Sounds good.
Cat Vet: Cher, Feline Specialist replied 4 months ago

Hello, again.

Did you notice the sour smell on Jameson's nose after you started him on the Canna-pet?

Is the Canna-pet a chew or liquid?

Does he have any other symptoms, like sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, eye discharge, oral problems that cause him pain while eating or drinking?

Is he eating, drinking and eliminating as usual? Is he playing normally and breathing normally?

Thanks for all your additional information and after you reply, please allow me a little while to compose and send my answer.

Best wishes,

Cher

It’s a pill but I haven’t noticed any symptoms. He was just boarding at a cat hotel. His eyes have some eye gunk under them. Could he have kennel cough?
Cat Vet: Cher, Feline Specialist replied 4 months ago

Hi again, and thanks for your very helpful reply.

If he was just boarded at a cat hotel, he could have been exposed to various illnesses that were carried by other cats. An upper respiratory infection would be the most common, however, the sour smell you noticed could be from the cat hotel, itself---from bedding, litter, toys, etc. that he was exposed to, there.

It's not uncommon for cats to have gunk in the corners of their eyes or under their eyes, every now and then, but if he has it all the time, and you only noticed it after his boarding experience, he should be checked out in person by his vet. If he's not coughing, he should not have kennel cough, which is called 'Bortadella' in cats. Kennel cough is caused when the Bordetella bronchiseptica species of bacteria infects the back of the mouth and throat. This is very contagious, when an uninfected cat is exposed to an infected one.

Make an appointment for him to be evaluated by his vet, so you can get a definite diagnosis and treatment, if needed. If Bortadella or any other bacterial infection is diagnosed, he will need to be treated with antibiotics.

I hope all will be well with Jameson and please let me know how he's doing and what the vet's findings are. Thanks!

Your satisfaction is my ultimate goal and I welcome any follow-up questions you may have on this subject, at no additional charge.

At the conclusion of our correspondence, your 5-star rating will be most appreciated, as this will enable me to continue to send quality answers to additional clients and receive recognition from the website for my assistance.

Best wishes,

Cher

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
