My 15 yr. old boy seems to have a cold that is hanging on, about 12 days. His appetite is normal, water intake normal. He was sneezing but that subsided. His eyes are clear, but a little damp in the corners. His nose is wet and he is a bit low key. He has other issues, IBD, under control with a low dose of Prednisone every other day. Can I give him Vitamin C to help clear up his cold? If it is a human tablet of say 1000, how much can be given a day, and how long?
Are there any other home remedies recommended, before I schedule a Vet?
I wouldn't give it vit C with out calling your vet. I call my vet all the time when I have a question and she always tells me that is what she is here for. My vet also doesn't charge for my phone calls.
I would ask the vet if you can put him on antibiotics.
