Ask Dr Claire

My cats keep sneezing, I have 4 of them but they don’t sneeze constantly just occasionally everyday and are behaving normally otherwise.

Sneezing is really just a symptom and can be the result of many underlying causes. In this case, we really need to find the cause of the sneezing so that we can treat your cat’s underlying problem (not just the symptom). This will help us reach the best treatment plan too.

Some of the underlying causes of sneezing might be:

  • Infectious disease (bacteria, viruses)
  • Allergies
  • Inhaled Irritants (think cleaning products, scented air fresheners and candles, perfumes, smoke from fire place)
  • Polyp or mass in the nose (unlikely to be in all 4 cats!)
  • Foreign object in the nose such as a grass blade (unlikely to be in all 4 cats!)

If you’d like to chat in person, you can get a vet on a live video call or start a chat to discuss in more detail now.
