Rhinotracheitis - personal experiences
Rhinotracheitis experience by - Connie

I had purchsed 2 kittens from a store . They had previously been in a foster home. One of the kittens developed symptoms of coughing, nose discharge, and difficyulty breathing. I have already put alot of money in antibiotics, etc, but he just doesn't seem to be getting well. Now the other kitten is developing the same symptoms. I am afraid our 21 year old cat and dog might get this also. I found out the kitten had been on antibiotics while in the foster home. I think this kitten was not completely well when the foster home took them both to the store to be sold. The foster home is trying to say the kitten got sick at the store. We really love these kittens but it is getting very hard financially and hard to see them suffer. Where should we go from here.

I am a foster home for abandoned, abuse, and homeless kittens, cats, and some time a dog or two. As a foster home we do all we can for the animals, but the herpus virus sometime does not show up until an animals is in a new home. (stress related). I use in my home Acidophilus and L-lysine to help build a better immune system. And I am sure your Vet will tell you to vaccinate and feed your pet good food to stay healthy.I also agree with that. I have had kittens that look great only to find out when they were adopted they got sick after leaving my home. I am dealing with this virus now and I am using Vitamins C, L-lysine and Acidophilus on a few of my animals and having some good result. I am also working with my Vet with eye medication and antibiotic. Kittens especially 6 week and up to 9 week are the hardest because it cam ecome on suddenly and take it life in a short time. The older it is the more likely you can arrest it but never cure it.
