    Sam, an 11-year-old, neutered Persian cat,
    has an 8-year history of recurring and progressively worsening chronic upper respiratory disease.

    He is presented because of loud breathing and head shaking while sneezing nonproductively over the past 3 days. The patient is reportedly withdrawn and less interested in eating but is still drinking.

    The patient has received amoxicillin previously (most recently, 5 weeks ago); he also receives glucosamine with chondroitin sulfate for arthritis. His weight is stable and BCS is 4/9.

    No oral lesions are seen. TPR is normal, but tracheal- auscultated sounds are harsh.

    CBC reveals stress lymphopenia and mild monocytosis. Serum chemistry values are within normal reference intervals, and urinalysis is unremarkable.
