I just adopted a 7 week old kitten a few days ago and he’s sneezing and sniffling but it’s too late to take him to a vet. What should I do? How do I know if I should take him to emergency care or not?

cats that come from the pound usually get sick. If the sniffling and sneezing gets worse I would take him to the doctors, but keep a look out to see if he loses his appetite and if he gets a lot of eye boogers. If that is the cause it is probably from URI (upper respiratory infection). Going from a shelter to a new home can also be very stressful for an animal so he might also just need to get acclimated.

I would take him to the vets my kitten was sniffing and sneezing and she had to have an antibiotic injection as it was the start of cat flu

new pets should get to the vet within about 3 days, anyway.  take him to the vet first thing.
