Does ayone have a cat with asthma?

We recently found out my cat, 5 yrs old, has severe asthma. It breaks my heart to see her struggle to breathe because I too have asthma so I know what she's going through. She's on meds but I'm wondering if there are other things I can do for her.

  • I don't, but my sister did. Three of her four kitties had asthma. I don't think she did anything special for them (besides meds). I would suggest asking the vet if there is anything you could be doing at home to make your kitty more comfortable or make the house more kitty asthma friendly.

  • Did your vet test your cat for Heartworms? If not you might want to have that done because many cats are misdiagnosed as having asthma when it is the heartworms causing the problem. Although I did have a friend whose cat had Asthma and his was pretty severe he had to stay on the meds

  • My grandparents did. She lived to be 18. They were very careful about making sure she had her medication and saw the vet regularly.
