Exclamation Respiratory Infection? Help?

I've had Harry for almost a year now and recently (within the past week) I have noticed a change in his breathing. He sounds kind of stuffed up, I have been monitoring him, he is still extremely active, drinks and eats normally, poops normally and his eyes, nose and mouth are clear of mucus. I even switched him from wood shavings, to fleece, much cleaner and nicer for him. I have scheduled a vet appointment for Thursday (today is Monday) is there any home remedies I can do for him between now and Thursday? I hate seeing the little guy sick

I would suggest just trying to keep him warm, if you have CHE that's great, but you can also use a heating pad as a temporary fix. When Liam's URI started, I nebulized him using saline solution and a drop of rosemary aromatherapy oil. I'd also call his vet again to see if they could possibly move up the appointment to Wednesday, or if possible tomorrow. If you suspect a URI I'd try to get him in as quick as you can because it can turn into pneumonia pretty fast, and that can be deadly.
