    Could possibly be a respiratory disease. Here's a link to respiratory diseases. Scroll down and take a look at Infectious Coryza and Mycoplasma Gallisepticum (MG.) There's alot of that going around it seems. Feel free to read about the other illnesses.

    Thanks to all for the information and referred link. lots of information and he is actually responding i think to the second does of meds. he'll get third dose tomorrow. as a precaution with fungal i will go forth and use heated humidifier with oxine ah next week a few days later.......
    I hear no congestion today, but you have toget him and let sit in hand or lap for bit. he has never acted abnormal and he has been eating and drinking just fine. so what ever it is , hopefully i got it early.

    Thanks again,


    Dale
