First of all my cat is

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your cat?

Hello, thank-you for taking my question. I have an otherwise healthy 18 yr. old domestic shorthair cat, Snarley. He is an indoor cat- we have 2 other cats: an 11 y/o Albino shorthair and a 2.5 month

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Snarley?

I can’t think of anything except about 9 months ago, he was treated for an abscess in his tail. That cleared up and he was much better. He also sounds very congested- I can hear him wheeze slightly.

He is eating about 40% less food than usual. We feed him Ian’s grain free cat food.

Good afternoon, JACustomer. Can you clarify your concern? Is it the decrease in appetite and wheezing sounds? Are you seeing any sneezing? Mucous from the eyes or nose?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
He is wheezing and sneezing quite a bit. He also has clear drainage from his eyes. My 11 y/o cat is also sneezing intermittently.
Cat Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 10 months ago

Is the discharge pigmented at all or completely transparent?
