My cat has a stuffy nose and watery eyes. Is there any over-the- counter medicine that I can give her to help clear her head?

For the sinus congestion you can pick up some Neosynephrine drops to help clear her nose. You can use this 3-4 times daily for days 1 and 2 and then it must be tapered thereafter.

Days 1-2: 3-4 times daily.

Days 3-5: 2 times daily.

Days 6&7: 1 time daily.

Days 7-10: Give once every other day.

For the runny eyes you can give chlorpheniramine. You can find this at your local drug store under the name brand Chlortrimeton. Her dosage would be 1/4-1/2 tablet per day.

Please let me know if further assistance is needed.
