• My kitten keeps opening its mouth as to yawn as well as not sneezing but making a loose as to get something out of his nose. Hes eating and playing as normal. Should I be concerned. Hes always getting into things. I have hardwood floors and try to keep them clean as possible. Please let me know if I should be worried

    Hi Dametria,
    I recommend that you take your kitten into see a veterinarian. The signs that you are describing can be caused by a few different things including an infection or an injury to the mouth or nose. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the behavior and any treatment that he needs after they have examined him. It can also help if you can take  video of the behavior at home and then show it to your vet at the time of the appointment.

Need more information or advice?
