ive taken my kitten to the vet for anti-biotics for her cold, ive only had her for 2 days and shes been on meds for 1 1/2. Shes still not acting any better, she wont eat or drink, though they gave me a calorie gel since she is small for her age. How long should i wait before taking her back if shes not getting better. i read this may not go away, should i worry??

Antibiotics can take 3-5 days to show effect. If you are getting to day 4 and there is no improvement, call the vet!!!!! Or if the symptoms suddenly get worse!!!!!

Meds take more than 2 days. Wait about 4 days and see if she is better. She also needs to EAT EAT EAT. Try warm canned cat food, warm tuna whatever. Cats with colds need nutrients in addition to meds. These viruses also take TIME to run their course and she may need different or more meds after you finish these.

3 to 4 days for the med. to take effect but you need to force fluids with a syringe or go to wal mart and buy a kitten bottle they are only .97cents. also kitten formula is great!!

Cats live thru their noses. If she can't smell her food she may not eat it. Try serving her something warmed up. To get her to drink, do not discard the water from the can of water-packed people tuna. Put it in a bowl and serve to cat. It''s sort of a tuna flavored Kool Aid for cats. Sounds disgusting to me and maybe you but we are not cats.

Yeah, he would be high quality. Cats are daft and that i each so often locate my cats snoozing interior the silliest places. with the aid of fact he's youthful he's no longer probably afflicted, yet you will locate he likes his convenience as he gets older. My cats sleep in baskets under my mattress with the aid of fact it is dark and heat there! each so often however they're going to easily sleep contained in the direction of the room and that i continually think of it is stupid whilst they have have been given high quality heat baskets! They do look to love blankets however. have you ever tried a blanket on the tip of your mattress. My cats love snoozing close to us on the mattress with the aid of fact i think of they like the warmth temperature given off my people.

it can take a few days for the antibiotics to kick in, I would say after a week and she isn't better take her back for a recheck.
