Customer Question

I have a new year old cat. He was well treated and in excellent health....from ASPCA. But he started sneezing a couple of days ago and he sneezed out brownish mucus a few moments ago. What should I do? Good appetite and energy.

I would be patient with him. The feline herpesvirus (FHV-1) is the most common of the infectious agents in ASPCA cats and the great majority of cats will remiss unaided within 2-3 weeks. I rarely treat these cats unless they become inappetent and require supplemental fluids which I give subcutaneously by needle and then send home a syringeable convalescent food such as Hill's a/d. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
