Cat sneezing with no discharge

Common Questions and Answers about Cat sneezing with no discharge

sneeze

In October my 5 year old female cat received a shot of ampicillin and clavmox for URI. Although her sneezing with discharge has decreased somewhat, it still continues. We have 2 other cats who all share food/water bowls. One has mid-stage kidney disease so his immune system is compromised. Neither of the cats (nor any of the humans) she lives with show signs of URI. And believe me she's sneezed on everything and everybody!
My other cat Kramer was adopted at the same time, from the same place, and had even more health problems in the beginning, does not get this eye discharge. What is wrong with my cat? Should I be concerned or is this just allergies? His eyes are not red and he doesn't seem to be bothered by anything else...no itching, no sneezing, nothing inflamed. He eats normal, goes to the bathroom normal, plays a LOT with his brother, etc.
Last fall I noticed many of them sneezing,and they have leaky eyes and now that winter is here they are really coughing and sneezing with eyes and noses that are leaking. I feel so sorry for them and I don't know what they have? I have been giving them lots of warm meals and cleaning their eyes and noses. Thank you.
The problem is the secondary infections, which you try to treat with antibiotics. But the other big problem is a cat with a stuffed up nose WON'T EAT. They can't smell their food, and feel sick, so they have no real appetite. Here's what you can do to try to get your cat through this; First, keep treating with the antibiotics for any infections. Clean it's eyes regularly if needed with a damp washcloth, but don't rub hard, be gentle.
He slurps his food up in a hurry then he is steady sneezing non stop and blowing his nose. No discharge of any type comes out. This goes on for quite awhile. He was starved to death and on deaths door when I first got him.he is fat and sassy seems to always be healthy and feeling good full of energy. He eats well 1can of fancy feast every morning and oorient six fish as much as he cares to eat. Do you think there is something major wrong should I take him to the vet and have this checked out?
Violent sneezing and watery eyes all day with no other symptoms. The next day she is fine with little or no sneezing. It happens to her more often (once a month) in winter than in summer (once every few months). She had an allergy test done and it showed that she wasn't allergic to anything. She just got done with a very strict candida diet while taking Candex and probiotics. She just had a sneezing day yesterday so that didn't affect it.
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.
Siamese Lynx-Point,spayed female, 8 yrs old, no prior medical condition other than 2 UTI's. Presents with coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge. Given Amoxil for RI for 7 days, went away for 3 months... came back ...given another dose Amoxil for 10 days. Symptoms came back 1 month later Given another med for 10 days and on 7th day quit eating and still drinking.
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.
she started sneezing alot last night-I picked her up the day before yesterday-should I do anything special? She's NOT coughing-I know kennel cough is dangerous; she's just sneezing. No yucky snottums or eye discharge and her appetite is normal.
It doesn't seem to hurt him. He eats and drinks normal. Has no discharge or bad odor to his breath. No sneezing or coughing. Any ideas???
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.
and he gave me the x-ray to take with me when I go see the specialist. The vet said he had cat with similar problem and survived for a couple of years. Hopefully this time the meds will work...I did ask the vet about Cryptococcosis, he said that infection is very rare for an indoor cat...
I guess she could have an allergy to something like chicken, how would you know, except maybe to stop feeding it to her for awhile..Fleas, i have not seen any on her and she is an inside cat with no other animals around her.. Dust mites, who knows, you can clean and clean and there still is dust .. Best regards..
I have been suffering for 6 months now with no sign of ever getting better. I think my family is so tired of hearing me complain. No one understands unless they have walked in my shoes. Based on an article I read about Autophony the Eustation tube is supposed to stay closed only opening when you swallow. With this problem the ET stays open all the time.
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.
My cat has been sneezing and having nasal discharge for a month now. She has no other symptoms. She plays,she eats well. Just sneezes and has nasal drainage. Her eyes are good. No swollen or runny eyes. Is this allergies? I noticed she usually only sneezes when her nose touches objects or she sniffs. Sometimes mucous comes out with the sneeze.
I have tried Rhinocort, Nasarel and Flonase for many weeks with no improvement, and have tried Astelin nasal spray and Allegra with no effect. I doubt this is allergies, as I have never in my life had allergies, and also because this sinus pressure is CONSTANTLY there regardless of whether I am possibly in the presence of allergens.
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.
I would only worry about gucky eyes if ONLY one eye is got crud in it or both eyes are cruddy and their is sneezing or breathing problems. Two cruddy eyes with no other symptoms is probably not a health concern. I hope this helped!!
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.
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.
My cat became sick with a bad cold due to the feline herpes virus. We gave him the L-Lysine twice a day and some antibiotics once a day. It took the full week, but he got better. Three weeks later he starts to show signs of getting sick again...namely being a little snuffly. Started the L-Lysine again, but no change so we took him to the vet. Same diagnosis, same meds. He got worse and stopped eating. We were told he now had an infection in his head & his chest.
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. Redford, can tell you if its ok to use this for bunnies too, but I can't see why not. I will also give you a link to that forum. good luckā™„ http://www.iherb.
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.
I have a persian/himilayan cat and it seems she always has a discharge from her eyes--mostly when she sleeps. Is it a common condition of himilayan cats? I have taken her to the vet and have medicine for her eyes but she still wakes up with black goop around her eyes. I wash it off with a moist cloth and that also inspires her to do some cleaning herself.
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.
