Sneezing in older cats

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing in older cats


Avatar n tn 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?
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 m tn Well , Eye, I just don't know what to tell you!! You and your family are so very kind to take in needy cats and kittens. Unfortunately the more cats you have the more chance there is of sickness in the group. Especially virus's that are very contagious. Please thing about putting any of your cats down, unless the vet saysthere is no hope of them getting better. As long as they may be able to recover they should be allowed to live.....
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
326352 tn?1310997895 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?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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! Wow girl u have done so much on day 2 that I don't think I could have handled so do not ever say you're not a strong lady!! I hate all your primping got washed away lol! That's okay, I'm sure you'll be beautified for work tomorrow!! I'll be thinking about ya! I know you're gonna do great! I'm SO proud of u!
Avatar n tn I too have had these symptoms for many years, at least 5. And it's getting worse as I'm getting older. (I'm going to be 51 in a month). I would get horrible migraines every month for the past year, 18 to 20 times in a month. They have been helped by going to a Orthospinologist. Now I still get them, but more like 5-10 times a month. I've seen a TMJ specialist who is making me a dental guard to wear at night as I have a tendency to clench my teeth.
387767 tn?1345875627 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.
Avatar f tn 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!
585414 tn?1288944902 ), 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?
537731 tn?1268268886 Througout the day I have to wash out eyes, out my fingers in eye to remove the stuff- I know this can't be good but it happens so often I have to. It is clear, and runs in the bottom of eye, on eye, top of inside eye, long stringy goo. I can lightly wet a cutip- put in inside corner of eye and spin. The stuff goes from top to bottom. It is such an irritant. What could this be- I went to dr before and they said it was allergies. All the time I dont think so.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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...
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar n tn I've had numerous neurological symptoms. I do have a lump in my skull in my forehead called a Haemangioma of the Skull which caused severe pain and also spots on my brain MRIs so I am not sure what my problem is. My best wishes to you and I hope you find out what the problem is, it's very hard to be suffering so much all the time. keep looking for answers there must be one out there.
1101325 tn?1321256673 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.
Avatar n tn 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!!!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn The only things I've ever known I had an allergy to were Cats and Cashews because I'm basically just screwed if I eat Cashews, and my eyes always get insanely itchy around Cats. And it's not consistent with the Cats either. Sometimes I can hang out with them and be fine. It's weird. I also had a CT of sinuses done and they concluded Chronic Sinusitis and Deviated Septum. As far as treatments go, I was put on Bucosinide (oral steroid for EE) for about 2 months and saw 0 improvement.
Avatar f tn 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!
7627194 tn?1396399344 nothing to be concerned about, quite common with cats born from infected mothers or cats from shelters... My older boy is a carrier and the new kitten I recently took in also is a 'suspect' its common to see the runny eyes...and if it gets worse it can turn into a full blown upper respiratory infection that (at that point) would need antibiotics...but for now all you need to do is support her immune system than she should be able to fight this off herself.
541150 tn?1306037443 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
203342 tn?1328740807 Being that it’s Winter now and colder I wouldn’t think I’d be reacting to things growing or dying, though I do get seasonal allergies. I’ve been tested in the past for dogs and cats and did react, especially to cats, and I do have dogs and a cat but I’ve had them for several years and I don’t usually hold the cat because I’ve noticed I’ll get really congested around her and get a rash on my forearms.
