Q. My cat is sneezing alot and has a teary eye. What can I give him? his diet is normal and hes eating regularly.

Answered By

A. Monitor for lethargy, loss of appetite, green/yellow discharge or bloody discharge. See your vet if you notice any of these symptoms. Ask your vet for a dose of lysine to give your cat. Lysine can help if the symptoms are related to a viral condition. Otherwise, do not give any medications to your pet without the advice of your veterinarian.
