5 month infirm kitten is sneezing a lot--any impression what it could be?
I just adopted a 5 month old red male tabby. He seems to be in supreme health, but he is sneezing more than normal. No runny nose/eyes or lethargy. Should I be concerned? He have not been vaccinated yet--I am doing that today.
The reason person, Vaccines work by stressing the immune system. In a healthy cat (or dog) it just serves to stimulate the immune system to develop antibodies to the infectious agent.
HOWEVER: in an already sick animal it can dent an already weak immune system and allow the original infection to become far worse - because the body can't fight it sour.
Maybe he's allergic to himself.
If you have carpet or something, he could be allergic to that. But I think he'll gain over it. My kitten did. :-)
My cat started sneezing a lot, and its eyes started to wet. The Vet told us that our cats problem was allergies.
