If it is URI there are a few options. 1. Taking it to a vet is always the best option as there is almost no substitute. 2. You can increase the temperature and lower humidity. Getting the temp to about 100 degrees for a few weeks will kick start the immune system (best setup is UVA lighting during the day and red lights at night keeping that constant temp) while the low humidity will basically dry out the mucus. 3. you can also try the f10 disinfectant nebulization trick alot of breeders have been promoting. The last two are only for mostly early stages of URI, but taking to a vet is always the best option.

if your child was gravly sick you would take him/her to the doctors or hospital correct? same applies to herps if the are sick they need professional help. It’s never a good idea to play doctor
