Have you had Mittens since she was a baby? If so did she have a respiratory infection as a baby?

Huge poops - we give her digestive enzymes to help
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
She’s probably been having sneezing fits for 6-9 months at this point. We assumed
It was just seasonal allergies but it’s stuck around

Does she has loose stool or just large poops?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question

How often do the sneezing fits occur?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
She has both loose stoo and huge poops. The digestive enzymes help solidify things.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Sneezing fits occur a few times a day. Like 5-10 times a day

How long has this been going on? Does she has exocrine pancreatic insufficiency?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Her eye waters too - she kinda rattled when she breathes too - my wife wonders if she has something obstructing her nose
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Not sure about the pancreatic issue

gotcha......so I suspect she has chronic rhinitis from a latent virus, most likely herpes...

Here is what I would do....

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Sounds like antibiotics?

Order DMG from amazon. I will get you a link, it is good for immune system....

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question

also see if your vet has the intranasal CVR vaccine and have it given to your cat soon and then repeat in 1 month once.....then 1 month after that do the intranasal bordetella.....

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Sounds good. thanks

This will temporarily make her worse but will provide good response in about 6-12 months...

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question

Can I answer any other questions for you?

Which will make it worse?

Both can make it worse , both vaccines temporarily...because they are challenging the immune system right where the problem is but in the long run your cat will be worlds better..
