He has been sneezing quite a lot over the past couple of days and today i noticed his left eye is slightly closed with excessive discharde from it. What might the problem be?

Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

It may be that Jake has a mild allergic reaction similar to hay fever in humans. This can be treated with Benadryl at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs. Apply a few drops of Artificial Tears to Jake's eye to flush out the irritants every 6 hrs.

There are cats that carry Herpes virus that can show as this respiratory infection. If this continues, have your vet examine Jake to be sure.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you

Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
