Default Are These Symptoms An Emergency?

One of my cat's sounds as if his nose is stuffed up, and he has a cold.
My vet is closed for the Labor Day Holiday. Should I bring him to the
emergency vet, or can this wait until tomorrow?

If he's lethargic and/or not eating and acting otherwise sickly, I
would do it today. It may cost more but sometimes time is of the
essence and it's best to not let it get out of hand.

His appetite hasn't changed, he just doesn't seem himself.

Thanks Candace.

As long as he's still eating and is active it's not an emergency. I would
call your regular vet tomorrow and see if you can get him seen before he
stops eating. The problem is if he gets too congested he can't smell his
food. If he can't smell the food he won't eat it.

You may want to steam up a bathroom and put him in there to see if that
helps unstuff his nose.

If he has discharge from his nose and eyes then he probably has an upper
respiratory infection. If the cat is sneezing or sounds as if they are
wheezing but seems normal then it could be the cat just sucked in some dust.
I remember when Isis sounded stuffy but was sneezing, I took her into the
vet he prescribed an antihistamine which cleared everything right up.
