URI in kitten?

Hi! I'm new here and I had a question for your guys. I just recently adopted a 2 month of male kitten from the SPCA and they warned me about Upper Respiratory Infections which are common. I was wondering if I should be concerned if he sneezes a few times a day. He has no nasal discharge and no other symptoms. I was just wondering what your guy's opinions and experiences are. Let me know

Re: URI in kitten?

Just monitor him if the only symptom is sneezing, if it is a URI he may just fight it off. It could also be some mild allergies adjusting to new scents in his new home. If he develops a stuffy nose, refuses food, or seems mellower or downright lethargic it's time to be concerned and go to the vet. Don't delay, a kitten his age can go downhill very quickly.

Ok...I gave you my advice...I want pictures!
