How to Quickly Clear Your Cat's Stuffy Nose

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.
