ? Maybe it would be helpfull for future issues with Baci to build up his immune system? just a thought?? good luck!

It's probably viral, not bacterial and therefore Clavamox will not help.

I would try the Lysine as Winston suggested, but normally viral infections have to run it's course.
