Hello. This is Dr. Hill. How long has Slip been sneezing? Is she eating normally? Any weight loss or other health issues?

i just noticed it this morning yes she is eating no weight loss no other health issures
Cat Veterinarian: Kelly Hill, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Okay. Most upper respiratory issues in cats are associated with viral upper respiratory infections. Did Slip ever have respiratory issues when she was younger? It is not uncommon for viral infections to remain dormant and then flare up in times of stress. There is also the possibility of pathology in the nasal cavity. Is the discharge from one side or both? Does there appear to be any swelling on her face?
