Nose and Sinus Inflammation in Cats




The use of a humidifier can sometimes loosen nasal mucus, making it easier to drain. Chronic inflammation is rarely curable but it can be treated on an ongoing basis.


If there is a bacterial infection present, antibiotics are the first course of action. Otherwise, medication will be prescribed to treat the underlying cause for the inflammation.


Living and Management


Ongoing maintenance will be dependent upon the underlying medical condition.




Some evidence suggests that a vaccine for young kittens can help to reduce the chances of developing this inflammation.
