Q) My cat keeps sneezing. She is still eating and happy, could it be a cold that will pass?
A) One of the most common causes of sneezing in cats is cat flu. This is caused by a viral infection and therefore usually requires time and rest so that the body can fight off the infection. In some cases cat flu can become chronic and lead to ongoing problems. Whilst cat flu is one of the common causes of sneezing in cats, sneezing can be caused by other things such as grass seeds which have become lodged in the nose or throat. It is always a good idea to have a sneezing cat examined by your vet.
