My rabbit has a URI and has been on azithromycin for 48 hours (also baytril for a ear infection for 48 hours and chloremphenical eye drops for two weeks for a teary eye). azithromycin is the second antibiotic last week he was on a diff antibiotic with no success. He has a pretty serious uri and im not seeing any improvement for the uri so i wanted to complement the treatment with steam should i do that? or it wont make a diff also how would i go about doing that?
by steam i mean ive read about turning on a shower and let the bathroom fill with steam and let the bunny breath that in
I would be concerned about the steam treatment because it could make things worse. I know sometimes when people have asthma or colds they find it difficult to breathe in the shower. Your bunny can't really tell you if it's making it difficult for him to breathe.
i think the reason it helps is it loosen the mucas in the lungs and that way he can cough it up easier. so what i was saying is to help his treatment do you think i should use steam . i remember reading somewhere maybe medi-rabbit that steam can loosen the mucus.
