• Hello! I recently adopted an FIV+ cat and she started sneezing and sounding congested. I took her to the vet and she is on Clavamox now, with one day left in her 14-day medication treatment. She still is sneezing with mucus discharge and sometimes sounds congested. It is better than before, but still worries me. She is going back to the vet in 2 days but I don't know how to help. Could it be allergies?

    Hi Emma,
    I recommend that you keep your follow-up appointment with your local veterinarian. They will be able to best answer your questions about the cause of her symptoms after they have examined her. There can be many causes for these symptoms and your vet may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain causes. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of her illness.

Need more information or advice?
