Hiccupping and sneezing

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

Hi, I'm CryoCat - I'm a 16 year old grey tabby. In the last couple of weeks, I've begun to hiccup practically constantly. I tend to sneeze a little too. I've lost some weight, but am still eating, drinking and using my cat box. What causes hiccupping in elderly cats? Thanks for the help!

have you spoken to your vet about this? maybe it is asthma or something like that. A seneze here & there is not a big deal, but I would certainly see what the vet says with this happening frequently. Please let us know what you find out.
