I had a question about Belza. Today I came home from work and she has a whistling nose.. You know like when you have a boogie or something stuck in your nose.. Well anyways her nose is kind of runny (clear) and she has only sneezed once for now. I kind of noticed it starting last night after her bath but she just had a runny nose. But I'm wondering what it could be? Has anyone had any experienced this before in their kittens? I currently have her on lysine too.

I agree with Holly.
It sounds like a URI.
I have had it happen before.
Go to to the vet.

I concur also! A trip to the vet would be the safest route. Snuffie once had a whisteling nose and it wasn't even wet, it was dry,,I stopped in at the vet with her and it did turn out to be a boogie. lol If your kitties nose is running tho Id be concerned and get her in asap. Goodluck and keep us posted.

And no worries, a URI is very easy to cure. All you need is some medicine, and all will be good in no time. Good Luck :ThumbsUp:

Save yourself a ton of trouble, if your vet reccomends antibiotics, ask them for doxy, it seems to work best with sphynx

Unless this is a new kitty that you just got from a breeder or elsewhere, I would leave her be.....if the mucous from her nose is clear and she is eating then I would just keep an eye on her.
If the mucous changes to white or green or she goes off food or it spreads to the eyes or she seems down or suffering then go see a vet....
but if its a new cat then you want a formal record of having the problem looked at by a third party so I would go to the vet even if it is just viral.

She is kind of new.. we've had her for about 2 months now. But we recently just went on a vacation to Colorado and we boarded her at our vet for a week. So I'm not sure if she picked this up from another cat or if it just flared up from stress or something. They gave her lysine as well when we were away. She had some sneezing before we left and took her to see the vet but the vet said it wasn't anything serious just probably allergies or something..

Sounds like she got sick when she was boarded.
I would go for Baytril or Doxy.
