Coughing cat pet

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing cat pet


Avatar m tn Is it possible that my cat is allergic to his own fur? Whenever I pet him and scratches his tummy or neck, he then cough or sneeze excessively. Then eventually stops. I dont know what causes it but this happen a lot when I pet him.
Avatar m tn If your daughter is getting cat and dog hair on her clothing, she is also bringing that cat and dog dander into her bedroom. She is also breathing in that cat and dog dander. You say your daughter has just been through another episode of "coughing, wheezing" and that she is using inhalers. These asthma attacks can get worse for your daughter. Your daughter could have an asthma attack in which the bronchial tubes close and this is extremely serious.
Avatar f tn NO! Especially at that age. Stay away from the cats and if it were my grandchild? I would get rid of the cat. Dogs can sometimes be worse than cats too. Now that I am older I will take an antihistamine and I'm usually okay if I don't stay too long, but as an adult I know the cues and know when to leave. A four year old is much too young. I remember spending summer weekends at my friends house and being up ALL night long coughing and coughing and coughing. I'm allergic to dogs!
Avatar m tn m wheezing like crazy, coughing up mucus constantly, getting a really tight chest, and it also feels like my ribs are bruised as soon as I start coughing. Where I have moved to is also right next to a very busy 3 lane road which is making me wonder.. Is it the kitten? or the busy road? or the smoking finally catching up with me? I've changed all my bedding to anti-allergy stuff, I change the bed sheets every few days, I don't have carpet. I regulary wipe down surfaces for dust.
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor with a cough and coughing up blood. A pet scan was done showing two small spots on one lung. Six months later a cat scan showed these spots had gotten smaller. I was told nothing to worry about. Has anyone heard of a type of cancer that shows up this way then going away to only show up later?
Avatar f tn why is my cat dry heaving? He has always done this from time to time...but now it's several times a day.
Avatar f tn As becoming the wild cat pet the pet,will my cat leaves house ? How much days shall I have to suffer the wild cats making our house dirty?
Avatar n tn My 8 year old cat recently started coughing, not the ususal hair ball stuff, and I can hear him breath. His lung sound "wet" . I started giving him some over the counter hairball remedy and think he may have aspirated some liquid. Today is Sunday. My vet is not open today but will take him to emergency if I have to. He is drinking and eating, his gums are pink. Should I go to emergency?
Avatar f tn t know that coughing is NOT NORMAL till i took him and found out he had pneumonia. What I was told is unless your cat is coughing up a hairball, coughing is not normal; and the impaired breathing definitely sounds like something is not right-please bring your cat to the vet right away.
Avatar m tn Are you sure you are allergic to her cat and dog? Has an allergist actually told you that you are allergic to cat and dog dander. I had an allergy test done by an allergist many years ago. The allergist confirmed I have an allergy to cat dander, a very low one though. I have asthma too. This may sound strange , but my husband and I have a cat right now. This is our third cat, they've all been rescue cats. I don't know if an air purifier may help.
168348 tn?1379357075 I have heard of this and believe it should be done when done for the right reasons under a hospital policy AND informing the owner prior. The policy I am familiar with in a hospital locally is that it is done to all cats that are spayed/neutered at a sharp discount (in your case free) to control the cat population. This special spay/neuter pricing is only done for the barn/ferral cat population, not for strays intended to be adopted to new homes.
1359930 tn?1277501102 The problem with owning a pet when you suffer from CHF, isn't the pet, but the dander that falls from the pet. A lot of people who weren't allergic to certain substances pre-chf, find it difficult to breath when there is foreign substances in the air, be it, pet dander, room deodorizer, perfume, etc., it doesn't matter, the CHF patient can be adversly affected. I used to love sitting around a campfire at night, and now the smoke makes it almost impossible for me to breath.
Avatar f tn Have you tried posting on the cat/animal forum? Or ask an expert pet forum? I would try that. They usually get back with you in a day or two. Also, maybe call your vet and ask for suggestions. Good luck! I hope the kitty and the family can adjust peacefully with the new baby.
Avatar f tn Animals that were raised together since a young age tend to have a very strong bond. I had a cat and a pet rat that LOVED each other, they would cuddle and everything. My cat Toby was about 5 years old at the time and my rat Stewie was about 3 or so. Stewie got a tumor and had to be put to sleep. Toby was so upset, he would jump on the dresser to look into Stewie's cage or look around for him (when Stewie was out of his cage, he was usually on the bed or running around).
Avatar f tn Other symptoms of a kitty with URI include coughing, runny nose and watery eyes. Antibiotics is one of the things that could help your cat get through this, but you'd have to go to the vet. For home remedies and alternatives, here is a link, but I would ask a vet first. Not that I don't trust home remedies. It's just for confirmation purposes. You don't want to waste your time on something that may not work for your cat although it may work for others. http://www.
Avatar f tn I had my carpets cleaned the other day.....various sick-cat messes....won't go into detail...I'm sure you get the picture....:-) but anyway, the carpet cleaner guy told me that for pet messes, one should use an acid (vinegar) to clean up the acid messes (urine, vomit, etc), NOT an alkaline cleaner (like a soap). I was wondering why my clean-up jobs always left more of a mess than the cat had!!! Just thought I'd pass along this info.
1232362 tn?1333135406 Please know that coughing (unles it's a hairball) or panting is NOT ok in your cat. We had an upper resp, virus go through our house and 2 cats were fine. The 3rd I thought had mucus in his throat or trouble breathing due to stuffy nose like the rest and didn't realise his distress till he coughed up a frightening gob of green phlegm. Bob spent last night @ the vet w/pneumonia. happily (so far-say prayers for my boy) all signs looking good for him and he's coming home tonight.

Avatar f tn Can anyone recommend a Cat or Pet Insurance company? I think it's good to have pet insurance especially as the pet ages. Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar m tn My 19 year old cat is driving my husband crazy. He (the cat) meows all day long. If we hold him and pet him he's ok for awhile. We give him his medicine (kidney problems) and a heated bed pad. That has helped in the past. But today-no. Our vet did say he had "dementia" Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks to all.
Avatar n tn My cat is going to be 12 years old. He had his first bout of kidney issues in June of 2014. I immediately changed his diet to raw beef kidney, which he loves and started him on Petwellbeing Kidney gold and urinary tract gold. I have since taken my cat to a holistic vet and he took him off of both of those products and put him Rehmannia 6 along with some other supplements for his kidneys. While he was on the Pet wellbeing product he was doing great and his numbers were normal.
587315 tn?1333552783 It's really a matter of individual preference. It's not something that I, personally would do, but that doesn't mean that someone else couldn't do it. The main drawback that I can see, however, is that by naming a new pet the same name as a deceased pet, whether the person realizes it or not they are going to compare the two and expect the new pet to be exactly the same as the deceased pet; something that isn't fair to either pet.
Avatar f tn If you were only allowed to have one pet at home total what would it be? Why?
