Gentle Vet Animal Hospital, Dr. Ehud Sela: Feline Asthma

Feline Asthma is a serious and insidious disease of cats, that if goes untreated can be at times fatal.

The disease is most often manifested with coughing, shortness of breath and labored breathing.

In advanced and severe cases respiratory failure and a secondary cardiac failure can ensue.

The disease usually can be diagnosed with the aid of chest x-rays.

Most cats once diagnosed can be greatly helped with the appropriate use of prescribed medications.

As the disease often manifests itself early in its process with a cough, it's recommended that a

coughing cat should be immediately examined by a veterinarian.

Please don't hesitate contacting our office if you have any further questions about Feline Asthma or

any other health concerns you might have regarding your pets' health.
