Cat Sneezing Remedies
Why is my cat sneezing?
Cats can sneeze due to allergies, dust, and most commonly due to viral upper respiratory infections. If your cat sneezes once in a while there is probably no need to worry. If your cat sneezes over and over it could be due to any of these causes.
If the sneezing is accompanied by coughing, watery eyes, eye discharge, itching ears, red and hot ears, lethargy or lack of appetite, then it is likely an upper respiratory infection. A check with your veterinarian is always the best course of action. If your vet diagnoses an upper respiratory infection they will likely prescribe medicated eye drops or ointment.

There is an amazing supplement called Immunity and Liver Support by the PetAlive brand. I am updating this post since it is not available individually from Amazon at the moment. However it is available in a combo pack with their other supplement we use for our cats every day. This is called Gumz-n-Teeth. It is the product that launched Thriving Cat. It saved my cat’s teeth and so much pain, suffering and cost as well as dangerous anesthesia and surgery at the vet. It works so well at preventing tooth and gum disease that my vet now recommends it too! So, if you want to try both of these supplements you can get them together here:
Before I discovered this Immunity and Liver Support supplement, my cats were sick with upper respiratory infections all the time. They would pass it around between them constantly. If cats are dumped in animal shelters or live on the streets they are likely infected and will be carriers of these viruses for the rest of their lives. Most rescued cats get these infections in a shelter where it spreads. Pet Alive makes a wonderful supplement called Immunity and Liver Support. It comes in capsule form so you can twist them open and then pour the powder into cat’s wet food. The supplement is made for cats and dogs so if you have a dog that needs this treatment you can give the capsule whole. I mix it into my cat’s wet food every day twice per day. This way they are always getting the many great benefits of these ingredients and always protected from viral infections.
Immunity and Liver Support contains:
Echinacea which acts as an antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial. It stimulates the immune system and lymphatic system and is even used to support AIDS treatment.
Ashwaganda which is an anti-inflammatory and supports health of blood, heart, liver and kidneys. It also helps with recovery after sickness.
Milk Thistle which contains the flavanoid silymarin and is the most effective aid for liver function. Milk thistle is used in many supplements for people to help flush toxins, keep the liver healthy and even regenerate liver cells. Silymarin is also an anti-oxidant.
Dandelion which contains vitamins A, C, D, B vitamins and minerals such as iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc and lecithin as well as many others.
Gumz-n-Teeth contains some of these same ingredients as well as others like:
Spirulina with naturally high levels of chlorophyll as well as B12 and folic acid. It also helps the body utilize Vitamin A.
Horsetail which has silica which is essential for strong teeth, fur, gums, claws, connective tissue and surrounding tissue around nerves. It also contains sterols.
Gumz-n-Teeth is in my cat’s wet food every single day!

Cat sneezing home remedy that really works.
If you want to find a home remedy for kitty colds that I also use this is it. Raw, apple cider vinegar helps kitties get over viral and bacterial infections. It can be used alone or in conjunction with the supplements reviewed here or even with prescription medications.
Apple cider vinegar is an amazing old-fashioned remedy that works for many conditions in people and pets. It’s effectiveness on cats with upper respiratory infections is absolutely amazing. I tried it out of desperation before I found the Pet Alive Immunity and Liver Support. I still use it when my cats have a particularly stubborn infection. I use Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar which is the top brand. Whatever brand you get, make sure it has the “mother” in it. This makes it look cloudy. If it is just a clear, caramal color with no murky stuff in the bottom, it is not the same thing. If you get Bragg’s and you will know you have the right kind. Just dilute apple cider vinegar half and half with water. Rub this onto your cat’s fur around the head, neck and chest. It works on their skin and they will also try to lick it off and ingest some which is great.
Just a few applications per day and your cat will be on the mend in a day or two depending on the severity of their infection. If they seem all better after one application don’t stop just yet. The infection will generally come back without several days of treatment. For a serious infection your cat may need several weeks of treatment or additional prescription medication from the vet. For minor infections, apple cider vinegar may be all they need. It has worked numerous times for my cats. Apple cider vinegar will assist in the recovery of cats being treated with prescriptions already so give it a try either way.
