Thanks, Helen. Yes, Milo is on Baytril, an antibiotic and she
mentioned the virus could be just about anything, including the
secondary bacterial infection. (He just got his respiratory shot two
weeks ago today, too!) And I plan to watch Spike even MORE than I
currently do to make sure he stays bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. The
vet said sneezes wouldn't matter, just the lethargy, not eating,
moving, etc. And that fits poor Milo to "T." He has eaten a tiny
amount, and drank water this morning, so that makes me happy.
