Hi friends,
I'm getting a little worried about my Baldy boy. He's been throwing up a few times a month- now about 3 times just this week. I thought it was due to my roommates cats food, but he hasn't had access to that the last few days and he threw up yesterday. It isn't from eating too fast, as it happens hours after feeding time. Yesterday when I got home from work, he was lethargic (EXTREMELY out of character, haha), sneezing quite a bit, and his breathing sounded a little wheezy/gunky. I'm scared it's a respiratory infection? Just was wondering what others' experiences were with Sphynx health problems like this, and when I need to get him to vet. This morning he had more energy and was eating and drinking fine, had one sneeze attack but breathing seemed more normal.. (picture isn't him today, just had to share his evil glare!)

Hi there,

I would recommend visiting the vet ASAP. URIs can advance very quickly.

Please keep us updated.

Sorry to hear Baldy has health issues. I would go to the vet and ask them to check for blockage too (because of the throwing up)

I would video his episodes and show it to your vet-
I write down a list of things To chat with the vet about.
Always best peace of mind to go to the vet for a wellness check -
This way if antibiotics are needed it is better to get in his system sooner than later to nip anything brewing out of his system. I would give a call to his vet and follow their advice .

Will be lookimg for Positve updates!
