Cat sneezing blood veterinarian

Common Questions and Answers about Cat sneezing blood veterinarian


372900 tn?1315515902 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.
Avatar f tn I am going through the same thing with my 9 yr old cat. Blood work great, waiting on urinalysis results - no definitive diagnosis at this point.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn Whether it is small, or a large amount of blood the cat needs to go to the vet. I've had cats my entire life-35 yrs, and I have never ever seen that before. I seriously would freak if I saw my cat w/ a nosebleed. If your cat's an outdoor cat, this could be a sign of some trauma to the head. Something could've gotten in the nose. These are the possibilities that I could come up with. Do me a favor, if you find out what it is please tell us on this forum.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 1. Nutrition – This doesn’t include food allergies; but diets containing lower-quality nutrients are at the root of many an itchy pet. We know that good nutrition is the foundation of health, and the corollary is also true: cheap ingredients (such as corn and by-products) make for expensive vet bills. Unfortunately, even vets tend to be poorly educated on nutrition, and often recommend grocery store or “prescription”-type diets.

She also said to buy some Zyrtec and give Akira 1/4 tablet each day for her allergies.
Avatar n tn Lola is an 11month old lab/hound mix. On May 10th she started sniffling and sneezing. Over a few days she developed hives on her snout, swollen glands under her arms, and congestion. After two weeks of cephalexin the hives went down, as well as her swollen glands. However, she became extremely lethargic, loss of appetite, weight loss, and hair loss/skin lesions. She was then started on a two week dose of doxy followed by two weeks of zenaquin.
Avatar f tn I'm not a Dr but I was wondering if you should get a check up with blood work, just to be sure nothing else is going on. 20 lbs in 6 months is alot to loose.
