Q. My cat started dripping clear liquid from her nose/mouth continuously & excessively, she is otherwise healthy to the appearance what do I do?

A. It could be an upper respiratory infection, it's very common in cats and is treated with antibiotic. Another condition that comes to mind is a polio in the nostril, more rare and more difficult to diagnose. I recommend you take her to the vet or send one of our vets some pictures in order to try and determine what is causing this.
