This is to demonstrate how we treat a cat
with a cold or upper respiratory infection. The first thing that’s always needed with
a patient that’s sick of any type of disease, is a good physical exam. So we use our instruments
to look them over, we get their temperatures to make sure they don’t have a fever, and
try to find out what the problem is. Cats with colds or upper respiratory infections,
typically have nasal discharge, or typically have ocular or eye discharge, and also may
or may not be eating really well, and very commonly they’re sneezing and, or coughing.
And, so what we want to do is examine them, (you look good Joey) and find out if any of
these types of symptoms are going on. And once we do recognize those symptoms, that
way we can move forward and institute therapy.
