Customer Question

My cat has one eye shut and is sneezing, shaking his head and jumping up suddenly and sleeping all day. He was boarded for 10 days about two weeks ago. Should I take him to the emergency room or wait for the vet in the morning

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
If you open Max's eye, is there any clouding, hazing, redness, or damage to the eye?
Any discharge from his eyes or nose? What color?
Are his gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
Is he eating and drinking?
Does he sound very congested or stuffed up?
