Our pets are our babies and it is enough for one of them to cough for us to be in trouble, should I call the vet? Should I take her to the emergency room? Now winter is coming, temperatures are dropping and we all, humans and animals alike, end up noticing it in the form of colds and, even in autumn, we suffer some allergies. But now, should I worry if my cat sneezes? We always say that prevention is better, and a visit to the veterinarian is never too much, they are there for that, but first of all, do not be alarmed, a sneeze can be due to many reasons.
What is hidden behind a sneeze?
Behind a sneeze may hide an allergic reaction, for example, to the strong smell of a perfume, or some irritant agent, a defensive reflex action, if for example, your cat has breathed dust, a simple cold, or something more serious, such as pneumonia.
When a cat sneezes once, there is no reason to worry. But if he sneezes again later, we should pay attention to the animal’s signals. Check to see if you have changed the brand of litter, if you have changed his blanket or toys, or if you have used a different cleaning product, as this may be due to an allergic reaction.
Cats also sneeze when they have a dental abscess. In this case, a veterinary consultation can solve the problem. Watch his mouth and make sure his glands are not swollen and that he is not passing blood from his nose, mouth, stool or urine.
If it is a cold, keep it warm for twenty-four hours. If it continues, take her to the vet, prevention is better than cure.
