Hello friends, I wanted to thank everyone for their overwhelming good wishes for Kip and Jimmy on Wednesday and for the many suggestions and remedies to help them recover from their colds.
I purchased some Viralys lysine palatable gel (hah) from my vet and have been dosing everyone with that. I also purchased Lysine capsules that I can break open and sprinkle on their food which might be easier for maintenance since they are not keen to eat the gel.
Here is an update on the everyone:
Kip is very much improved, his eyes are no longer running and I only heard a couple of sneezes today, he is frisky again and very engaged.
Jimmy is in the thick of it, his eyes are not running but his nose is and he sneezes frequently, he seems sad and not himself. He is still eating and drinking so I'm taking that as a good sign.
Archie and Casper seem fine, fingers crossed they will remain that way.
Ben was fine too but tonight before bed I heard him sneeze. I'm really praying it was actually Jimmy doing a little ventriloquism because he was also in the room, I guess we will just have to wait and see.
I was very touched that so many of you left kind get well comments for the Boys, it is truly wonderful to be part of such a supportive network of people :-)
Thank you again,
