I would like to know if a baby sulcata's respiratory infection ever gets resolved. My Frankie is 4 months old and s/he contracted respiratory infection more than a week ago. The vet prescribed 0.01 ml shot of doxycycline every 3 days. Frankie just had her/his 3rd shot yesterday, but his/her condition does not seem to improve. I see him/her still having some breathing difficulties (front limbs moving up and down with head). His appetite has slightly decreased. I read that respiratory infections do not really get fully resolved in tortoises. Can anyone advise, if perhaps there should be a stronger antibiotic that can be given?
