7 Common Cat Runny Nose Causes

Like humans, cats can sniffle and sneeze following allergen contact. Pollen, dust mites, mildew, fragrances, scented candles, kitty litter, and animal hair are frequent cat allergies.

Cats' premolars and molar roots are near to their sinuses and nasal cavity. Thus, badly infected teeth might cause nasal discomfort and discharge.

Cat nasal polyps are benign tissue growths. These growths obstruct the nasal cavity, causing runny noses and loud stertorous breathing. These animals are often misdiagnosed with a non-responding URI.

Curious cats may get foreign objects in their nasal cavities. A cat's nose can accidently catch grass awns, food, tiny sticks/twigs, etc. 

Cancerous growths can form around the nose. These growths deform nasal tubes and adjacent tissues, causing nasal discharge from one or both nostrils, depending on location.

Toxins inhalation causes nasal irritation and a subsequent runny nose in cats. Household cleansers, plants, and secondhand smoke all cause runny noses.

I adore baking and my family loves banana pudding. I invented this banana pudding cake recipe while brainstorming in the kitchen. My loved ones can't get enough! If time is short, use whipped topping instead of handmade sweetened whipped cream.
