Additionally, do Cat upper respiratory infections go away on their own? Most upper respiratory infections in cats will resolve themselves with a little extra TLC and time. However, more severe infections may require treatment, prescription pet medication or even hospitalization. As a rule of thumb, a sniffly kitty that is still eating, active and feeling fine can be watched for a few days.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how long does upper respiratory infection last in kittens?
Symptoms of a URI can last from 4–21 days. Sneezing is the symptom which often lingers the longest, sometimes not disappearing until 3–4 weeks after infection. However, if symptoms are not improving after 10–14 days, make an appointment to have your cat re-evaluated.
