Sneezing cat medication

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing cat medication


My vet has given it to my cat but I wouldn't try to do it on my own. Here's the interesting thing about my cat. She's been sneezing a lot this last month too, and I took her in and they gave me some antibiotics just in case it was a bacterial infection like bronchitis or something, I guess. She just finished up the 10 day package and I noticed she's not sneezing anymore, though she still has the weepy eye. I hope you get answers soon!
My cat is sneezing and seems to have allergies is there a otc medicine that is safe to give her? Please help we are broke and can;t afford to take her to the vet is there something I can do for her?
Hello, My cat is 15 years old and he has been sneezing all day! At first I thought it was cute the first time because he woke me up sneezing twice. Then, later on the day he sneezed like almost 100 times. He has heart worms and my parents gave him the medicine yesterday. But I think he may be sick or have a virus! Help me please!?
Hello, I have a cat who has sense the day we rescued him been sneezing and at points discharging, for a lack of better words, snot balls on the walls. Sometimes when he sneezes its almost 20 times in a row. We have taken him to the vet and have received a medication that did not work after completing the full bottle. I don't recall the name of this medicine. We have a fairly clean apartment IMO.

My question is, are there any over-the-counter medications that we can give this poor cat so we don't have to pay 50$ over and over again to visit the Vet.
We took her home in a crate (recently used by my other cat and my dog sometimes slept in there) and when we were in the car she started sneezing and one of her eyes was a little bit watery. Now that shes home she continues to sneeze often and her eye is still watery. Could something in my house be irritating her? Could she be allergic to something? Or did i adopt a sick kitten? What should i do? Thank You.

my cat is 11 yrs old. I love him. but he continues to sneeze and cough - hard to know the difference. My mother is a doctor and gave me an an antibiotics for him. But after 3 days I see no improvement. And also his eyes are ver dirty. Please any help?
I've used OTC ear mite medication - even though she shows no other signs. The medication had no effect on the sneezing or the recurrence of dirt. 2 years ago she ate a decorative dried grain top (think of an ear of wheat) which became lodged in her throat, abscessed and had to be surgically removed/repaired. Is it possible that this could have created a polyp which has become infected and is affecting her sinuses? What would need to be done to check this? (Not another surgery I hope!
Sometimes my boyfriend's deodorant will set me off, other times it's because I've had a cat on my knee for too long. My sneezing episodes (like many of you above) follow absolutely no pattern and give no warning when they're about to strike. My GP prescribes me loratidine or cetrizine hydrochlorde, I alternate the two as loratidine doesn't work as well for me but doesn't send me to sleep! I also have a nasal spray (which makes me sneeze) and some eye drops.
I have been diagnosed with non allergic rhinitis and the sneezing and congestion happens mostly when I am ready for bed, or comes on suddenly during the night. At times I wake up because I am about to sneeze. I had a CAT scan, and my ENT doctor said my sinuses were inflamed. He gave me a 5 day steriod treatment and said he could only do it a couple times a year. I felt great for 3 weeks, now it's back to being as is was prior to the treatment.
That is what I figured. So it is going to be the cat who is sneezing. I think that should be the one who has the problem. Chances are this one may have an upper respiratory infection and is sneezing blood tinged mucus--which may mean they have a bacterial infection . This will need some antibiotics. Keep us posted, K?
Suki my female cat also has this problem and never seems to stop licking. She has bald spots on the backs of her legs and also on her back towards the base of her tail. We adopted her brother Ted (or should say he adopted us) about a year ago and I wonder if she is stressed. I haven't taken her to the vets as I don't really want her put on steroids, but I have changed her diet to fresh meat in the hope that this might work.
You can place medication in his food bowl if no other cat eats out of his bowl. If they do all eat out of each other's bowls, than try giving him a cat pill pocket to see if he likes the pill pockets. If he does, you don't have to actually catch him to give him his medication. You can place a tablet or capsule in the pill pocket and throw it for him. You will probably have to throw empty pill pockets to the other cats. You will still have to get him an antibiotic from your vet.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to help de-allergize a cat instead of getting rid of the cat? Our 3 1/2 yr old will probably fall to pieces if we end up having to give the cat away because her sister is severely allergic to him. To keep this in persective, I'm allergic to cats also, but manage mine fairly well and have grown out of mine, mostly. There are some products for bathing and for spraying around the house.
as far as the cold, this is no doubt feline respiratory virus or cat flu. as with human flu there is no medication that will help, what you need to do is support the immune system to help your kitty fight this off. You can get L-lysine at any health food store. supplement 500mg for a week than drop down to 250mg for as long as needed..I can send you a list of the best brands to use if you like, let me know.
DH and I adopted a cat last summer. When we first got her she was lovable and would lay with us. At her vet appointment (a week later) we were told she needed 3 kinds of antibiotics for the week. One went in her eyes, one went in her ears and the last was an oral medication. We had to "kitty burrito" her just to get her to take the meds. Needless to say she was not happy. After that she has been really skittish.
First-I think she picked up a kitty cold @ the vet; 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.
They can make sure that the infection hasn't come back. By the way, I've had a cat that got sooooo stressed by a new cat that she stopped eating and washing herself. I had to give the new cat to my mom. I wasn't a happy camper about it, but I didn't want to put my older kitty through the stress. As soon as the new cat left, she was her normal self again. That is proof to me what stress can do to an animal. I think that if you keep them separated, you'll have wonderful results.
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.
Keep litter boxes away from food preparation areas and out of the reach of small children. Cat scratch fever, also known as cat scratch disease and other names is only caught by a scratch from a cat. Kittens are more likely to carry the bacteria in their blood, and may therefore be more likely to transmit the disease than adult cats. It is a usually benign infectious disease caused by the intracellular bacterium Bartonella henselae.
Last July, my cat, Fred (7), escaped from the house. That night, he had a sneezing fit and was later found nearly unconscious. We took him to the ER, where he spent several days being treated for a URI. When Fred returned from the ER, he was still lethargic and rarely jumped. He used to sleep with us or on the couch and jump into windows. All this stopped. A month into his recovery, he began to snap at us if we tried to touch his right side. The snapping became progressively worse.
My female cat has started licking off her hair on her paws and legs and possibly is starting on her belly - they are long hair and it's kinda hard to tell until a definite bald patch appears. This has been happening since before Christmas. At first I thought it was due to the loss of her beloved "Cat tree" but I got her a replacement - although I'm not sure she likes it near as much.
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.
Well sounds like your cat has an upper respiratory infection. You'd better get that taken care of before it's too late. The vet will be able to help. Cats with URI get euthanized at shelters, so yeah, it is serious. If you have other cats you should isolate this one or else the infection will spread rather quickly. I'd take the cat to the vet ASAP.
After she washed the cat I took anti-allergic meds for a some days, after that I stopped the medication and all my symptoms were gone until a week or so ago, my throat it sore, after doing some research online I found out that you can get asthma if you have an allergic reaction to cats, I don't think I have most of the asthma symptoms, but sometimes I feel lack of breath (barely noticeable), nasal congestion and I have a strange feeling every time I breath like if I was breathing cold air.
But he had a mild panic attack during the scan and couldn't complete it. He got a CAT scan instead, which did not reveal anything of concern. Apparently I am more concerned than he is. He seems fine with the negative results of the CAT scan.
What does it mean when your cat has watery eyes or gugcky eyes, an eye discharge? When is it necessary to go to the doc, and when it is just like a cold? Assuming Cats get colds.
Adopted peanut from shleter 6/09. 2 weeks later, noticed lots of sneezing, followed by clear eye discharge. we did terramycin eye ointment for over 3 weeks, no improvement. then the PCR test was done and results were positive for mycoplasma, so we did 3 weeks on doxycycline (cycle ended yesterday). some improvement, but now more sneezing and still some clear eye discharge.
My head feels like it is stuffed with cotton, and I have pressure headaches, but my nose is clear with only occasional sneezing. I had a CAT scan of my sinuses last year, and it showed only minimum inflamation. I fell there has to be some connection with the anxiety and allergies. I am not taking any medication except for an occasional Advil Cold and Sinus. Does anyone else notice an increase in anxiety during allergy season.
