sneezing blood?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a new 10 week old kitten named Rumble. I picked him out of a room full of kitties with URI's at a local shelter. The lady at the shelter gave him some vaccination before we left and us home with a bottle of liquid amoxycillin. Rumble is becoming very accustomed to his new house; he is rambunxious and playful, he loves to talk and snuggle.. he is a sucker for attention! The only problem is all of his sneezing. He sneezes several times in a row (as many as 10 times sometimes) and blows boogers everywhere, big nasty boogers, and a lot of the times they're bloody. I've never had a sick kitty before so I'm very worried about him. From what I've read, he could have Herpes or the Cat Flu, and I understand both of these are permanent... He eats a mix of wet and dry kittn food ALL THE TIME and drinks a decent amount of water, so I know he's not dehydrated. I'm just wondering if anyone else has been in this situation before and could give me some pointers. I would REALLY appreciate any help! : )

Sneezing blood is not a good sign. I suggest he be seen by a vet as soon as possible.

You can check for blockages in the nose. If you have a small flash light, shine it in his mouth. You want to see if the light signs out of his ears & nose.
It could be the cold, just like humans when their nose is irritated from sneezing. I saw that petco or petsmart sell nose drops for cats, just a saline solution. You can also put the cat in the bathroom when you shower.

The blood could be something simple or it could be something really bad. Best to get it checked out. His sneezing could have ruptured a blood vessel and is causing a bit of the blood.

Get him to a vet..it is a symptom of consideration. If there's thick mucus (OK gobbers y'know) it means there's an infection. As to what it is ask a vet. One of my cats has allergies and when she gets a sneezing spell there'll be a bit of blood mixed in with a clear discharge b/c the sinus gets irritated.
But in your case I hope your kitty will see a vet, an infection can scalate rapidly..best of luck and pls keep us updated
