Did the Benadryl help Ollie at all?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
he wont take the pills and the children liquid I don't think I give him enough but he fights with it. he has dander I will put salmon oil on his food once in awhile. he is sneezing not all the time just once in awhile and he scratches and he doesn't have fleas he;s an indoor cat
Expert:  Rebecca replied 9 months ago.

You can try children's nose drops, like Little Noses, for the sneezing.

Fish oil given regularly can help with inflammation, allergies, and dry skin.

Just because he is indoor doesn't mean he does not have fleas; I might consider putting some Frontline on him.
