I will frequently suggest using a combination of an antihistamine/decongestant and occasionally an intranasal spray for those patients that are cooperative in order to treat minor upper respiratory symptoms for no longer than seventy-two hours.

There are many over the counter preparations that would work well; speak with your veterinarian about those medications,that are appropriate for your pet.

More serious conditions that are of longer duration and greater severity need a firm diagnosis to treat intelligently and effectively.
