My cat has been sneezing since Friday early morning. Multiple sneezes at a time. He's also jerking his head a bit not often. It doesn't seem like he has any discharge or anything. He is 4. My other cat seems fine.

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

He is still sneezing today. His name is ***** ***** he is a domestic short hair.

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

He is still eating, just not a lot, he's still using the litter box, it's just not as full as it normally would be after 2 days.

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. It sounds like Harry has an upper respiratory infection based on what you're describing. I would recommend taking him in to the vet to get him started on some antibiotics on Monday, but in the meantime, you can give him some Benadryl (1mg/lb) every 12 hours to help with the sneezing and inflammtion in the nose. You can also take him into the bathroom with the shower running for 10 minutes to help clear his sinuses. I would feed him wet food for a few days as the mucous clears as well.
