Q. My miniature dachshund has a cold. What is a good holistic remedy that I can use to help her feel better. She is 6 years old, weighs 7 pounds

A. It is safest to not give any medications or holistic remedies to your pet without the advice of your vet or a certified veterinary homeopath. Make sure she continues to eat and drink normally. Keep her warm and dry. Seek veterinary attention if you see difficulty breathing, lethargy or loss of appetite.
