Sneezing in a cat

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing in a cat


Avatar n tn You should bring her in to your veterinarian for a check-up. Your cat should be examined at least once a year although I now recommend every six months. Changes in cats can be very subtle and they need regular examinations. Updating her vaccinations may help with her problems as well.
Avatar f tn this is a human amino acid but is safe for use in cats because this one is wheat,gluten, soy, milk, egg and fish FREE. it is a pure powder so much less is needed than any a Vet clinic would prescribe. Start with just a little under 1/2 teas.(approx 1000mg) daily for one week only, either mixed in the food or liquefied and given via dropper.
611067 tn?1458595083 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 I agree with what others said, Good luck - we have a cat who has allergies and we think she might actually be allergic to the other cats - LOL! But, she's doing very well even with the allergies.
Avatar m tn We just got a cat from the animal shelter about a month ago and it sneezes a lot but does not have a runny nose or watering eyes. The cat I think is about 5 years old. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I NEVER sneezed unless I had a bad cold. With W/D I had sneezing fits at least 5-6 times a day. The W/D sneezing stopped about day 6 for me.
Avatar m tn this is caused by a virus, an otherwise healthy cat can get over this in a few days however a cat with a weak immune system can develop into a URI/ upper respiratory infection and than it would require antibiotics....or it will progress into a serious condition. but never use an antibiotic without CONFIRMATION of an infection it can lead to antibiotic always be cautious. I can send you some names of supplements you can use to help support his immune system.
Avatar m tn she began sneezing alot and after many Vet visits was sent to a teaching hospital in the city where they did xrays and found a nasal tumor. they told me there was nothing they could do that would work as almost ALL nasal tumors were cancer and very difficult to treat in that area. I took her home, soon she stopped eating as her smell diminished...cats will not eat if they cannot smell their food. and shortly after that the sneezes turned bloody.
199954 tn?1294948269 Your cats runny eyes and sneezing may very well be associated with Feline Upper Respiratory Complex which is usually associated with the viruses contained in the cat annual vaccination series offered by veterinarians. Seeing your vet and being sure your cat is up to date on shots would be a wise choice.
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 f tn My poor cat Roux will not stop sneezing and I feel so bad for her - she just looks miserable. I took her to the vet for something completely unrelated only two days ago. She had a slight infection in her nail bed. They gave her a shot of penicillin and azium (steroid), gave me antibiotics for home (amoxclav 1ml 2x daily). At first she seemed fine, acting like she normally does. She is a very cuddly and, at times, crazy kitty... Playing and running around.
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 m tn My best guess, dust. Do you have pets like a cat or a dog ? Nothing wrong with that. We have a cat. All I am saying is pets should not be in ones bedroom to sleep. I am actually allergic to house dust . I have been known to sneeze profusely when emptying our vacuum cleaner. Hopefully I have given you some possible sources of your sneezing.
Avatar f tn If it isn't a mass outbreak of respitory infection (or one of the illnesses that cause respitory infections) then it could be a mold issue in the barn. Unfortunately, it IS a barn. So it depends on what you've got stored in thier. Hay, animal feces, etc... all of these have potential molds in them that can cause sneezing and runny eyes. Even the wood can mold if old and subject to moisture over time. So you'll have to assess the situation carefully to see if this is an issue.
Avatar f tn Nasal polyp is also a possibility, foreign body in the nasal cavity or a serious tooth problem. According to Susan Leck, a DVM who has seen cases like this before, if the teeth are bad, they can be cleaned and pulled if necessary. A nasal or sinus flush may be needed, and xrays of the sinuses are a must.
Avatar f tn My dog may have caught the odd whiff on me I am sure, but never breathed clouds of smoke in the room. My mother used to give her cat a little lick of butter when the cat was hacking from a fur ball. To help it pass through easier. I am not suggesting you give him butter, as dogs (and cats actually!) are lactose intolerant. 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.
Avatar f tn 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!?
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 my cat has been sneezing continously for a week and now his eye has started watering, his nose sounds runny.He doesnt go outside.Is there something i can do to help him or do i need to go to the vet and what do you think it is?
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn It went away on its own although I did give him antibiotics (a waste of money since the kitten gave URI to my older cat, I didn’t give my older cat ANYTHING and now they’re both fine) So, it may go away on its own. How long has the cat been sneezing? I know it’s sad to see them sneeze so many times in a row. Seeing that in my kitten made me pretty sad. But you definitely want to let the vet know that treatment didn’t work. Do you remember if the vet told you what type of URI your cat has?
Avatar n tn yesterday I noticed my cat sneezing a lot.. he would sniffle a bunch.. then sneeze hard.. he sneezed periodically through the night.. today he is still sneezing.. and I noticed clear liquid tears in his left eye when he is not sneezing his breathing seems normal.. and he is eating and drinking ok.. I think he seems a little more lethargic than normal.. he is a year and a half.. he had all his shots last year and it is time for his booster but I haven't had a chance to take him in yet.
Avatar m tn 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.
7532341 tn?1391697586 People food is just not good enough except once in a great while for a treat. My cat loves Crab from the can, and only gets it on special occasions . Keep us posted on the situation and Good luck.
Avatar f tn These cats must be on special diets. An even better bet for your cat would be to give your cat 1/8 of a human dose of a human antioxidant supplement containing vitamin C (Vitamin C is one of the antioxidants). I have found antioxidants to be very helpful for upper respiratory and other infections.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn my cat is one year old and is an indoor/outdoor cat who usually has A LOT of personality. He has been sneezing and wheezing and meowing funny. He acts like he doesn't feel well. He also has one eye that he isn't opening and when I could look at it, it looks as if it is changing colors. Please tell me how to make HamBone better.
Avatar m tn I don't think yr kitty can wait any longer for a Vet visit, or at least while there with the male cat ask yr Vet to presciribe an antibiotic for the queen, sounds very much like an upper respiratory infection (UTI) if left unchecked it could become fatal, it can also spread to the little kittens This was likely brought on by the stress of birthing and the surgery combined. Tell me why ur waiting until later to give her the better canned food diet?
1836925 tn?1318365873 I have a 14 year old Persian,female. I have noticed lately that she is sneezing a lot and her nose is very stuffy and breathing very noisy. I'm wondering if this could be a result of the pushed in nose that Persians have? I do clean her eyes and tried to clean her nose, to no avail. I would appreciate any suggestions.
