so after 4 weeks of medicine for his uri he started sneezing again frown i dont understand. if its his uri flaring up then apparently he's constantly stressed bcuz right after i stop giving his medicine he starts sneezing again.. is there any way to stop a cat from being stressed if he is? or maybe it could be a food allergy? does anybody have any advice frown i'd appreciate it thanks

Yes, change your cat litter to something with less dust! My two used to sneeze constantly until I changed to Dr. Elsey's Respiratory Relief and now no more sneezing. Wipe down Pippie with some kitty wipes to get the dust off and give some L-lysine twice daily. way to go

thanks. as soon as we go to the store i'll keep an eye out for that brand. where do you usually buy that at? and how much l-lysine? i have 500mg but i halved them all. also how should i give it to him, if theres a better way bcuz i just crush it and add a little water than syringe it to him,

The lysine dose is fine, 500 mgs divided up to twice daily. They sell a paste for cats if you want to do it that way. If they don't mind the syringe that's fine too but you can also get the Twinlab brand which is in a capsule so you can sprinkle it on their food. You can get the Dr. Elsey's Respiratory Relief at Petsmart. It's in a green bag. way to go

is it an expensive brand? the cat litter. pippie's fine with the syringe, he's been used to it with all the medicine he gets. i have him in the garage cuz its nice and cool. im gonna put his cat litter there and do a little test bcuz he hasn't been sneezing. if he sneezes than bye bye litter. my bf's mom thinks it could be the room, it gets stuffy for him frown but i'll check

It's about $14 a bag BUT BUT BUT it lasts a long time. I have two cats and I scoop twice daily and still only use 2 1/2 bags a month! Much better for them and frankly is more economical in the long run. wink

Possibly, if it's a small room and has some airing out problems. But for me I still wouldn't use any other litter knowing what I know about certain ingredients. What brand are you currently using?

thats yes on both. and i still wanna get that litter, the litter we were using was a crappy rite-aid brand. before that was arm and hammer multi cat. we got the cheap one bcuz we didnt have much money at that time but my bf and i both agree the litter has to go. it actually makes the room stuffier

You'll see, it'll work out much better for ALL OF YOU. You won't smell the litter and the dust all the time either. It's a really good litter and hopefully it'll help Pippie's problems with breathing and sneezing. Yayy! Hope to hear some good news on this soon! big grin
