How to treat a runny nose in a kitten at home?


Andrey Gundarev

Before starting treatment, you need to determine the cause. (Suddenly it is an allergy ???) The strategy of treating a common cold depends only on this.
With a cold, cats usually significantly improve the living conditions (limit from drafts and cold), improve nutrition, including vitamins in larger quantities. It is important to ensure that the mucus around the nozzle does not solidify (you can clean it with hydrogen peroxide). Usually the spout of the kitten is heated with a warm sand in a bag, salt or herbs. Also, cats are made with peculiar inhalations on grasses and oils of coniferous trees. With a strong rhinitis and thick discharge, the nose is washed with beet juice or infusions with juices of onion or aloe.
In fact, people use methods, as well as for treatment in humans.
If the runny nose does not go away for a long time, and the kitten's health worsens, it should be shown to specialists.


Do not do home care. Bind to the vet, there and the ears will be checked, and the sniffs will prompt.

Rhinitis (rhinitis) in cats, runny nose in dogs can be both an independent disease and a symptom of other diseases. Discharge from the nose can be watery, mucous, purulent.

If the discharge comes from one nostril, then most likely it's not a simple cold, often it indicates a neoplasm in the nasal passages, here the doctor's consultation is mandatory.

An ordinary runny nose, as a rule, proceeds without deterioration of the general condition, the animal actively, eats well. For treatment, you can use drops for animals, or for young children on an oil basis. Treatment is carried out at least 7 - 10 days.

It should be noted that even a common runny nose in cats, runny nose in dogs, if left untreated, can go to chronic. The chronic rhinitis practically does not give in to treatment. Therefore, it is expedient to contact the veterinarian immediately.

Do not be afraid of antibiotic treatment if the case not started you will have a healthy animal. But, as a rule, an animal gets to the veterinarian, already ill, - 2 months! Often, treatment is useless, and the owners blame the veterinarians for being untalented. Having bought a kitten or a puppy at the age of - 2 months, sneezing, but cheerful, the owners think that he "has a cold and is surprised that a month or two" cold "does not pass.

And if you consider that viral rhinotracheitis or kalitseviroz cats, adenovirus and plague in dogs begins, usually with a cold - you can lose an animal within 5-10 days. For young people, these viruses are deadly.

Rhinitis can be of allergic origin, the first sign of bronchial asthma (not uncommon in cats!). Here the treatment is different: antihistamines, corticosteroids.

Especially we warn - self-treatment can be dangerous for your animals, therefore we do not give concrete appointments before examination of the doctor.

How to treat a cold in a cat

Cats as well as people can catch cold. Therefore, you can imagine how bad your pet is in this condition. The cold usually goes away by itself in about a week. But you can greatly ease the condition of your pet, following the following recommendations.


If you feed your pet with ready-made food, then give preference to canned, rather than dry, since the canned food has a more pronounced flavor, so that it will quickly cause the patient to have an appetite cat. Try also to feed it with small pieces of tuna. When an animal becomes ill, it often reduces appetite. Since the nose is laid, the cat can not feel the aroma of food. It is necessary that your pet must eat well during the illness so that there will be no loss of strength.In the rooms where your pet is located, use an air humidifier. Additional humidity in the room will greatly facilitate the breathing of your cat.Always be sure that your pet has a supply of fresh water. To prevent dehydration, he must often drink water.Constantly wipe the eyes of the cat with a soft cloth or cotton pads soaked in warm water, clean from various secretions to prevent the formation of a crust around the eye and nose area. Evaluate the selection itself. If they get yellow or green, the cat may have an infection. In this case, it should immediately be shown to the vet.Use Vaseline or baby oil to treat the area around the nose to prevent dryness and crusting.
  • You can bury your cat children's drops from the cold. On the first day, 1 drop in one nostril. On the second day, 1 drop into the other nostril. So continue to dig in drops for 5-7 days.
  • If other cats live at home, protect them from infection by placing them in a separate part of the house until the sick cat recovers.
  • If the condition of the cat does not improve or even worsen after 7-10 days, take it to the veterinarian. Otherwise, complications can occur, such as, for example, pneumonia, which requires medical intervention.

Sometimes the owners of kittens notice that their pet has started to sneeze. Sneezing kitten can look very funny, but do not forget that most often sneezing is a sign of health problems. Why does the kitten sneeze and what to do about it?

If the kitten climbed under the cupboard, inhaled there with dust and sneezed a couple of times, getting out from under the cupboard - then there's nothing wrong with that. But if the kitten sneezes or coughs constantly, if the sneeze is accompanied by secretions from the eyes and nose or other unpleasant symptoms - it is necessary to sound the alarm and run with the kitten to the vet.

The most "harmless" reason for sneezing in kittens is an allergy. Yes, yes, animals, like us, are susceptible to allergic reactions. Allergens can be very different: dust, pollen, mold, chemicals (for example, household cleaners, aerosols), cigarette smoke and even cat litter. If the kitten sneezes because of allergies, you need to install the allergen and eliminate it - then the kitten will stop sneezing.

But often it happens that the kitten sneezes because of more serious health problems. So, one of the most common causes of frequent sneezing in kittens are upper respiratory tract infections (bacterial, viral or fungal) and some other diseases. But the case of infections with one sneeze is usually not limited to. Other symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections can be discharge from the eyes and nose, fever, coughing, difficulty breathing.

What infections need to be suspected if your kitten sneezes? Disturbances of breathing, including sneezing, may be a symptom of toxoplasmosis. Toxoplasmosis is caused by intracellular parasites and can be transmitted from cats to humans. For a healthy person, toxoplasmosis is not dangerous, but pregnant women can not contact animals with toxoplasmosis if the disease is transmitted to the fetus, the outcome can be deplorable.

Sneezing in cats can be one of the symptoms of chlamydia. Like toxoplasmosis, chlamydia can be transmitted from a sick animal to humans. In addition to sneezing, chlamydia is usually accompanied by discharge from the nose and eyes, fever, coughing, trouble breathing.

Another disease in which the kitten sneezes is bordetellosis ("nursery cough"), a bacterial infection. Symptoms of bordetellosis in older kittens - sneezing, coughing, discharge from the nose, fever. Sneezing in cats can also be a sign of mycoplasmosis - an infectious disease. In this case, sneezing is accompanied by conjunctivitis, secretions from the eyes.

A very common disease of cats - infectious (herpesvirus) rhinotracheitis. The patient with a rintraheitis kitten sneezes, coughs, experiences breathing problems. Rinotracheitis may be accompanied by rhinitis, conjunctivitis, purulent secretions from the nose and eyes, swelling of the mucous membranes of the nose, larynx and pharynx and other symptoms.

If the kitten sneezes with the release of blood, then you need to immediately take it to the vet. Sneezing with blood means that the kitten has badly damaged nasal passages. Damage and bleeding can be caused by various causes: it is a foreign body stuck in the nasal passages, and a fungal infection, and even cancer (nose cancer or leukemia). Sometimes the allocation of blood during sneezing is due to... sneeze! If the kitten sneezes too often, the nasal passages become irritated, and the kitten sneezes already with blood. In this case, you need to eliminate the root cause of sneezing.

It is important to remember one thing: if the kitten sneezes, you can not self-medicate! Determine the cause of sneezing can only the vet. If it is an allergy - it will establish an allergen, and if the infection - then according to the results of the tests, he will say which one, and will prescribe the necessary drugs. Infectious diseases, accompanied by sneezing, there is a huge variety, we listed only a small part. Therefore, to determine "by eye why the kitten sneezes, it is impossible.
