my cat has been sneezing continously for a week and now his eye has started watering, his nose sounds runny.He doesnt go outside.Is there something i can do to help him or do i need to go to the vet and what do you think it is?
Many upper respiratory infections in cats are viral, and are usually self limiting, however if they continue affecting a cat long enough other invaders, such as opportunistic bacterial will compound the original infection. That is when antibiotics are needed.
Since this has been going on in your cat for a week it is probably time to take him to the vet.
Additionally, if your cat sniffed up a foreign body and it is lodged in his nose it may have to be removed by a vet, and could be the cause of his excessive sneezing. Sneezing is the bodies way to remove invaders.
