Hi guys!

Poor little Fester is not having a great day. He's been sneezing pretty regularly for about 45 minutes and then he just puked up what could have been water, could have been bile? I'm not sure. It wasn't on an area where i could get a good idea of the color. He doesn't have a runny nose and I haven't noticed anything else wrong.

Any advice, any ideas what could be?

Have you had a vet check? I would try to get him in to the vet quickly and if you can, video the sneezing. Your vet will most likely start an antibiotic.

I did just get a new air freshner. It's one of those plugin fabreeze ones. He can't get into it but i suppose that could cause the sneezing. It's in another room. I'll go ahead and unplug it.

Stay positive, my guess is a URI. Just know the breed does not usually do well on Clavamox. Many find Orbax is good, or Doxycyline which covers a wider spectrum. Please update us.

I'll bring that up to my Vet. He's usually pretty good about listening to things I read on here lol

Eyes clear? No yellowish /greenish discharge?
Nope. He's clear-eyed. It's just that sneezing and puking. Once he puked, he hid in a box and now he's passed out under a blanket. I think the puking took it out of him. I have a vet appointment scheduled for tomorrow. I'll definitely update you :)

Poor little muffin. Sending you healing vibes! Please keep us informed. Hopefully Fester will take in some water (which he may throw up, but it's important he be hydrated). Hugs.

So I didn't take Fester to the vet. I was feeling a bit under the weather myself. However, he is not sneezing any longer and no more puking. I took the air freshner out and hid it away and he seems to be feeling better. I think it was the air freshner. I'm keeping an eye on him to make sure that he's better.

@Festerchat glad to hear Fester is not longer sneezing and puking. You're probably right about tha air freshener causing it.
Hope you feel better yourself!
