Coughing cat swallowing

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing cat swallowing


Avatar f tn I usually don’t have issues with coughing from it unless I’m laying down. But I am constantly swallowing the reflux throughout the day.
Avatar n tn I thought they were playing together and the older cat maybe bit him around the throat causing him to choke. It took him about a half hour of swallowing hard to get back to normal. A few days went by. Then I was at the refrigerator and he was behind me. The same adult cat was beside me. The kitten did the same gag/choke/cough again. So, I turned around, and the adult cat, who was beside me, went to him as well. I don’t believe they were together when it happened.
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.
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 I have one cat that vomits everyday. When this first happened she was on dry food and the vomiting was so bad that she was losing a large amount of weight (starving to death). Took her in to the vet couldn't find anything wrong with her so they gave her some meds to take before she ate. I took the food and soaked in water to soften it up seemed to help for awhile.
Avatar n tn My dog seems to have a lot of difficulty swallowing when he eats or drinks and he ends up hacking and coughing most of it up on the floor. He also coughs up a lot of phlegm when he gets up in the morning and he purse-lip breaths. He also has a bad mouth odor. I had his teeth cleaned about 8 months ago, but this is a different odor.
Avatar f tn Another possibility could be that your swallowing reflex isn't working properly, and you are dealing with aspiration. That might also cause coughing. Have you had a Chest CT?
Avatar f tn t worry too much about your cat, unless you see some physical symptoms-difficulty swallowing, coughing, or choking. If you don't see any symptoms, then your kitty is just normal. Honestly, nothing to worry about!!
Avatar n tn I have been coughing for about 7 years. I have been to 3 doctors and been on meds for post nasal drip, asthma. I had my thyroid out in Oct; because it was enlarged and closing up my trachia but that didn't help. Have had xrays and cat scans and everything looks good. It seems to coming from my throat area. sometimes i cough so hard that i almost pass out. I'm really at wits end. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn The plate goes so far back in the throat it does gag and there are swallowing and coughing problems. The symptoms did subside but then returned with the last plate they installed in my mouth. It's so large I really have had difficulties wearing that thing and have simply not worn it as I should have. I just want all this behind me, it's just so uncomfortable and difficult. Even painful. So yes absolutely, dentures do cause the symptoms.
Avatar m tn s far more likely the result of your getting up out of a reclining position and walking to the bathroom allowing gravity and some coughing and swallowing to help you drain the fluid from your throat and esophagus away from your airway. Can't imagine any specific connection of coughing to the bladder.

Avatar m tn My 7 year old, female cat was acting normal and then all of the sudden she started coughing. She had her head low when she coughed. Nothing came up. It only lasted a minute or so (although it felt a lot longer). She immediately went back to normal and appears to be fine now. I've been at school for the past few weeks and she's been staying with my parents, so I don't know if this has been happening frequently or not.
Avatar f tn I've got a cold right now and I have been coughing a lot...all that coughing has made my chest sore....I would call the Dr. and ask if you should be concerned...
Avatar n tn Thay have tested her for acid refux, astma, had a cat scan, and xrays of her lungs. Still nothing they keep putting her on alot of meds, and nothing has worked. Neither of them are getting any sleep because she is up all night. Its even affecting her at school. What suggestions can you give me on what or even where to take her. Thanks This discussion is related to <a href=''>chronic dry cough</a>.
738075 tn?1330575844 I've had an interesting month of having occasional but spontaneous breathing and coughing issues. At first I thought it was leftovers of that virus I had in April, or seasonal allergies. But it continues. I'll be doing my normal daily activities, breathing normally, and then I'll start coughing for no reason. A shallow, dry, non-productive coughing spell, and then I can't catch my breath.
Avatar f tn Got anabiotic's Amoxi-drop how long should it take to work for the coughing in on sounds she makes. Took my kitty to the vet after she ate my dogs pain pill and I had to induce vomiting under vet recommendation. Some of the fluids got in lungs and it caused walking pneumonia.
1435895 tn?1304291241 Today I got some results for the swallowing tests I had done on Monday. I was referred to these guys by the NS because I am having so much trouble with food getting stuck in my throat, coughing, hacking, choking when I try to eat. Now does anyone else have this happen? I am supposed to have a endoscopy week after next to see if they can find out why food isnt going down. In time for thanksgiving! Yay! I maybe wont have to puree thanksgiving dinner.
Avatar m tn On Saturday (about 3 days ago), I was coughing hard and bringing up some white to clear mucus after I took a syrup that's an expectorant, decongestant, and an antihistamine that my GP prescribed to me. I'm also getting over a sinus infection and just finished taking antibiotics as well. After I finished coughing hard, my throat (near my adam's apple) feels achy and feels weird when I swallow.
Avatar n tn Thank you for the information now here's my story: Five years ago, I had a bad chest cold, the doctor's office was over booked by two hours and I coughed till I was blue. After that I developed slight asthema, I also went for dental work, which I overmedicated on baby asprin, Advil, etc., and wound up having an endoscopy done which resulted in a little reflux and small herina, after being on Previdcid went away.
1371879 tn?1278467037 He coughed up the abcess in his lung and survived that. (coughing up the blood and mucus looked painful) No more signs of coughing and he is eating, drinking, pooping and peeing normally. But,,, the nose started looking burned again with new black scabs. Is this ring worm or skin cancer?
