Can someone please help? My ratty boy Kit just doesn't seem right, he's approx 3-4 months old. He's very listless, lying in my arms. His breathing keeps speeding up and slowing down, but he's not having difficulty breathing. And he has only just started with the slightest wee sneeze. He's been sleeping all day. He's got what appears to be porphyrin coming from his nose and eyes. And his cheeks seem swollen? He's eating but not with the vigor he usually does and wouldn't hold it himself. I am not sure what to do. The only place available to take him to is a big vet training facility and it is after hours (currently 8.20pm), and I hate to be "that person" but I really can not afford their after hours fees at this present time. Can anyone help with suggestions on what it could be or how I can get him to last through the night?!
