Common Questions and Answers about Coughing cat illnesses

coughing

I have a 3 years old black cat. She is my best friend. She is coughing one in a while but the worst is her noissy breathing. It sound like her nose is stuffed. I took her to the vet and she said that is was alright! Could it be allergies. She eat well and drink well. I'm worried for her. Sometimes her breathing is so loud it wakes me up in the middle of the night!
Both of them still limp, and it looks like they limp at least 2 of their feet. Neither one has had any respiratory issues (no coughing, runny noses, sneezing or anything), the gums, tongue etc are ok and Cat Flu tests came back negative. They're still both on antibiotics. Any similar experiences?
I am constantly straining muscles from the intense coughing, I've coughed up blood twice. I finally had a CAT scan and it shows that my lungs are fine, except from some harmless scarring from prolonged coughing. Antibiotics have no effect on the cough. I've used Tussionex (codeine cough syrup) for years, but drs. don't like to prescribe it, so I use it when I can't stand it any more to make it last. The cough leaves me so exhausted, and my muscles painful, and it's almost impossible to sleep.
I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
My female cat has started licking off her hair on her paws and legs and possibly is starting on her belly - they are long hair and it's kinda hard to tell until a definite bald patch appears. This has been happening since before Christmas. At first I thought it was due to the loss of her beloved "Cat tree" but I got her a replacement - although I'm not sure she likes it near as much.
I've been getting bronchial asthma past 10 years (from chronic sinusitis/allergies) and this past week, I have been ready to pass out from all the coughing I've been doing. If I laugh hard at something, I have a one-hour coughing jag (think I even pulled a muscle in my stomach from coughing). I'm at Week 13, so I'm not sure if the tx is making it worse -- definitely can't be making it better. My wbc has been at about 1.
What, did you think that a cat would never get sick and never cost a dime? That is not realistic. Illnesses will come up, what will you do then? What if the cat needed surgery or an extended stay at the vets? It could happen. Something you should've thought about BEFORE you got a pet.
It turned out to be a pulled muscle. The coughing, as it turns out, was due to acid reflux. The fix for coughing, I finally discovered, was a nightly dose of Zantac 150. However, your relentless "cold" symptoms sound like an alergy induced condition. If so, your cough is likely associated with that same condition.
Last fall I noticed many of them sneezing,and they have leaky eyes and now that winter is here they are really coughing and sneezing with eyes and noses that are leaking. I feel so sorry for them and I don't know what they have? I have been giving them lots of warm meals and cleaning their eyes and noses. Thank you.
Now, Bruce and Tucker are my beloved cats, I have had them all of their lives. Dinah is a Siamese and is a cat who sits on your shoulders all of the time - very sassy and well, quiet. Nate on the other hand is a trouble maker but adorable and quite the cuddler- you just can't stay mad at him. He is very good with my toddler who just adores him.
A horrid tickle/sting in my throat which no matter how hard you try to ignore or fight it, you start coughing...and coughing... and coughing. Due to the cough my bladder is rebelling, my eyes water constantly, and occasionally vomit. I went back to the Dr (new doc as my old one suddenly stopped practicing in December), and she started by saying it was my BP meds... I take Lisinopril/HCTZ.
I don't think we can blame illnesses on any one factor. That's too simplistic. My Dad smoked for 80 years. He had 4 heart attacks, congestive heart failure. But what finally got him was lung cancer that had spread all through his body, even into his bones. Was it the cigarettes? Was it his poor diet? Who knows. But our lungs are made to process oxygen from the air to nourish our bodies. So I can't see where inhaling smoke of any kind every day would be helpful.
I went to see a Neurologist and Rheumatologist in March 2008 and had a battery of tests done including MRI’s and Cat Scans of the head and trigeminal nerves. Thankfully the MRI’s and cat scans came back normal. Initially the Neurologist said it was a rhuematological issue and the Rheumatologist said it was a neurology issue. The final diagnosis is Mixed Connective Tissue, but that is a broad category and tests have not narrowed it down.
I dropped my do-nothing doctor who had determined it was a gastic problem ( I knew better, after a cat-scan and a GI series), and went to a younger, more alert doctor.Initially. she thought I had endometriosis, but she had the guts to keep looking and said almost immediately "I think I`m going to check your thyroid." The next day she called me when the bloodwork came back, and said that it was definitely an underactive thyroid.
EEG TEST, EMG TEST FOR NERVE S AND MUSCLES, MRI OF T-SPINE, BRAIN AND STOMACH, ULTRASOUND, SMALL BOWEL FOLLOW THROUGH, 2 CAT-SCANS, 2 ENDOSCOPY, 1 COLONOSCOPY, BUNCH OF BLOOD WORK BUT NO-ONE CAN SEEM TO FIND THE PROBLEM, I HAVE SEEN A PSYCHOLOGIST, PSYCHIATRY, ENVIRONMENTAL MEDICINE DOCOR, SEVERAL HOLISTIC/ ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE AND STILL NO RESULTS.
I've had an MRI, two chest x-rays, a CAT scan of my chest, lots of blood work, and a laryngoscopy. At least that's all I can remember. I've been put on BP medicine for the first time (I'm 60), and my internist thinks I need to be on anti-anxiety medicine.
He orderd the following blood tests, CBC, IMGL, and SED rate. When I google these tests together and the illnesses all together auto immune diseases, mostly Juvinille Rheumatoid Arthritus. Does anyone have experience with this? Does this match the symptoms? Please help me, any answers will be benificial!
You cannot walk into a vet's office with a healthy dog or cat and just demand that they be put to sleep without getting a heck of an argument from the vet. Please don't keep rethinking what you did. At 10 years of age, your dog lived a normal lifespan and you did your part to keep him from suffering at the end.
They come back again and the cat is there. Another episode. Then they come to the house and the cat is no longer there. They have another attack because the house has become associated with the trigger. That being said a panic attack can easily take place during a severe asthmatic episode. They can be very frightening.
so off to the doctor i went i was referred . My ent says that he wasnt sure so get a cat scan to get a better look. REsults came back my right side max sinus is blocked, all grey, as well as right forehead sinus has half liquid in it and in between my eyes right side has also some blockage. the left side is great. so yesterday we agreed to do sinus surgery to clear it all out. he thinks that could be sinusitus with nasal polyps in right max sinus and the one in my nostril as well...
I have had CFS and Fibro for a long time and it is hard, often to distinguish non related symptoms from the many I do have with the existing illnesses But back in late summer of 2012, I began to have chest pains. It just felt like something was clinching my heart, I'd wait and it would leave after a short time. The episodes were rare and short lived, so I brushed it off as maybe the Fibro.
• Unexplained shortness of breath • Pain with deep breathing • Coughing up blood • Mental confusion due to decreased oxygen supply • Rapid breathing and a fast heart rate also may be signs of PE My mother’s symptoms included pain in the groin area, back pain which then turned into unrelenting back spasms, swelling of the feet and legs, and extreme shortness of breath. While she does not say so, I do believe that there was some mental confusion as well.
I've learned a few years ago that often both people and pets tend to crave the very things they are allergic or sensitive to. I know that this is true even of my cat. She is definitely allergic to grains, but if there is something that smells really good to her that is loaded with grains, she wants it. And, she will try to take it. She isn't normally like this with foods she isn't allergic to.
Hello! I would suggest walking for you along with Yoga and some exercises in the sitting and sleeping position. You can go for 2-5 km walks regularly without exerting yourself. Get yourself examined by the surgeon to rule out any infection and take all the possible suggestions for the hernia repair from your surgeon. Take care!
Just after Christmas 07 my 40mg 2x a day started, then I caught a virus, and was very ill, and it just would not go away, nausea, aches and pains all over, I blamed it all on this virus, never really suspecting the real culprit, yes you know don't you, it was because I had cut down on the oxycontin, and my body was craving it, this went on for 7 weeks, until one day it dawned on me what it was, by this time I had become tired all the time, getting up early and doing nothing, then backwards an
gave me sleeping pills, Vicotin for the pain and he decided to give me a CAT scan to see if I had a sinus infection. I got blood drawn out to see if my thyroid was normal, to check my blood count, and for other tests. I took the pills and I felt less pain. I could sleep now at night. In about a week, I went back to the Dr. and he told me my CAT scan was normal. I told him I still have pain.
Within a few minutes of entering a room, people begin coughing and/or sneezing.(By the way, it's always 2 coughs in a row.) I am not sick at all but everyone around me becomes sick upon meeting me. Doctors have told me that it's just allergy season, but this has been going on for a couple years! Besides the endless coughing and sneezing, other symptoms that people develop include: itching around the eyes and nose, acne (on face and neck), sores on the outer lips, and fatigue.
My father-in-law had a cat, but he very rarely ever changed the litter box and hadn't gotten the cat shots, even though he had the cat for like 3 or 4 years. When we moved his stuff over here, my husband got rid of the cat (let it go). You wouldn't believe the **** we've taken from my sister-in-law over that, but....
So far, I've been able to escape every single medical problem that has knocked me down hard, like a cat with nine lives. Big 'hopes' for this time, too, and so much sympathy and compassion for anyone battling chronic conditions and illnesses. (I might be joining you real soon). If you have something similar to my condition, please be sure to seek out a different allergist-immunologist if the one you have is not moving you forward with results.
In general, the speed of recovery would depend on how strong the patient's body is prior to the surgery, and the presence of any other chronic illnesses (e.g. heart disease, diabetes, COPD) which may hamper full recovery.
