WE ARE NOW OPEN FULL HOURS FOR ALL PATIENTS AND ARE INVITING PEOPLE INTO THE PRACTICE ONCE AGAIN. As of the 24th July 2020, we have been welcoming a limited number of clients into the practice. Video consults are still available for those who wish to reduce their contact with others or who are self isolating. For the safety of all people who enter the practice, we have installed perspex screens in certain areas. We are only allowing a maximum of 2 households (2 people per household max.) into the premises at any one time. Please be aware that only one person may be able to accompany a pet into the consultation room itself (the other person may need to wait in reception). We are also asking that all visitors and clients wear a mask at all times when in the practice. There are exceptions for those who may struggle with these measures and please do call if you have any concerns. Please see here for the information emails sent to our clients about this situation.
A one off sneeze is normally nothing to worry about. Just like humans, cats will sneeze sometimes. If your cat is sneezing several times a day or for several times, there may be something else going on. Here are some possible problems:
▪ Infections – viral or bacterial – a relatively common cause of sneezing in cats is an infection. Some of the infectious causes of sneezing are covered by their annual vaccinations which is why it is important to keep these up to date!
▪ Foreign body – something stuck up their nose! It is really important we rule out something stuck up their nose as a cause of sneezing especially if it seems to be non stop!
▪ Dental disease – very nasty teeth problems can lead to sneezing.
