Pulled muscle: He has pulled a muscle in his neck. It hurts now when he moves try a cold ice pack for 20 mins then a warm compress for 20 mins. Rest it for 20 mins then repeat the process while awake. Try Motrin 800 mg 3 times a day for the next few days. The pain should resolve in a few days. Good luck. Feel better. ...Read more

Dust: Sneezing is a defense mechanism for your (and your cat's) to keep dust and other irritants out. Its mostly your nose that triggers it, and the sneezing will typically go away when your nose is happy again. Try using tissue to blow your nose. ...Read more
