Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about Booby's condition...I know you are very worried...
These symtoms tell us that he is most likely suffering from an Upper Respiratory infection which causes a digestive disturbance and fever which causes a poor appetite. I fear that Booby will require veterinary care such as antibiotics to get him past this. Take him to your vet for an exam as soon as possible. In the emantime, you will have to provide supportive care which includes Pedialyte, 1-2 ounces every 4 hrs so he is hydrated and if you can get Booby to eat something, give aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs to bring down his fever.
You will not know for sure until your vet can examine Booby and run tests.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you

So, upper respiratory infection also causes diarrhoea, water discharge form the mouth and eyes, dry cough and a swollen mouth?
Is it viral or bacterial?
Could you pin it down to a name or a genus?
Would ALL of the symptoms provided to you be apparent in this condition?
What do you think causes the inflammation of the mouth then if it is an infection?
Thank you so much, Kevin for your kind rating. It is very much appreciated! Even though you have rated, we can still communicate. If you have other questions, please Reply. I am always happy to help.
Have a wonderful day, Kevin...Booby too!
