Common Questions and Answers about Coughing cat x ray

coughing

1, shortness of breath and a hurt rib from coughing. Doc did chest x-ray to see if I had pneumonia. X-ray came up on computer and he looked at it for 10 min like he was stumped then came in and told me no pneumonia, gave me med. and told me to go to doctors next day. I had bronchitis, strep throat, which he took no culture, pharyngitis, and viral infection, as my sickness started with vomiting and diahrea. Well, I did not go to dr, because I got better pretty fast.
I was concerned it was asthma. Well, the vet isn't totally sure what's wrong. They took blood, twice...and did a chest x-ray. His bronchiole's are a little enlarged, but his blood work was good. They are testing for heart worm, even though he's an indoor cat, & cat's don't usally get this...according to my Vet?! I am supose to give him predizone pills, 2 x's a day for a week & see if that helps....for if it is asthma or a bronchiole thing. I hope he's gonna be okay....I have 4 cats...
There might be the suspicion of a cancer on the chest x-ray. But there are many other conditions seen on a plain chest x-ray that would call for a CT scan and many of these conditions would be benign. It might be that his doctor is just being extra cautious. But you and your father should call and ask the doctor who ordered the CT scan, why it was ordered. He might be able to put your minds at ease, especially if there might be a delay between now and the date of the scheduled CT scan.
I was told the x-ray shows a cloud over the lower right lung; their office forwarded my x-ray results to my doctor but he is away for a few days. I am a non-smoking male aged 74, physically active in great health. I did smoke in my late teens/early 20's for about 4-5 years. Average then was 1 pack/day. I take no medications other than my self prescribed 500mg after meals of Endur-Acin, a sustained release niacin for cholesterol control.
Hope it work e same for my cat. By any chance, do you know about dogs coughing? One of my 14+yo Jack Russell is on fortekor for many yrs & recently she has developed some cough but it does not go away even after trying some cough & Pred syrups & Lasix. X-ray shows her pipe is narrowing due to old age. Vet mentions maybe checking for Bronchitis next wk since he says it shouldnt be infection nor heart failure.
I'm wondering about his other symptoms -- is he having chest pain at all that is different from the asthma, or just sore from coughing? There are, unfortunately, a couple of things it could be that won't really show up on X-Ray (however, I'm not a doctor, this is just me and my experience). The first one I think of, because I got it at around the same age, although it came with coughing and an incredible amount of chest pain, is pleurisy.
gary is an indoor cat. i don't believe he has a wheeze in his breathing gary is about 2 years old we'll do x-ray to check your suggestions. thanks!
Hi. I have a 1 year old cat who has been coughing for about a month. When I took her to the vet, they noticed "mild" donut shaped inflammation in a chest x-ray. They prescribed 2ml of 1mg liquid prednisone, twice a day for 7 days. I am on day 5 and just scared. She has coughed once (which is an improvement from 3-4 times per week), gasped several times, she swallows a lot, and her sides go in and out pretty rapidly (breathing) when she is at rest.
My 18 months old son start coughing, after a cold in mid may 2007, after 2 or 3 week of no improvements (no fever or lack of appetite), his ped diagnosed bronchitis and prescribed Azytromycin (for 3 days), Xopenex every 4 hours until cough succeed and suggested an X-ray. The next day the X-ray showed a possible pneumonia, so he was put on Omnicef too for 10 days.
Well steven keep on wheezing and a little coughing. Asthma was ruled out after having two x-rays. The doctor does not really know what is wrong and he even suggested that steven had whooping cough. We are confused what do we do now. Steven seem to be happy and not have any pains. Please advice.
Hi, I am currently in the x-ray field, and NO an x-ray can not diagnosis a sinus tumor. It can suggest it, if there is some bone destruction. A CT scan and MRI will give you some more info., but the only definite diagnosis you will get is with a biopsy of the suspected growth. That is the ONLY way to make a true diagnosis. You should post your question on the Ask A Vet forum it's also on MedHelp under pets!! Then, a real vet can answer your question. I really do wish you the best.
I have not coughed in 10 years, i am 51 years old and last month i had chest pain, started to get worse, so i went to the ER..I had some tests. cat scan and x-rays were normal so they said. they wanted to keep me over night for more tests but i refused due to my own personal reasons, anyways i was wondering if the oxygen they gave me caused me to have a bad cough? started coughing that night and have not stopped since,its been 1 week so far.
Think of a balloon with a small amount of water in it. CT scan. X-ray. Is that a spot in your lung? Nope. Hey, your left valve of your heart may be enlarged. Come in for a stress test and ultrasound. In the end, my lungs were forgotten and they've found I have high cholesterol. I'm almost 35. I'm very tired of this and the generic diagnoses. We've paid a ton of money to get me no further than square one. So here's my guess. I drink wine every night and I don't exercise much at all.
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.
I also have spider like veins all over the inside of my mouth and on my gums. I had an x ray done by the dentist and he said there was no sign of gum disease. Something is irritating me and making breathing difficult. I have heard that allergies also cause clear mucous.
They won't have a heart murmur, or coughing or wheezing and will have no sign of exercise intolerance, or syncope (fainting from heart problems). A chest X-Ray, echocardiogram, and blood pressure check would show abnormalities, but not many owners are willing to have these diagnostics performed unless a problem is already noted. Heart medications can be effective in preventing devastating heart problems if given early. I believe that Daisy is grieving.
They were telling me that with a negative chest x-ray but a positive PPD she had atypical TB. The treatment was removal of the lymph nodes. Surgery went well but the tests came back as positive for the Bartonella henselae bacteria and she has not been around cats since September. (I noticed the swelling a week and a half before Thanksgiving). I am puzzled by this.
My cat recently was spayed. Next morning she was coughing (like hairball cough). No fever. Not eating. She was put on pencillin. She is still coughing 3 days later and is barely eating. Could she have aspiration pneumonia and was this caused by the anesthesia? Should I worry?
I am petrified after a routine physical. I am told I need a cat scan after a chest x-ray showed a "nodular density." The Dr. says it is still there after the first x-ray showed a shadow in 1/06. Why she didn't tell me to get a cat scan in 1/06 after it first showed up, I don't know. I smoked for like 20 years and grew up in a house of second-hand smoke, but I haven't been smoking in like 3 years.
My cat was coughing and breathing heavy. I took her to the Vet and after they took X-Ray I was told she has to be under medication for two weeks. I started her on Clavamox 15 ML but after couple of days I noticed she vomits after each intake. I was told by the Vet to give her Metochlopramide 5 MG first and wait 20 minutes before giving her Clavamox. She is not eating food and I am giving her Garbor baby food (chicken and rice) along with Clavamox. I noticed she still vomits after each intake.
My dad has no history of asthma nor smoking. Shouldn't they have at least taken an x-ray, sputum sample or maybe even a bronchoscopy? i don't understand why they resort for him take take antibiotics right away and on the other hand these antibiotics are heavy on the pocket; without having any positive output. Please help.
My cat had an alarming chest x-ray after I brought him in for coughing and sneezing. Besides that he is very healthy and eats and drinks and maintains his weight. He is deduced to have mycoplasma pneumonia. He was put on doxycycline, and has been taking it for about a week now. After a few days, the biggest change I noticed was that he started sounding very phegmy and seemed to be coughing up a lot more mucus and a lot more frequently than before.
I actually went to the hospital two days ago and they did a cat scan, a chest x-ray and a EKG to rule out heart and lung complications. They think I have a strain which is possible since I have been coughing for over 4 weeks. They put my on cough medicine, Motrin, and a muscle relaxant. So far no improvement, It may even be a bit worse and I'm worried that the cough supresant could lead to bronchitis or worse.
), and it's mostly wheezing (I always cough really loud, and right now, my chest hurts from coughing so much). I've also gone to the doctor and had a chest x-ray, but neither things helped - the doctor thought I had asthma and gave me medication, but that didn't work, and the according to the x-ray, my lungs are in perfect condition. I don't know if anyone has any ideas or not, but suggestions would be awesome.
Four years ago in May 2003 I had a lung nodule on a chest x-ray. A CT scan was done and it said the nodule was scar tissue from a previous bronchitis or other infection. They said nothing about follow up CTs or keeping an eye on it or anything else. Last week I went to primary DR. about sinus drainage, congestion, constant throat clearing and slight coughing ( I do have horrible environmental allergies and have been on allergy shots for years.
I am also on Allegra. When will the coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath end? 3 chest xrays and a lung cat scan all came back clear after the antibiotics were finished. Some smaller airways are still blocked with mucas. Should I see a pulmonary specialist??
Is there any test that can be done or other significant x-ray signs that might tell me if the cancer has spread? We also found a very small free floating nodule of about 1 mm in his hind quarters. Cat's appetite is somewhat depressed and has had problems with constipation which are under control using oils/small amount of metamucil added to his food. Feeding high quality canned food mixed with water.
was also feeling tired but again assumed because of my babies. this lasted spring till end of summer. doctor recomended x-ray which showed lung mass, which was confirmed by a cat scan. another symptom i had is pain in lung area in the back especially when breathing. then doctor recomended bronchoscopy with biopsy. results showed either inflamattion or cancer. then PET scan was done which showed enlarged lymph nodes.....
I have to put it in a tupe and force it inside her mouth. After taking X-Ray from her I was told she has some infection (something like uper respetory infection) she was coughing with heavy breathing.
