Sneezing cat syndrome

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing cat syndrome

sneeze

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.
152660 tn?1291759171 It's still likely the herpes virus, that's the only symptoms my cat gets as well. Get some lysine powder and sprinkle a bit in his food, for an adult 11 lb cat 1000 mg for a week or so is usual, than cut back. But for a tiny kitten I guess 1/4 the amount...like 250 mg(?) just guessing by weight. Order it thru iherb.com brand name Carlson Labs. That's human form, cheaper an that one is safe for cats there are no additives.
Avatar f tn daily two weeks ago. Her symptoms are few but include a thick, green nasal discharge from the right nostril, sneezing, and periodically watery discharge from both eyes. The symptoms have waxed and waned several times disappearing completely for nearly two weeks only to return. She is otherwise playful with a hearty appetite, excellent stools, nice coat, good gums and teeth. My most recent encounter with the vet left her with the diagnosis of "chronic viral syndrome.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn Vet doesn't acknowledge Horner's Syndrome symptoms. Thinks the cat has an aversion to eating (the cat WANTS to eat). The cat's pupil is still constricted, but the third eyelid is not as pronounced as it had been - vet said stop the prednisone eye drops. Still can't eat dry food & eye is still sunken. His voice is getting better, but not quite the same. This is no eating aversion.
Avatar f tn Wow, Linda. I've never heard of Horner's Syndrome in a cat before. I've heard of it in people, but I forgot what it was about. I did a quick research on it and found a decent site. Check this out when you get the chance. It seems unusual to me. I'm sure it freaked you out! I know I would've been freaked! By the way, I did read that this could go away on it's own!! Fingers crossed for Ozzie!! If it IS sinus issues, I wonder if they make inhaled steroids for cats.
Avatar f tn Young kittens, especially strays frequently are affected by several viruses that together are called the Feline Upper Respiratory Syndrome. If the infection is already in the recovery phase the sneezing may persist but the kitten is no longer feeling ill. Viruses are generally not treated with specific medications but rather with supportive care, which sometimes includes antibiotics for secondary bacterial infections.
563774 tn?1216296518 If this is the case, the allergy, cold or sinusitis must be treated first. Cat allergy is often accompanied by rash or redness, coughing, wheezing, chest tightening, itching, nasal congestion, rash, watering eyes, sneezing and similar symptoms. Are you having such kind of symptoms? In allergy to wood, there is swelling or stiffness in your hands, perhaps associated with a "heavy feeling" in your arms, severe headaches and visual disturbances, a rapid pulse, dysphagia, and diarrhea.
Avatar f tn At the shelter they told me to watch for kennel cough. She is sneezing and coughing. Today I noticed a runny eye, and she seems unactive (especially for a kitten). I can not take her to the vet or back to the spca. I adopted her at a shelter that is 4 hours away. I went to the feed store to get amoxicilyn, but the said u can not get it in ca.
Avatar m tn -Tender spot on left shoulder--noticed this recently -Gallstones (silent--showed on on recent renal ultrasound for my stones) -Exposure to cat scratch--had one Bartonella antigen test after a round of antibiotics, which was negative--rough housed over past year and got many scratches from cat. Cat shows signs of systemic disease (eye leak and long sneezing fits--sometimes 20+ times). -Skin issues About 6-7 weeks ago, I had generalized itching for weeks, but it went away eventually.
Avatar f tn The yawning got especially bad when i was around people so i though it was an anxiety thing and i also got sick during withdrawal so thats what i thought the sneezing was from. I almost relapsed when i got sick because it was just too much to handle for me but my hubby helped me through it, thank god.

Avatar m tn The lightheaded feeling usually is paired up with a tightness in my chest, making it seem like I'm having a hard time breathing. I've also been sneezing more than usual. I have been staying relaxed since this started and haven't committed myself to anything that would cause alot of anxiety. I recently had tests done at my doctor's, my vitals and blood all came back very good.
Avatar n tn I’m a runner, usually run 25-30 miles per week. I do have allergies. Ragweed, pollen, cat dander, and even dust produce symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, etc. Two weeks later, I was still not feeling better. My burning throat, lungs, and airway persisted, and I was still feeling very run-down and achy. My primary care doc prescribed a Z pack that did not help. Lung x-ray returned clear, some standard blood work came back ok. I had not run in 2 weeks.

Avatar f tn At first I thought people were sniffling because they could smell my scalp odor, but later realized I had started to make peoples nose runy. A runy nose soon turned into sneezing, sneezing to coughing, and now flu like symptoms! Yes flu like symptoms. Whats even more worse is that I some how get people that are far away sick as well! My gf would be in another town and I would talk on the phone with her and could hear her sniffling.
5886089 tn?1376166477 -) As far as your question, if the kitten is not having any health issues besides not growing, have you considered that she might just BE a small cat and not grow alot? I have a cat like this, and people mistake her for being a kitten all the time. She normally ranges between 4 and 5 lbs. Yet she is at least five years old that I know of.

Avatar n tn After things got more advanced, surgeons started working on alleged herniated discs and x-rays made things look suspicious. Then CAT and MRI scans showed up and they could look at all the arthritic bones of the spine better and it looked interesting. They could see bulges, arthritis, etc. and the "old idea of herniated discs" held on and so more surgery was done, again and again, but it is only rarely that people get better a short time after surgery.
Avatar m tn The weird thing is if I prevent the hyoid from going up, which is normal during swallowing, by restraining it with my fingers, much of the pain in swallowing is alleviated. After sneezing (normally once or 2x's day) or blowing my nose there is excruciating pain there and radiates up the back left side of my neck. There is mind blowing pain to swallow anything right after that and because of that, swallowing is almost impossible for at least a half hour.
Avatar f tn When I was a child we had cats up until I was 12 and I never had a problem, now when im in the same room that a cat has been in recently I start sneezing and rubbing my eyes. I will definitely keep searching for answers and your list has given me some good insight into what I should be asking my doctor for.
Avatar n tn I quickly learned that the allergy blood test is only 50 percent accurate so do this diet helped me really figure this out, Anyhow I was so lucky to find this out because it quickly narrows down the cause I had no idea how sick food allergies can make you I think this was a contributing factor in my case , but not the root case The other piece I want to add is my ENT doctor told me to NOT let the cat sleep at the food of our bed because she has cat dander can cause inflammation of sinuses, re
Avatar n tn He has put a little scope down my throat and saw nothing. Then I was sent for a CAT Scan with contrast and also nothing came up. Nothing abnormal appears in the throat or frontal neck area. It's frustrating because I know I'm not imagining the pain. I just kind of learned to live with it. I've had it for over a year now, and it hasn't really gotten worse.
4231827 tn?1396847677 I went to the ER and after a CAT-scan they found nothing and attributed it to a possible pinched nerve and referred me to a neurologist. I was never able to go and the numbness went away almost at once until this month. Two weeks ago I started to notice a horrible pinching feeling in between my shoulder and neck. The pain radiated down under my arm and through to my fingers. That turned into an irritating tingling sensation that I could not control or comfort.

Avatar f tn ) I'ts been over 3 years that I've dealt with people having allergic reactions around me. These include sniffling, discomfort, occasional sneezing, and A LOT of coughing. I've read and looked up many of these threads/forums, but I was hesitant to join one because I feel like it's all in my head. However, as a teenager in high school, I'm required to attend school daily and events, so I've been around diverse groups and crowds of people.
Avatar n tn I just started having these symtoms this week. I have a cat so at first I thought her cat hair were finally getting to me. But I just experienced it while over here cleaning my new apartment.I havenr brought my cat here yet. It really feels like there's hair in my throat and all over my face. I'm glad to find other people with the same symptoms but it ***** that no one knows what it is.
Avatar n tn Over a period of several months I worked my way down and finally quit the Neurontin. The day I didn't take the last pill, I began sneezing uncontrollably. After several hours I was a bit worried and took another 400 mg., and the sneezing stopped--and started again as soon as that dose wore off. Luckily the sneezing went away after a day or two. But then the night sweats began . . .
