My two 10-week old Devon Rex kittens suddenly developed the symptoms of a human cold. I have been informed that they have a cat flu that can be either from a virus or bacteria. However, I am getting conflicting info on the best antibiotic and dosage. I was told to get Biomax Suspension - 5 mg per lb. for 5-7 days but I can only find info about it being prescribed for dogs. Also, I was originally told to apply Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment 2-4 times daily on their eyes. When I researched this on the internet, I discovered that Tetracycline 1% applied 3-4 times daily seems to be a more common treatment for kittens.
They are still eating and drinking and are very playing. I have been using a humidifier to break up their conjestion but I need to start their medication. However, I want to be sure of the correct treatment.
Can anybody help me please...I love my babies!
