Hi this is Dr Hill. Please give me a moment to type my response.

Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 10 months ago.

So a couple of follow up questions. How long has Max been sneezing? Is there any nasal discharge? If so is it from one side or two sides?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No significant discharge in general. The sneezes are wet. His eyes are often watery. Going on for months.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 10 months ago.

Have you made any major changes in the household (construction,etc). Does he go outside?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Indoor only. No changes other than he's on a diet for kidney disease.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 10 months ago.

You may want to try an antihistamine in case there are allergies.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thanks. We will try that. We forgot to mention to vet last time so I'll follow up there too. Thanks

chlorpheniramine seems to be the best antihistamine to use in cats. Please feel free to ask additional questions. If you are satisfied with my answer, then please take time to rate my response. Take care
