A. Doxycycline is an antibiotic of choice. It should be given oraly for at least 3-4 weeks with symptomatic teraphy. You should follow your vets instructions if there is a suspicion of chlamydiosis. Every cat in the household should be treated as well. If you would have an urgent question in the future better ask certain expert to receive quick answer.
