Sneezing in cats is often mild and, in some cases, may resolve without treatment. Occasionally, sneezing can become a long-term issue, or have a more serious underlying cause. Examining a cat’s nose is difficult and several different tests may be needed to determine the cause of the sneezing.
Usually mild to moderate, occasionally severe.
