My new himalayan (12 weeks) has a bit of eye discharge. the white of his eyes are a little red and he sneezes once in a while. i think it could be that he is allergic to the litter? it seems to be a bit dusty. i dont smoke and nothing odd is in the air in the house. i was told by the breeder that he is guaranteed to be very healthy and that the discharge is either allergies or stress of rehoming. He also told me not to vaccinate him until he's about 4 months old because they seem to be sensitive and he might stop eating. He told me not to worry and the eyes will clear up on it's own because he has a long nose and not flat faced. i clean his eyes daily, he said he didnt have to do any cleaning befor i took him. should i be worried about this? he seems very healthy and even though he stopped eating for a while when i brought him home and he had to be hospitalized to rehydrate due to stress and not eating, he's doing fine now. eats like a piggy. he plays alot and he's very affectionate. i know virus could be a possibility. what could happen to him if that's the case? what should i do?
