Sneezing in older cats

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing in older cats

sneeze

Recently he has become anaphelatic, the older he gets the worse it gets im interested in the new allergies you developed overtime. Is this something i need to be mindful of?
Saturday night we received a small dusting of snow in Montreal, (yes very early even by our standards) and when I awoke Sunday AM the sneezing started. In the past though sparingly in the past year, I would have small sneeze attacks after stepping out of the shower in the morning and it would go away after getting dressed, these "shower attacks" don't happen as often anymore.
left untreated can progress quickly and even be fatal in older or very ill cats.. Your cat may need antibiotics if he develops an infection, DO NOT allow your Vet to talk you into an antibiotic injection called convenia...this has proven to be fatal in many cats...(you can read some previous posts), ... go with a pill or liquid form if needed... Immediately isolate a cat with flu like symptoms to prevent transmission. Use precautions such as frequent hand washing after handling.
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. Does anyone have any recommendations before I start shooting in the dark?
I have a continuous problem with thick mucous in my throat. I must clear my throat a hundred times a day. My larnyx gets so full of the thick mucous that I almost choke and it causes my eyes to water. When this happens I hack up about a quarter cup of the stuff. I went to an ENT specialist who diagnosed sinusitis due to restricted airflow because of a deviated septum. After two surgeries for this there is no improvment. I've tried Musinex and steroid nose sprays. Nothing seems to help.
I'm guessing with the name magnolia and raining, u must be in the south! Lol. It's raining cats and dogs here in Georgia and I hate it!

The rescue girl told us he was neutered and that was supposed to be included in the price. He also said he was older than 1 yr, maybe 2 yrs. He has a virus or some stomach problem. There is a problem with his testicles not being down where they should be. He has a possible allergy. He has a lesion on his mouth, they have to test for cancer. He might have worms, they are testing. He needs flea treatment. We have to pay $300 to have the neutering done, and this visit was $100.
Sometimes sneezing and problematic breathing are heart related.Especially in older cats. best of luck and... Try and smoke away from her, in either case!
), doing passive aggressive or hostile pranks (in the past), self medicating with natural remedies (in the past), drinking large amounts of caffeinated beverages (in the past), overstating my important/thinking I could "change the world", unable to concentrate on tasks but becoming obssessed with something unimportant. Right now I am to the point where I can spot this and catch it before it gets worse. Can you? What happens with you? Can you stop it? And could you learn?
Hi my daughter is older 6 and allergic to cats and occasionally gets exercise induced asthma. She takes singular daily and has a pump just in case. Be sure she is not around cats at all. I think my daughter was overly exposed to cats at my moms too as an infant and now somehow she developed asthma. (very mild) By the way I took by daugter to an ENT. Good Luck.
I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Dear Sirs, I had an allergy test in the 1980's and am experiencing quite a bit of sneezing and congestion, how often are people needing to take a test? My last test came out that I am slightly allergic to most things, but I have a big difference with house dust--a 2+. How do allergies develop, anyway?
I try coughing or drinking but the throat noise does not go away or even change it. I can tell it is not in my lungs, but in my throat. I can breathe shallow and minimize the noise but I feel out of breath then. My daughters say this wheeze is not my snore.They say I wheeze before the snore on intake and then exhale. I hear the noise during the day but I really have to listen to hear it as there is always too much back ground noise.
After a few days, both cats became sick, sneezing, watery eyes, discharge. The kitten was first, so I got him an antibiotic and he's fine now. But my other cat became very ill within a couple of days, and she has been in the emergency animal hospital all weekend and is now staying at the vets. She has a high fever that goes up and down, very congested and not eating. This has gone on for five days. Is this a typical URI?
Is it possible the calicivirus will run its course in an older cat? I did try and feed him water by syringe tonight and he clawed and bit at us trying to help him! (he's a very grumpy boy & always has been-we love him-but he's a grump:) Any ideas? Should we wait it out with him (he is not limping). I did manage to get him to eat a couple of bites of wet food and then he walked away (odd for the guy who LOVES to eat!
This is very common in shelter settings. Think of it as similar to cold sores seen in humans but sneezing is the symptoms. It is highly contagious so don't allow any unvaccinated cats into your house and wash your hands before you leave the house. If your other cat is up to date and you fully vaccinate him/her, this is too much of a risk for transmission.
I grew up with three cats and have an older cat of my own now and none of them have ever had colds so I wouldn't know if this is a normal cold or not. I am just really concerned. She seems happier when her brother is cuddling with her but I don't want him getting sick again. Can someone give me some advice please?? Thank you in advance!!!
He runs, jumps, and plays with my other cats and chases them all over the house. However, in his old age he has lost ALOT of weight. My veterinarian did some lab on him about a year ago and everything was great. He told me older cats tend to do that and whatever he wants to eat, give it to him. I also give him steroids almost 2 out of 4 weeks in a month for allergies as he sneezes constantly.
Days 1-3: Male: coughing and sneezing Day 4: Male: Difficulty breathing - congestion, not eating, drinking, sleeping, or pooping. Taken to vet. Prescribed oral-antibiotics, and diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection. Day 5: Male: No improvement, breathing difficulties worsen, and no longer concerned with attempting the litter box. Taken to vet. Given injectable antibiotics, x-rays show lungs are clear, and given liquids under the skin.
DS has been coughing and sneezing recently in lieu of more humid conditions and the windows being open. DH had terrible allergies as a kid and was very sick- how will I know if DS has the same problem? Would this be allergies? Would it slow his appetite, or could that be his teeth (he doesn't want to eat as much and chews on the nipple)? Any advice would be ever so helpful! Thanks!
Sara, I have been PMing you the updates lol But the little one is still sneezing and now my older is sneezing too. I gotta wait until next week to get the lab results for ringworm testing. In the meantime, Dillan is having fun playing with Abby, making him sick lol. I will keep the updates coming hon, through PM's or on this thread.
I had taken both cats to the vet for an eye infection that seems to get better , but its like fighting off lice with no shampoo they are still sneezing and the older one seems to have a weird coughing going on like somethings stuck in him throat, but he doesn't do this all the time I've only seen and heard this a couple of times since he got the infection which is white in the corner of the eyes but still pink.
is the drooling still going on or did it just last a short time? I found this older post in the archives(above)...interesting to read that it could possibly be due to an exposure to a toxic substance.... let us know how Ozzie is doing..I sure hope you find the reason. http://www.medhelp.
She is eating well and fine in all other respects. Should i be concerned?. She has not been in kennels recently or had much contact with other dogs. We do have 3 cats though who she plays with. Many Thanks for your time.
I just wanted to say Hello! I just found this community! I have 6 cats! All but one were adopted off the streets! I am a sucker for a starving cat/kitten who shows up on my porch! Once they come inside my house, they never leave! My favorite saying is "there's always room for one more" my fear is that I'm going to end up being one of "those" cat lady's that they find dead in her house with 187 cats! UGH! My cats are: Frasier, Fred, Pudge, Calvin, Hazel, and Patches!
Hi Everyone! Welcome to Part 7! Snuggle in and make yourself at Home, eh?
- our vet took xrays and said her nasal cavities and sinuses looked cancerous because they were not mirror images from one side to the other and w/ older cats, they rule usually rule out infection. -she's been on Hill's k/d and/or a/d for the past 4 weeks -put her on another round of anitbiotics for 7 days that ended last Wed. 5/23. The sneezing and coughing stopped up until last night.
One day I broke the aquarium that they were in and put them in a box in the basement. They got loose and I couldn't find them. My mom was down there doing laundry and they stuck their heads out from under the washing machine. She was so freaked out (which surprised me because she wasn't afraid of my other reptiles) that she told me if I let the snakes go that she would buy me a guinea pig. So I did. That started the "mammal" phase of my life.
I can relate to you, in the sense that we need to be on top of our cats' condition all the time, and carefully treat it and monitor. You know about my IBD cat, and how it will be a forever condition, so I have to keep it under control. Wouldn't it be easier for me to just throw a bunch of kibbles in his bowl and leave? Instead, I have to spend time preparing his foods, get up earlier than usual, spend a lot of money on organic foods, and even more dollards on nutrients.
