Common Questions and Answers about Cat sneezing with nasal discharge

sneeze

He started to sneeze frequently maybe the last 2 months. He is maybe sneezing around 20 times during the day. He doesn't have any nasal or eye discharge. He doesn't cough. He has a very good appetite and he plays like normal. No signs of fatigue. He doesn't have any physical change in appearance in face. He doesn't snore. He doesn't have mouth smell. Basically everything is like always besides sneezing. I don't know if it might be any sort of allergy.
Yes I would take him in for some xrays, I don't want to scare you but my Bailey also developed the same sneezing that also included a discharge with small amounts of blood. My Vet made her an appointment with a specialist that did xrays and found a large tumor back deep in her nasal passage, they didnt recommend any treatment other than comfort measures....when she totally lost her sense of smell of course she stopped eating and I had to put her down...
Thanks for your good help. History; Symptoms: Cat about 10 yrs old. Periodic sneezing and serous nasal discharge for years. Also reverse coughing. Recently had almost all teeth extracted and remaining few cleaned. Nasal test swabs were done for Chlamydia, Herpes, Calci-all negative Punch biopsy of nare tumor was scc early stage-either prestage or stage I X-rays taken of head-nasal cavities showed calcification, whatever that means. I have not seen the xrays, but can probably get them.
The sneezing I can live with---it's 10 hours a day with a running nose that's a killer. I'm starting a nasal spray called Omnaris and hoping it helps. It's truly a debilitating condition and I commiserate with the others who've written.
so yesterday we agreed to do sinus surgery to clear it all out. he thinks that could be sinusitus with nasal polyps in right max sinus and the one in my nostril as well...has anyone ever had something like this? internet gives so much negative and conflicting info and quite honestly its scary as well.
True there are some viruses that cause repeated episodes of local (in and around the eye in this case) inflammation and increased discharge with no history of recent cat to cat contact, we might expect other symptoms in the case of viral diseases (2 eyes affected, sneezing, coughing, nasal discharge, fever, decreased appetite, etc). We have none of that. I am skeptical that a "cold" exists in this case. It is more likely that: 1.

Cats typically spread URI viruses through sneezing and nasal discharge so if there is still discharge, your cat could still spread the virus. Many cats harbor Herpes virus for years and can start shedding again when stressed. I would wait 3-4 weeks after the last vaccine booster is given. It is possible for the FIV+ cat to get symptoms of URI after vaccination. It depends on how well the immune system responds to the vaccine. Most likely, the vaccine will help limit symptoms though.
My 10 year old indoor cat started to have sneezing,nasal discharge, weight loss and a runny eye since November of 08 with heavy breathing. Went to the vet, they gave him amoxicillin tablets which got rid of the heavy breathing however it is January and he has lost alot of weight, has excessive phlegm in his troat, minor eye discharge and once in a while a runny nostril. His main problem seems to be the excessive phlegm. They have him on cephalexin which is not helping.

The most common mode of transmission is through DIRECT close contact with a sneezing cat. Symptoms include: sneezing, nasal discharge, cough, and pneumonia. 3. Streptococcus A bacteria (Strept Throat) is a human organism that can be spread to cats and than back again.
I am seeing the Allergist next week as I have been diagnosed with Allergic Rhinitis. I am using Rhinocort nasal spray and still taking the Allegra...I was diagnosed with ETD in my left ear and in November 2007 I was sick for three weeks, got better and then got sick again after Christmas...could this all be massive inflammation and have to resolve with time...I also noticed that when I was on Clindamycin...
The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
If you try it, monitor your hamster closely for any skin irritation, scratching, sneezing, nasal or eye discharge. These scented products such as small pet bedding and cat litter are scented for our benefit, not our pets, and its a better choice to get unscented products and change them more frequently before any objectionable odor develops.
daily two weeks ago. Her symptoms are few but include a thick, green nasal discharge from the right nostril, sneezing, and periodically watery discharge from both eyes. The symptoms have waxed and waned several times disappearing completely for nearly two weeks only to return. She is otherwise playful with a hearty appetite, excellent stools, nice coat, good gums and teeth. My most recent encounter with the vet left her with the diagnosis of "chronic viral syndrome.
Even though the PCR was negative for Herpes, I don't know that I would rule it out. I have had many patients with chronic eye or nasal discharge or sneezing improve with L-Lysine supplements. L-Lysine is an amino acid that helps reduce the replication of Herpes and helps to reduce the symptoms. It is worth a try for a few weeks. It usually takes 1-2 weeks to see effect and some cats need to be on it for months or years.
now 2 weeks after his last round of antibiotics, his nose is again crusty, with discharge sneezing and his ears have gone back to being pretty bright pink. this coloring is on the external part of the ear, not inside. this is the first time we have noticed the ears returning to the bright pink he came with which kind of looks unnatural on the cat. he does have some wax build up that we clean out a couple times of week that they say is probably draining from his nasal issues.
Dear MorganMaple, It sounds like you are getting excellent advice and care form your doctor already. As you know the feline herpesvirus will undergo "recrudescence" intermittantly with ill defined factors we often call "stress." The use of antibiotics to suppress the secondary bacterial infections, lysine, interferon and antiviral eye drops all have some benefit.
If you do not choose to biopsy, and while waiting for the culture and sensitivity results, your vet could try treating your cat with prednisolone, vitamin E, and with the antibiotic Zithromax. The prednisolone and vitamin E would be for the auto-immune part of the disease and the Zithromax should cover the secondary bacterial infection. Zithromax is excellent for upper respiratory infections and it also is effective against Bartonella.
by what margins. I cannot afford such a scan. This cat has has serous nasal discharge with sneezing for at least 6-7 years. Tests negative for calci, herpes and chlamydia; negative for HIV and the other killer virus. X-rays taken of the skull prior to dental cleaning showing some calcification; question whether there is a comcomitant cancerous process in the nasal passages or elsewhere.
could also be that she has a small particle irritating her nasal passage (?) for cats with an acute attack we use 500mg for a week, than down to 250mg following for a few weeks. and for cats its important to use the brand with NO additives...just pure lysine. I will give you a link to where I order mine from...because locally its sometimes hard to find the same brand. I also suggest you post this question on the Animal Health forum, where a Vet Dr.
Just to be clear, he has NEVER shown any signs of nasal discharge or sneezing. The only signs were a change in personality, lethargy, lack of appetite, and stuffy sounding breathing. What does my baby have and why isn't he getting better??
I don't think I have conuncitvitis, bacterial, viral or otherwise, because my eyes are not very red, ust irritated and no noticable discharge either.
2 years ago I moved back to California and we got a second Siberian cat. Moving back to California completely removed by nasal allergies (no more sneezing and sniffles) but getting the second Siberian seems to have given me a strange allergic reaction. I now have swollen red upper and lower eyelids.

Then white blood cells come to attack the bacteria, and the battle further swells and congests the nasal passages. The discharge that comes out of your nose is usually yellowish or greenish. Doctors refer to it as purulent nasal discharge. It’s this nasty mess that is the problem we are going to deal with in this book.
My 5 yr old neutered male, Butters, picked up an upper respiratory virus from Spirit-she's recovering from both a bladder and resp. infection. My vet said as long as all discharge from either his nose or eyes remains clear, not alot to do at this point and let it run it's course, unfortunately. Can I do anything to make his poor sneezy self more comfortable? He looks miserable! Spirit's on the mend and almost back to herself but she spent a couple nights @ the vet. Thanks for any help!
9 years ago, I had a breakdown and afterwards moved into a place for 6 months where the lady let her dogs run all over the beds. I had cats in my childhood and was fine with them, until developing a cat fur allergy in the last 4 years of their life, and ever since then. Since moving out of the lady's house, I have ever since had the most almighty, hacking, crackly, phlegm producing cough which sounds very similar to a smokers cough-I have NEVER ever smoked in my life.
