    Sick cat when antibiotics are finished

    Recently we got a kitten. The kitten came with a herpes virus—that's what the vet diagnosed. When the kitten was introduced to our 5-year-old cat, the older cat developed upper respiratory issues. Both were put on antibiotics for parasites and a Lysine gel for the herpes. The older cat's respiratory issues cleared up. When the round of antibiotics was done, the older cat was sick again with the respiratory issues. The kitten started to develop the respiratory issues as well. Both were put on Clavamox. The kitten is fine. But now that they are both off the antibiotics, the older cat is experiencing the respiratory issues again. When she is sick, her meow is raspy and she is lethargic. She also has gingivitis and the vet is wondering is she has an abscessed tooth.
