• Tyger has been sneezing. Not all the time, but he seems to have short sneezing bouts and sometimes sneezing/coughing like he has nasal glop. Eyes seem fine and nose is not running? Should we make an appointment to bring him in? Erin

    Hi Andrei,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. The sneezing and coughing can be caused by a few different things including an upper respiratory infection or allergies but there can be more serious underlying causes for this as well. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. Any treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of the symptoms.
