Is cat sneezing dangerous?

Is cat sneezing dangerous?

Does your cat’s sneezing make you sick with worry? Relax, an illness is not a cause for every “achoo.” A tickle in your cat’s nose may as well be caused by a piece of dust, uncomfortable but safe. Learn how to distinguish the symptoms and find out, when a visit at a veterinary clinic is a must.

A common cold

Probably the most common cause of cat sneezing. Chilly days, as in humans, may compromise the immune system and, as a result, lead to compromised health.

If you notice a runny nose, fever, loss of appetite and fatigue, it is likely that your cat has a cold.

Cat flu

An illness more dangerous than it seems. While the name may make it easy to mistake with something harmless, it is in fact a serious viral respiratory infection with numerous bacterial complications. Malodorous nasal discharge, apathy, pus-filled eyes and oral lesions – these are the symptoms you should never ignore. Only an immediate medical attention may lead to successful treatment of the disease which untreated may turn fatal for your cat.

Foreign bodies

As we know, cat’s curiosity may lead them to places you could never imagine. Dark corners full of dust and crumbs are excellent hideouts, but also traps for your cat’s nose. A foreign body in your cat’s nose may cause irritation and sneezing. Sneezing is a natural reaction designed to get rid of the object. If you see it brings no results you can try helping your cat in getting it out, or, in extreme cases, visit a veterinarian.

Infection

Another common cause of cat sneezing may be a fungal infection. Cryptococcosis is a disease which, developing in the nasal cavity, spreads on the whole body. Wheezing, nasal discharge or sneezing may be the symptoms of cryptococcosis.

Keep an eye on your cat if you notice other symptoms such as watery or pus-filled eyes, sneezing, coughing or conjunctiva liaisons. These symptoms may be caused by chlamydiosis – a bacterial infection which may lead to cat flu.
