I haven't read all the posts, but if she's an outdoor cat, have you had her tested for FiV or FeLV?

Hi. I'm brand new here. I joined because I was doing an internet search on cats with bloody noses and this forum came up. My Blake has had a sneezing problem ever since I found him when he was 4 weeks old. When I played with him, he always ended up panting very heavily. When it was time to get him fixed, the vet came across some unusual levels in his liver, indicating something wrong, but everything else was fine. The vet tested for every single virus known to cats, and everything was clear. Blake proceeded to get worse, losing fur on his tail, discharge from his eyes to the point where they couldn't even open. He started getting better after the vet gave me some Duralactin, Eye Drops for conjuntivitus, and Clavamox. He seemed to be doing well and the vet did the surgery when he turned a year old (2 weeks ago).

Blake has been going down hill. His sneezing is worse. He's bloody nose is so bad. He doesn't eat dry food, but loves the wet food. He can't take the pills, so the vet gave me liquid medicine. The vet keeps telling me to be positive, but nothing seems to be working. The vet also said that it's all in Blake's head, the lungs are clear. Today, Blake's nostril has completely closed. I'm at my wits end as to what to do for him at his point. He's so young...

Sorry for the ranting. While it's sad that cats are going through this, it's nice to hear that my cat isn't unusual, and I'm anxious to hear how your kitty's next vet visit goes.

Jrifers I wanted to send a pm to you but couldn't. I think maybe you should start another thread about Blake so you can try to get some more suggestions specific to him. Also i'd look into getting a second opinion because it sounds like your vet may have run out of ideas.(took me three switches once to get a diagnosis on something) I didn't read through the whole thread just wanted to butt in here to say that. Good luck to you both.

I was just about to make a rude comment about your vet for saying 'it's all in his head', when I realized what he meant lol.

I agree with Maya, another vet may be a good idea. Since your cat has been a little breathless since birth, he may have a congenital problem, has this been mentioned?

Did your current vet put him back on the same medication or something different? How long has he been taking it? What exactly did the vet say when the symptoms came back? Is his heart OK? Did you discuss allergies? Can you think of anything in his environment (cleaning products, etc.) that might be causing this?

Make sure he goes on eating, all wet food if necessary.

Please let us know what happens.

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I was wondering if lezzpezz was still active here. I see that the last time posted was in December 07, so I am hoping he/she still visits this forum.

The reason why I am asking is because my cat Morris has VERY similar (practically exact) symptoms as Sascha's. I was curious to see what the diagnosis was, as some of the options that we are at may not be feasible for our old (17yr) cat as he may not do well with being put under anesthesia.

As was mentioned in this thread, our (indoor) cat also seems fine, eats ok and moves around quite a bit, however he has had an ongoing discharge (both green and blood) from his left nostril. He has also been going into sneezing fits as explained by lezzpezz.

Another similarity with lezzpezz's experience is our interactions with the vet, we have been through 3 types of antibiotics, each with varying results, but none of them are really helping his sickness.

We too believed it was something that was stuck in his nose, but we can't be certain without the xrays, which as mentioned before, we were told that he may be too old to be put under anesthesia for these.

These symptoms have been going on for about 3 months now, and we have just tried to keep him comfortable by running a vaporizer and flushing his nose with saline. He has recently started open mouth breathing to bypass breathing from only one nostril, so we are worried that he may be getting worse. We are afraid that we may be just dragging out something more serious (such as a nasal tumor, or some other form of cancer).

Although he has had these issues, his behavior has not changed drastically, and he still seems happy, so we were hoping for some advise if anyone has had an animal that has experienced similar symptoms.

Thanks for any ideas,
Barker

question about cat with bloody nose

Does your cat eat weird stuff? My cat bella eats ribbons and anything plastic, we have to be very careful. Christmas is scary as she eats the bows and ribbons and what ever else she can find. she also licks plastic bags obsessively. she too sneezes alot in fits some times and today has a bit of blood in her nose when sneezing. i think she ate something. Just wondering what happened with your cat and if it eats weird stuff too. Lisa

bleeding nose

Hi

My cat is only a year old and she started having a bleeding nose maybe about 9 months ago. We took her to the vet and they gave her some doxaclyine (spelled something like that) medicine. She stopped sneezing blood and haven't had any fits for a long time. Well just the other day she started sneezing blood again. It didn't last too long and has stopped for about a week. This morning she has started sneezing again—I have no idea what is causing this. The vet doesn't believe it could be cancer at such a young age. She doesn't seem ill, except for the sneezing. She is bouncy and eating even with the attacks. I don't understand how this is a recurring thing? Taking her to the vet seems useless because they never found anything wrong with her. An x-ray seems out of the question because it just doesn't seem that serious yet. She is still her usual self, no changes in appetite, etc. Any suggestions or solutions?

-Thanks

Nelligrl,I had a cat many years ago,he had cancer and died at the ripe old age of 19.
I don't want to alarm you,your kitty might just be prone to nose-bleeds like some people,but the first symptoms in my Sammy was a nose-bleed.
However since your kitty has had this for almost a year,I doubt that's what it is.

nelliegrl has your cat been tested for FIV and FeLk?

Did the vet run any bloodwork?

Any other symptoms?
