We know it is very important for you to keep your cat’s health. Sometimes you worry a lot when you see your cat sneezing several times. Not always the sneeze is a signal of health problem in your cat, but when it is occurring often you should think in the possibility to receive the attention of a professional. The sneezing is just the symptom of something is occurring to your cat, but sometimes it is not a serious problem. Sometimes a cat sneezes because there is pollution in the air or your cat is eating something. The sneezing in your cat is normal and occurs in the same way as humans and you can deduce what is happening with your cat according to some behaviors. I would like to share with you some care tips that will help you to determine what is going on with your cat or at least know what to do when your cat is sneezing.
1. Don’t worry about occasional sneezing, but you should see if it happens again:
Sometimes I have seen people worrying about occasional sneezing in their cats. But when it starts to happen often, you should take your cat to the vet. In other occasions, cats could have a respiratory tract infection that leads them to sneeze. But a specialist is the only person that could make a diagnosis for your cat. Most cats are susceptible to air pollution and that’s why you should keep your house clean to prevent all kind of respiratory infection in your cat as well as humans living at home. On the other hand, by keeping your environment clean you can prevent many types of diseases.
2. Check frequently your cat’s teeth:
Believe it or not in your cat teeth could be the cause of sneezing problems. Abscesses formed in your cat’s teeth may cause severe discomfort to your cat.
3. Be aware of other symptoms beyond sneezing:
In many cases sneezing is only one of the symptoms of many that could have your cat. But there are other symptoms that you should also check. For instance, if you see that your cat has fever or cold when the outside temperature isn’t cold, you should take it to your vet. There are also other symptoms that often come along with sneezing such as loss of appetite, sniffle and others.
