How to Quickly Clear Your Cat’s Stuffy Nose

Is your cat suffering from a stuffy nose? Saline drops can give relief. This article shows you how to prepare and administer saline drops to your cat.

Did your kitty catch a cold? You can help her breathe more easily with saline nose drops. You can either request prescription from the vet, or prepare the saline drops yourself. Below is a quick guide to preparing saline drops for your cat.

You will need:

  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 cup of room temperature water
  • dropper

Here’s how:

1. With the dropper in one hand, tip your cat’s head back with the other.  

2. Place a drop or two in each nostril. Keep her head elevated for a minute to give the liquid time to work.

3. Repeat twice a day, or until your cat appears to be breathing more easily.

Why do saline drops work?

The saline drops thin sticky mucus so your cat’s nose can drain more easily.

Keep your cat healthy with the best cat food and treats.

    Of course your cat should also see a vet if it is sick, there are some problems that can lead to worse things, like if the cat has an infection this will not treat or cure it.

    good tip, but I guess it is much better that we take them to a vet.
