Upper respiratory Infection ??

HI,
My Kitten is about 8 months old and has been suffering from really bad coughing fits. Everything else seems to be normal, no eye/nose dischrge. She sneezes ocassionally, but not too often.
I called the vet and they told me she might have a upper respiratory infection and to bring her in if she gets eye/nose discharge. I am just beside myself and unsure how to proceed from here. She has been coughing for about a week now.Could it be something other than an upper respiratory infection. Please help.
Thanks

Good morning;

Follow your vet's advice, sometimes a sneeze is just a sneeze ,-)

But the cough is a concern.  Keep a close watch on kitty's appetite and weight.  If she's growing okay, and her box habits are normal...keep watching.  If the cough is still there past the weekend, get her to the vet.  She may need antibiotics.

I recall that our vet in Ohio, when we were out there, did have a vaccine for cats, which helps them stave off respiratory infections.  Perhaps this is an option, once your kitten gets better?

Hope your kitten feels better soon.

Stay calm for her sake, and yours.
