sneeze

611067 tn?1458595083 Yes, you'd need a vet to approve the Benadryl. 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!
Avatar f tn My cat is 7y/o and sneezes sometimes like a machine gun. Most of the time when he is relaxing I can hear him breathing, sometimes like a wheezing. Could he have allergies? If so what type of meds are given?
Avatar m tn Sorry to read all of this, but great advice given by the group. My advice is to get an x-ray because that is the only way to see what is going on - it will reveal weather there is a tumor or a dental issue. All the meds for something you are not sure of could be simply delaying things and not relieving the pain. An x-ray was the only way I found out my cat had liver cancer (my previous cat) and it's the definitive proof you need. Have you had blood work done recently?
Avatar f tn Hello, I'm bit desperate, nobody give me any answer and I asked a lot of vets until today, my male cat, now 8 months old, have often episodes of sneezing with pretty consist result which come out, was also with bit of blood sometimes, he was smallest of all, and first 5 months of his life he was out, we take it in our home when other cats was taken by neighbors, he got trouble with eyes and we cure him (eyes clustered).
Avatar f tn Now my cat is sneezing less...but still sneezing now and again so I am not sure what to think. She seems normal otherwise (hard to tell if she is having extra cat naps since she is a cat who snoozes). Maybe it was the cleaning products? If it is an infection, what would be the chances only she would have it and not my other cat? They both hang out together and both are indoor cats.....
Avatar n tn but, i moved into a forest a few years later! and i love it here... i have 2 big oaks in my front yard too,i'm on a pie shape lot in a court yard and we back up to 50 acreas of woodland/wetland so it's nature city here...we have alot of pines too... if i have to live here in illinois, this is where i'd want to be...but, my heart is really where the hurricain just hit...pan handle of florida...our favorite vacation spot in u.s.we were just planning to go there last weekend when the thing hit.
7532341 tn?1391697586 They are 9 years old and the rescue cat is 12. The rescue cat does not meow but he makes funny noises. 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.
Avatar f tn But a little light oil like olive oil with honey might help. Be careful and don't give him too much. Too much fatty or oily stuff CAN cause some dogs to get pancreatitis. You could mention it to your vet and see what he says?
Avatar f tn thanks so much, now everything is so much clearer. Antibiotics are for cats bought in a vet pharmacy (anterobe). He doesn't cough but sneezes. At the beginning he eyes had yellow stuff but now this is solved. Lucifer (the cat's name) now is a bit happier and starts also being the same old buddy. I will though ask the vet on monday about the immune system. Has though always gone through all vaccinations. bye. I'll soon post a picture of him.
518117 tn?1429279873 I am doing so-so, my friends here on the cat forum. Surely miss my Hisse so very much. Still cry everyday. Have been really down. I know it takes time when you lose something you love so. I though now got my Paradise. And I love her dearly like I did my Hiss. I want to help Paradise with this sneezing. And I know my friends here on the cat forum, just may have some good suggestions for me.
672939 tn?1227301107 my cat is 16 years old and was doing very well until the end of August. All of a sudden she started to lose her hair around her eyes and ears and it was crusty and bloody. I took her to the vet spent almost $200 and he said her immune system was attacking her own body. He gave her steroids and eye cream and antibiotic. That didn't help. I took her back and spent more money (which I wouldn't mind if I had it) and this time he said she was allergic to fleas. SHE DIDN'T HAVE FLEAS!!!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn Getting house ready to sell, I am going to do one thing every day, so that at the end of the month it should all be done, yet not be overwhelming. Girl when I open my closet it is a nightmare, yet my counters are sparklingLOL!!!!! I think it will be very cleansing when it is over with but still not looking forward to it. So many closets to clean, hubby is helping also, he is doing so good, I sure am grateful for that. I am also grateful to you to!!! Going for a snack I think cheese crackers!!!
1756384 tn?1312565754 Even though I vacuum and dust continually!, cat hair gets up my nose, in my throat and "jumps" on my legs, makes me itch on my face and also seems to cause my itching uinder my breast area, around where my underwear where it is tight around the creases of my skin( inside thigh area for example). It also makes my mood suck! I have been on Singulair for one week. daily saline nose rinses, veramist nose spray. It seemed to help a little bit but now not much.
Avatar n tn 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. I have tried Veramyst and Ipratropium Bromide nasal sprays along with nasal flushing, all they do is bring on an attack.
Avatar m tn Now it is two weeks now..I have been giving my cat the drops. The sneezing has not really gone a way yet...I called the vet and the vet lab worker told me to give it more time and to finish the medicine. The vet gave me two bottles to finish... I am really worried about this whole thing ...Hoping that Clindamycin will work...If the Clindamycin does not work...is there another medicine that could do the trick?
Avatar f tn My cat is a male Siamese/rag doll pure mix and about 4 months old. He has been sneezing consistently for the past week. There as I just noticed today twice that there is blood in his feces and that his feces is also very soft. I haven't seen him once have hard feces and I don't know if that's not healthy. I have another worry he hates to eat his soft foods and we've been trying all different kinds but he'll eat anything he sees u eat.
372900 tn?1315515902 This sounds like a combination of the infection and stress taking its toll on her. The puppy is just too much for her right now when she's trying to get over an infection. Can you separate them for a while? It's best for you to introduce them very slowly. Right now, I think that you're doing the right thing by taking her back to the vet! They can make sure that the infection hasn't come back.
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 I can't imagine what this could have turned in to had we waited another day to take him in. The vet is working with me and my financing, and my babies are both going back in tomorrow. He, for all day hospitalization, just like today, and she for her followup. We are both very hopeful, and I know I pamper my cats, but I'm sure we're quickly approaching the pampering record. I appreciate your thoughts and will be sure to update as this progresses.
Avatar f tn The pulling out in clumps is what my elderly cat was doing. If it is nearly infected but not infected yet then the steroid 'may' be the only option altho it is a great risk. The tranquilizer is not going to help itchy skin and cats often react badly to tranqulizers. My old cat had the steroid shot and it lasted 2 or 3 months then she started pulling again and I had to get another one but BOTH vets didn't want to do it because of the danger.
Avatar n tn I usually recommend going to an animal hospital, as they have large, experienced staffs that have dealt with pretty much everything you can think of. Try not to worry too much! I know it's distressing, as I have been through similar situations. The best thing is just to take it one step at a time. Please keep us posted and please don't hesitate to ask anything at all.
Avatar f tn Hi Linda, Probably cut back the Prednisone too soon. Prednisone is an anti-inflammatory and appetite stimulant . My cat has had asthma and takes a steroid in an inhaler so it goes right into the lungs not systemic. She is taking a drug call Budesonide right now for IBD. It keeps her eating without her getting sick and throwing up. She also does not seem to need her inhaler as much. Your cat may just need to take the Pren for a little while longer until the inflammation clears up completely.
1608004 tn?1390774590 he is not eating and is drooling (I had a cat before and she had this so I recognize it).he was also sneezing a bit but not too much. What can I do for Rocky my little black polydactle I am worried about him but what can I do for a feral cat as he will not let me get close to him.
Avatar n tn I hand raised my cat since the first days of her life. She is a 4 year old female, and very attached to me, as I to her. She is not neutered. Since a kitten she was fearless. There are instances that she becomes ultra aggressive, at the levels that feral cats become aggressive when their life is threatened. These cases are 3-5 per year but each year they become more intense.
1590008 tn?1297043641 It is not red of dry or irritated looking in any way, there is just no hair or very little. She is an indoor cat and does not have fleas, mites, or anything else of that sort. The funny thing is that I have only seen her hack up a furball about 10 times her entire lifetime. It seems to be a psychological issue as her toys, litter, food, scratching post, and bed are still the same. I bought the feliway plug in which has definitely calmed her down.
7627194 tn?1396399344 I found a cat running around my barn a few days ago and took her in. I'm guessing she's around 6 months to a year old. She's pretty thin. She's been having really soft stools (not watery, just thin) but I can't tell if it's from worms or from the food I've given her. I don't know that she's ever had cat food before so is there anything I can do to help ease her into it? Her anus looks swollen and a little red as well. I think her glands are impacted. How can I help her with that?
Avatar m tn they are loaded with chemicals that are hard on us let alone an animal with much smaller lungs. this is called an environmental allergy or atopy. also the new cat food. yes d/c immediately.....there is something in one or both of these items that your cat is highly sensitive to. with us an allergy or sensitivity usually shows as a respiratory ailment such as sneezing/coughing while a cat it will almost always affect their skin. I will send you some info on that.
1232362 tn?1333139006 powder -SOURCE NATURALS powder if not avail at a local Health Food store I order often from iherb, their prices are very good and the shipping is cheap too...they are an excellent company, I have placed many orders from them for all sorts of vitamins and supplements for my boys... http://www.iherb.com/Carlson-Labs-L-Lysine-500-mg-300-Capsules/15135?
365714 tn?1292202708 The black one is Sahib and the tabby + white one is Waldo. Waldo is my cat and snugglebuddy. Sahib is grandma's cat. He can be a snugglebuddy too but he may spontaniously nip you or try to pull your hair with his teeth. :P Judging by the way they are posed in my pictures, I think Waldo was trying to kick him but was too tired to carry through.
