Customer Question
Lewis is a 12...

Lewis is a 12 year old male, who is mostly a porch cat but he comes in during cold weather. Last two days he has evidently sneezed blood. His left nostril shows signs of blood. Other wise, he seems to be healthy. Eats well and is active.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the cat's name?

Lewis

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lewis?

He hates coming in the house and I have to nab him to get the flea stuff on him.

I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Lewis. Is he eating normally?

Blood from one nostril can mean there is something inside that nostril: a piece of plant material, a bleeding benign polyp. It can be very hard to look inside a cat's nostril; you need sedation and special tools.

You can try giving him nose drops such as Little Noses, or other over the counter nose drops for children, to see if that helps.

How is Lewis doing? I hope you were able to see my responses.

Please let me know if this was helpful and if I can answer anything else.
