    my Luna has been check over by the vet severam times. Put on a few courses of antibiotics fir three ear infections in one year and we have also tried antivirals.
    Her Blood panel came back normal and shes negative for Fiv and coronavirus,etc.
    i was convinced she had an nasopharangeal polyp but vet put her to sleep and said he didnt see anything.
    What could her reoccuring ear infections, rotten breath, and loud breathing. Be from??
    I have video of her sounds but it says one minute is too big

      Sorry to hear your baby is having health issues. Could it be a dental issue?

      @Anita , positive vibes for Luna

      How old is she ?
      Did the vet give a good look at her teeth and gum line? Sometimes bad breath is a sign of dental issues

      Do you flush her ears with ear cleaner ?
      I stopped flushing my pets ears years ago .
      My vet got me omto Trizultra with Keto to clean ears -
      I wet 100% cotton round pads, qTips and precision qTips all together on a little plate -
      Then I wipe amd clean ears gently .

      Ears nose through tall connected
      Perhaps ear flushing if done kitty may be sensitive too? Just thinking outside the box

      Any sneezing ? Did the vet rule out an upper respiratory infection?
      When I am at the vets with my kitties , we are there anyways , so I ask the vet to give a good listen to the heart for any murmurs - I just try to cover all basis while we are there - not that it's a problem for Lina but just to share -

      Surely others will chime in with suggestions to ask your vet to rule out

      All paws crossed you get answers diagnosis for sweet Luna

      Will be following for updates

          No updates, although today she seems a little better for some reason?
          She’s just a little over a year old, he mouth and teeth are healthy, I don’t flush her ears. I clean them and try to make sure I don’t get water in them when she gets a bath. The vet has given me a ear wash/ flush when she had an ear infection so I use that in the pads before cleaning her ears, I don’t put any in her ear.
          She doesn’t have a runny nose or sneeze- no upper respiratory issues at all.
          I need to find a vet for a second opinion!

            @Anita , can you upload the video to your ir then copy paste the url here for us to see amd chime in?

            You said she seems better - that's a Positve !
            Could it be seasonal allergies?
            Candles ? Plug in air fresheners?

            Sometimes Sphynx natural ear gunk can appear to be infections too it's just they have no ear hair so it appears different amd so,e May beleive infected

            Were her ears diagnosed visually or by testing
            Just curious

            Good she has no sneezing etc
