Hello!
I have been dealing with severe sinus congestion, mucus, and sneezing with discharge with my 10 year old Russian Blue for about 2-3 years now. We have been do a dozen vets 99% of whom just said its feline herpes and brush it off.

One vet finally did a sinus flush and culture diagnosing my cat with a form of pseudomonas that was only responsive to baytril. We then proceeded to give the cat a baytril injection everyday for 90+ days until we called it off due to very little improvement (there was some improvement but not enough to justify an antibiotic injection every day). This vet has heard of a surgery that "drills holes" between the nasal passages to improve drainage and breathing but I cant find any information online about it and surgery is my last option.

She has been off of the injections for about 60 days now and is still suffering. Constant sneezing (several times an hour) with yellow discharge, while she is very affectionate and seems happy I can clearly tell she is suffering.

I am willing to do and try anything. Does anyone have any experience with this or has heard of anything? Please let me know!

I have known cat owners in the past who have given their cats Benadryl, and it worked, but the yellow discharge is concerning, because I think that would indicate an infection of some sort.

If you google "Benadryl for cats" you'll get a lot of results for other treatments.

1-800-PET-MEDS has Diphenhydramine (Generic Benadryl)
