Abby Sneezes a lot! Is that normal? We think it might be from her eye discharge. When she was younger she had a sibling scratch her in the eye, we have eye drops for her and everything, but her sneezing is worrying me.

Hi!
My Mia sneezes alot also! I am not sure where it comes from but it seems like its worse at times! I seriously clean snot off my walls. I have taken her to 3 different vets and they all have said that it is an URI and put her on antibiotics and it clears up for awhile and then comes back. I was reading some blogs and posts on here and decided to order L Lycine. I am hoping that this helps her and will let you know if it does anything for her! Please keep us updated and let us kno how she is feeling

A few sneezes a day is normal. However, persistent sneezing is not. I would recommend having her examined by your vet and having her placed on a round of oral antibiotics. Generally speaking, cats don't just sneeze because their eyes have discharge. Nor do they sneeze because of a scratch in the eye. These are two separate nerve bodies. Unless the eyes are discharging so much that they're actually running into the nose, you should notice no correlation. However, eye discharge in addition to sneezing can be a sign of a respiratory tract infection. Putting her on lysine isn't a bad idea, but the main thing lysine helps with is the herpes virus...not bacteria present in the respiratory tract.
