Sneezing, Reverse Sneezing, and Gagging in Cats

Treatment

 

In most cases, if the mucus or foreign matter in the nasal passages is removed, these reflexes will stop. There are not any specific drugs that will stop these reflexes. However, if these reflexes are as a result of another medical condition, that particular medical condition can be treated. In many cases an antihistamine or a decongestant will work to reduce the involuntary reflexes in your cat.

 

Living and Management

 

Close contact with other animals should be avoided while your cat is being treated. For best results it is important to follow the entire course of treatment prescribed by your veterinarian.
