Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. You're to Dr Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you shortly.

Sorry to hear of this issue with Ravan. Given the symptoms you describe, upper respiratory tract infection/inflammation is possible such as we might see with kennel cough or other viral infection for example. In this case symptoms should be self limiting over 5-7 days, a course of prescription antiinflamamtory medication often can help ease symptoms. If signs persist then a veterinary examination is going to be necessary to help narrow down the course of the problem and determine the next step of investigation and treatment.

I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
