i have a 12 year old tabby. lately he has been sneezing alot and has had eye and nasal discharge. i thought he was getting better and then he started sneezing again last night. i really cant afford a trip to the vet but i dont want to wait and have an illness get worse. my luck i would go to the vet and they say he just has an allergy and to go home after paying them 100. has anyone else had this happen with their kitty?
yes my eight year old cat recently had like a cold with a stuffy nose and sneezing i called a vet just to see,they told me not to bring him in untill hes not eating or drinking that he probably has a cold.he got better a week later,i just gave him extra attention and got him can food,he should be fine as long as hes eating and drinking and not loosing weight.just use your best judgement..i think hell be fine.

I agree that it sound like an upper respiratory infection but you need to get the cat to the vet. If it is a URI the cat will need meds. I have seen cats die from not getting treated for this. It is basically a kitty cold but it can get bad. It could be allergies but it sounds like even if it is that meds are needed regardless. I have a cat that had allergies and would get allergic conguctivits that I had to treat.
