WHOA!!!! this is about 2X as much as needed. give her .25-.28cc's. I
perfer Triaminic without any acetominiphin(sp) or asprin. i get it for the
sneezes or cough. BUT....

>>She's coughing and sneezing
and seems to be having a difficult time breathing. >>

it could have gone down in to her lungs and become something worse. i would
take to vet and make sure it isnt there and become worse. like pnemonia.
(been there done that)

good luck :)
