Q. My cat was sneezing and had a small noise bleed I took him to the vet and they gave him some medicine, his noise is still taking spells of bleeding

Answered By

A. I recommend you contact your vets office in order to discuss diagnosis and further options especially when it has not responded fully to the initial treatment. Chronic bleeding from the nose can be an indication of a foreign body, severe infection or tumor growth and I recommend you discuss the option of further investigation and imaging of the area in order to guide treatment options. Ongoing bleeding will result in weakness and anemia and I would be concerned the underlying problem may also be causing pain and discomfort so I recommend you get a full assessment as soon as possible
