A cat sinus infection is like a sinus infection in humans with similar symptoms such as a runny nose, nasal discharge, sneezing, coughing and gagging. When the cat's sinus lining is damaged by a foreign object such as a blade of grass that gets caught in the nose, the result is an injury that can trigger a sinus condition such as sinusitis or bacterial rhinitis in cats
SIGNS OF SINUS INFECTION IN CATS
1. Nose Discharge, Sneezing, Coughing
Cat sinus infection symptoms include discharge from nose and eyes, sneezing, and coughing or gagging. On rare occasions, your cat may have nosebleeds. Some cats may develop a fever.
2. Loss of Appetite
Other symptoms may include loss of energy and appetite. And just like in humans, sinus infections can cause headaches and sore throats for cats.
DIAGNOSING THE SINUS INFECTION IN CATS
If you cat is showing simple cold symptoms, you might want to wait a day or two to see if they clear up on their own before seeing your vet. If the symptoms persist, however, you will need to take your cat to the doctor. If your cat has a nosebleed, take him to the vet right away, as this can be a sign of a serious problem. During the exam, your vet will pay careful attention to your cat's nose and eyes and to his breathing. Your vet may do x-rays to look at your cat's sinus cavities or take a culture of the discharge.
HOW TO TREAT SINUS INFECTION IN CATS
Your vet will probably prescribe antibiotics as the treatment for your cat's sinus infection. If the vet suspects that the infection is caused by a fungus rather than bacteria, he or she will prescribe an anti-fungal medication instead. If the infection is caused by a virus, antibiotics will not help, but the infection will probably clear up on its own in a few days. Try to keep your cat warm and dry and limit outdoor time. Try a vaporizer near his bed, to help him breathe easier. Drinking plenty of water can help. PranaPets.com's homeopathic formula

Hear how Sinus Support Helped Brittany's Cat Maggie
We started giving our cat Maggie Sinu-Help when she had a bad sinus infection and it helped clear up her symptoms right away. We also used CBD Oil to fight the inflammation and we were amazed with the results. I did not expect the support to be great for fighting allergies too, but we tried it for that too and Maggie finally has relief from her constant runny nose and sneezing! Its good to have on hand if you cat has any kind of sinus issue.
