    Hi, so my friends roster has started sneezing and wheezing just in the past night, we looked in his mouth and can see white mucus and inflamed all around is esophagus and into the opening of the bronchial tubes. We know of medicine that helps with respirator/ sinuses infections but the store is not open till tomorrow. We are hoping we can find something that will help him breath better over night as his mouth breathing and has shortness in breath.
    Hope someone has some suggestions.

    Quarantine him IMMEDIATELY, I would bet large $$ that he's contagious. Keep him warm, quiet and comfortable with easy access to fresh water. Try a little vicks vapo-rub, a tiny bit around his nares and a dab under the wings. There's not much else you can do until you can get real medicine.
