Common Causes of Cat Sneezing

Have you noticed that your cat sneezes a lot? Is this problem starting to worry you, but you are not sure on how to take care of it? If this sounds like you, you are not alone.

Continuous sneezing can be a sign of an upper respiratory infection, or of a foreign body lodged in your cat's nasal passages. The good thing about a cat’s sneeze is that it is usually not serious - but that does not mean that you want to overlook it.
Cat Sneezing Infections.

In most cases cat sneezing is a normal part of a properly functioning respiratory system, but you should not automatically assume that this is the case. If your feline sneezes a lot it does not necessarily mean that it is sick, but this could be so.

If your cat sneezes for an extended period of time, and you notice other symptoms such as swollen eyes and glands, you will want to visit your veterinarian. They will then be able to tell you exactly what the problem is, as well as how to fix it.

The most common cause of excessive cat sneezing is an upper respiratory infection. Most sneezing infections are caused either by the Parainfluenza virus or the Adenovirus. These viral infections are highly contagious and can lead to a number of symptoms including excess mucus production, swollen eyes and glands, coughing and excessive sneezing. You may notice that your cat started to sneeze after it came in contact with other animals; this is because they probably caught an infection from one of the other animals.

Cat sneezing infections are caused by bacteria such as Bordatella and Adeno-2. Not only do these bacteria cause sneezing in cats, but they can also similarly infect the human system as well.

If you are having a difficult time figuring out what is causing your cat to sneeze, you will want to visit your veterinarian. This will probably be the easiest and most accurate way of diagnosing your cat’s sneezing problem.

Just like humans, your cat may be sensitive to certain chemicals that it comes in contact with. You may notice that your pet sneezes a lot when you smoke, use a fly spray, use certain household cleaning products or when you wear a certain type of cologne that is a little bit too strong. This is perfectly normal, and should be expected. Cat litter that contains very fine particles can often be the culprit, as the dust will irritate feline noses.

Persians, and other breeds with flat faces, are more prone to sneezing due to chemicals, product irritation, smoke or infection because of their constricted nasal passages.

Your cat may also be allergic to some of the same allergens that trouble humans. Cat sneezing can be combated in a number of different ways. The best way to fight cat sneezing is by trying to find out what the exact problem is. If you can pinpoint a certain allergen, you can then get rid of it and rid of the problem. You can do this by keeping an eye out for any common denominators that are around every time that you notice your cat starting to sneeze.

Cat sneezing is often only a problem during a certain time of the year. This means that there may be something in the air at that time that causes your cat this problem.
Sneezing and Cat Dental Problems.

One cause of feline sneezing that is often unsuspected is dental problems such as an advanced tooth abscess. Infections from the upper dentition can penetrate the nasal region and cause frequent sneezing.

Since you may not think to look at your cats' teeth when trying to diagnose the cause of your cat sneezing, this can often stay undetected for long periods of time. It is a good idea to have dental care as part of your cat's normal health discipline. This is perhaps the only way to rule out dental problems as a source of sneezing.
Cat Sneezing Blood.

If your cat is sneezing up blood it would be wise to have your veterinarian check the problem out as soon as possible. The cause may be something that is not too serious but it could also be nasal cancer. Your vet may give your cat a sinus flush and will certainly want to x-ray the sinuses.

Overall, a sneezing cat can be an irritating problem for any cat owner as well as for the cat. If you are having a hard time figuring out what is causing this problem, you will want to visit your veterinarian. This is probably the quickest and most accurate way of diagnosing a cat sneezing problem.
