Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years.Terri is offline at the moment but I would be happy to help you.
Sneezing can be caused by many things. Some of the most common problems that can effect all cats in the home at the same time are:
* The Herpes virus
( not contagious to humans) .This a viral infection that is very contagious to other cats so not at all uncommon to see multiple cats in a household have problems at the same time.
For this we suggest starting a L lysine supplement . You can get this at any health food store or pet shop. 500mgs per day for 7 days then 250 mgs per day .
You can also get this in treat form and one treat contains the daily recommended amount.' Click here for these treats
* Environmental allergies or irritation to something in the house such as carpet/fabric sprays,air fresheners, perfumes etc
You can try over the counter Chlor-Trimeton at a dose of 2-4 mgs once per day if you feel this could be allergies. Click here for more on this
To help relieve nasal irritation you can use saline nose drops. We recommend Little Noses for infants. 2-3 drops in each side of the nose twice daily.
Sneezing can also be the first sign of a bacterial upper respiratory infection. If anyone develops any green or yellow discharge from the nose or eyes, stops eating or seems to decline in any way they should be seen by a vet.As long as this is just an occasional sneeze then I would not be to worried but I would try to see if you can pin point anything in the house that may be causing a problem, If they start sneezing more often then using teh saline and the L lysine may help.
Kennel cough is not something that we see spread from dogs to cats so I would not be worried about that.
I hope this helps. Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to continue.
