Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 3 years ago
Friend, an occasional sneeze is normal and should not be grounds to have her seen by a veterinarian. If she develops a nasal or ocular discharge this will be consistent with a respiratory infection and should be seen by family veterinarian. For now, I would recommend to open the hot water in your bathroom and allow her to breath the steam/vapor for 3-5 minutes 2 times a day for 1-2 days; this will clear her nasal passages and help with the sneezing.
Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
