Cat with upper respiratory

Since Charma is lactose intolerant, should I be avoiding all remedies that are made with lactose?

Charma was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism on Feb.26,2007. She also has acute renal insuffinciency, which should 'heal' in time.

Problem is Charma came home from the hospital on Thursday with an upper respiratory. Sneezing, post nasel drip, too much mucus, sniffling when she puts her head down, loss of smell from the congestion, and I'm sure some kind a headache, have all turned her off of eating or drinking. We are in serious trouble of kidney complications if I can't get her to drink. Believe me I've been trying ebery trick in the book.

I have been trying some homeopathics with no luck, so I need your opinion. I'm also looking for an appetite stimulent for her.

I will be taking her back to the vet tomorrow for IV fluids and a drug-induced appetite stimulent.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
On your question of lactose intolerance, the pillules are already very small and she only needs one. If you give it to her as a wet dose by dissolving one pillule in a bottle of water and then giving her up to a teaspoon of that, she is getting virtually none of the original sugar pill. I wouldn't expect any reaction from that.

Sorry, I don't have any suggestions for what you should give her.

Good luck!
