My kitten has been sneezing for about a week now and it’s more than once a day. It started once we got a new kitten. She had diarreha for one day and that was it. I have to clean her nose every few hours, but her nose is not draining any fluids. Could she just have sinus problems?

If you have to be cleaning her nose that frequently, it would be best for her to be examined. I am hoping that the weight entered for her of 1lb for a 5 month old kitten is NOT accurate. Please take her to your veterinarian for an evaluation. I would also recommend a fecal evaluation in case that one day of diarrhea was just the tip of the iceberg, if would be best to be treating her preventatively than having to play catch up with her health if she does have an parasite problems. I hope she will be feeling better soon. Sincerely, Dr. Michele A. St-Pierre
