Never give or personally take antibiotics without a prescription. Finish the entire course of antibiotics, even after you feel better. If you do not finish the course, the remaining bacteria will develop immunity to that antibiotic and be harder to kill next time. It is the same with animals. If they are not eating, try to entice them to eat by warming their food or adding warm water to dry food and making it smell better. If they are under the weather, they may not be able to smell as easily and this will help. If not, they should be seen by a veterinarian.
