I have a 15 year old blue point birman with kidney disease. She has developed what sounds like a chesty cough or infection and a sore throat. I took her to the vet and he gave her a small dose of cortizone, (she only weighs 2 kilos) which helped ease the inflammation in her throat.
This morning I called him because I'm worried about the congestion in her lungs/chest and he told me to get her to breathe in eucalyptus oil vapor for 15 minutes morning and night.
He is an excellent vet and has always looked after Diddy well but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this kind of problem or any advice on how I can help her. Other than the congestion she is much better than she was 2 days ago and is eating, drinking and purring as normal.
Many thanks in advance :)
