    Regarding my previous posts, yes she’s been sneezing. We tried everything; dusting, vacuuming, and grooming, but nothing seems to completely stop the sneeze. There’s no discharge, except a damp nose. I’m not sure how to insert a video of her sneezing, but please inform me if there is a way. I know the ideal thing to do is to bring her to the vet, but she is already being treated for pin worms and my parents don’t want to keep bringing her to the vet and calling the vet. Our vet who was recommended by our shelter said that as long as she is eating, pooping, and drinking properly, she should be fine. I’m a bit skeptical about this because I’ve heard harmless sneezing escalating into pneumonia, which I’m terrified of. These vet expenses are expensive! If there is any tips, tricks, and/or comments, feel free to leave them down below. I want the best for her, but my parents keep saying to stop looking for problems, but I just can’t help it. Every time I try to educate them
    on upper respiratory infections and Pasteurella, they chalk it up to dust allergies or nasal irritation. I’m worried sick for her. I have a few questions anyways.

    – How much approximately on average would it cost to treat a URI or Pasteurella?
    – How much is a culture and sensitivity test?
    – Is this scenario a URI or dust allergies?
    – How to get my parents to bring her to the vet?

    Thank you in advance..

    UPDATE: I inserted a video of her sneezing. She doesn’t this throughout the day, mostly under the couch or after grooming. The amount of times she does this varies. Sometimes she’ll sneeze 2-3 times one day, none the next, or 5-7 times another day.

    The thing is, if you’re not financially independent you will have a hard time getting them to pay for vet visits and it will decrease her quality of life if she doesn’t get attention from a vet. Having a pet is expensive and not for kids, not to be rude but buns can costs thousands and parents don’t want to pay it because they thought it’s just a fluffy thing that will sit in a cage but they really are like dogs, but more expensive when sick.

    They vet has to tell you the prices of treatment, we can’t. An X-ray is best to rule out tighining of the throat, pneumonia of the lungs, then you can start to try and figure out what it’s causing but my buns don’t sneeze unless they stick their head into their hay so maybe that’s what your bun is doing
