Sometimes it has been a URI and required Meds, other times it was caused by their environment and went away once we rectified the problem (build up of ammonia and poor ventilation).
We even had the situation of taking one of our girls to the vet and her symptoms clearing up so the vet didn't see them and said she was fine but then a few days later they came back.
We also had one girl who, when we got her used to sneeze a lot and she has been on meds for breathing issues twice now in the last 4 months.
A vet might be able to hear something during an exam that you cant hear but what we did was videoed the breathing issues so we could show them the video if the symptoms disappeared by the time we got to the vet.
Its good that he is eating and active but have you noticed any other symptoms or any changes in behaviour. With our 3 it is usually a bad sign if they dont run off when we try to pick them up, although they are gradually getting better in that regard.
Other things to look out for are crusty eyes and nasal discharge.
What do you use for bedding and how frequently is it changed/cleaned? Any other possible causes of allergies/irritants? Smoke? Dust? Pollen?
Any weight loss?
As for weight I haven’t weighed him. I know he has gained since we took over ownership. When we got him you could easily feel his back bone and ribs and you can’t anymore. I was just reading about checking this weekly. Do you use a specific scale or just one for people?
Thank you for the info!!
