yep.

Okay great!

This sounds like an upper respiratory tract infection or possibly something stick in nose

Were these episodes the first and last?

Hold on. A call is an additional $28?? It was $5 to find out what the fees were for the info I asked for. While it would be great to talk to you by phone, I'd like a response. Oh- there it is!
He has subsequently coughed a bit more and sounds as if he's like to clear his throat. Not a hairball sound - something more resonant. he's eating and affectionate & his normal self otherwise.

Dont need to talk on phone :)

Good. I think he has something caught in his throat or perhaps lodged in his nose. Can't see anything so far. Guess he'll have to go to a vet unless you think maybe hairball meds could dislodge whatever it is?

I dont think you have to take him in yet

I would try one inch hairball remedy twice daily for ten days to see if that sorts out the hairball

Okay?

Paul

Would this work for a foreign object as well because I'm pretty sure it's not a hairball given the nose rubbing and sneezing fits?

Agreed

I felt we were dealing with two separate issues

Are the sneezing fits persisting?

Any discharge from eyes?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No more fits. No discharge. No change in personality. Only difference in his behavior was the nose rubbing - haven't seen it lately.

Not worried about that nose thing for now then

Lets focus on the possible hairball

Okay?
