So, what's cat asthma like?
[–]Bac0nLegs[S] 128 points129 points130 points 3 months ago (19 children)
It's pretty gnarly. If untreated, He'll cough and wheeze about 4 to 5 times a day. He hunches over and essentially flattens out his body, and just coughs for about 3 minutes and can't catch his breath.
If untreated it scars the lungs, and can cause heart disease.

I Googled it. We actually thought it was bronchitis, because the sound he makes when he coughs is very bronchial and gurgley, so we brought him to the vet for what we thought was bronchitis.
If he's sitting (in the "loaf position") and has his neck and head down and extended flat while coughing, it's likely asthma. I'd you take him to the vet, they'll give him x-rays to take a look at the lungs and they'll be able to diagnose it from that.
Our first vet said it's impossible to treat cat asthma because "you can't force a cat to breathe in the asthma meds". If your vet says that, dump him and go to a new vet.
[–]dgpoop 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (1 child)
He is likely saying that because he assumed you wouldn't be a good owner and handle the animal to administer medication. This is how vets think, they are trying to do the best they can with what they have.
I do agree with you, if a vet says that stuff, he's there for the job and not the animals.
[–]FrankiePancakes 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
That's the difference between a good vet and a bad one.
They should give you their recommendation as well as list all the options available for treatment. I've seen some vets assume an owner won't want the expensive option so they don't mention it, and IMO that's a dangerous mistake.
[–]6chan 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (4 children)
My cat does exactly that, and hacks for a while.
How much does the inhaler cost and where can i get it?
[–]Bac0nLegs[S] 13 points14 points15 points 3 months ago (3 children)
The meds he uses is human asthma medication (Flovent). You have to have a prescription for it, and through US pharmacies it costs around 200 bucks. I go through an online canadian pharmacy where it costs me 70ish a month and it's shipped to my apartment.

That's how pretzel was at first. We coaxed him with treats, and now he just hops up on our lap to get his meds. He possibly realized it helps him breathe better.
[–]sciamatic 19 points20 points21 points 3 months ago (0 children)
They can be pretty smart little boogers, even when they're also derpy as hell.
My cats hate going to the vet or getting their meds, and I have one cat that came to me fairly fucked up. While most of his injuries have healed with time, he has an abscess that acts up from time to time, and I have to squeeze it so that it can heal.
It has to hurt like the dickens, yet he always just sits there and curls his claws to brace himself.
All of my cats will behave themselves at the vet's, or if I have to do medical things with them. Even if they hate it, they trust me, and while they don't know why I'm doing this crazy human thing, they know I must be doing it for a good reason. They know I'd never purposefully hurt them.

I had a cat with significant asthma. Was feeding Iams cat food then. At the suggestion of a new vet switched to a better cat food, no more asthma. Such a relief to not have to administer inhalers and so easily fixed with decent food.

By really high quality do you mean really pricey kibble? It still won't be anywhere near as good as raw feeding. If you live near a big city there's probably companies selling raw.

Can you recommend a cat food brand
[–]nemisis1877 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago* (0 children)
after doing some research on google for dry food, there's 2 I like to feed my cat:
ACANA/Grasslands 5.4kg bag for $59cnd
Wellness Core/original, 11lbs bag for $60cnd
Just make sure it's grain free, and the starting ingrediants are all meat products. You will not find these brands in regular stores, like wal-mart, or safeway, only at pet stores, like petsmart or online. The worst cat food brands to feed your cat are pretty much all the brands you find at regular stores, like Whiskas, Purina, Iams ect.
Cats are 100% carnivores, grain fillers does nothing for them.
[–]noirealise 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
For wet food I use Hounds & Gatos Chicken Formula, has a lot of protein and water content.
For dry food I use Core Wellness Indoor Formula. I usually mix 80% wet food 20% dry food for their main mealtimes, and then just dry food for midnight snack.
[–]digophelia 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Earthborn Holistic wet food is excellent.
For dry food I use natural balance green pea chicken formula.
Always look at the ingredient list when shopping around.
My cats have the shiniest softest coats ever and love the food they eat, so I assume I'm doing good!
[–]sanleawal 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (2 children)
I switched my cat over to Instinct at the vets recommendation. He improved immediately. Eventually we used other very high quality brands including Fromms, Earthborn,and others. In my small home town we have a privately owned pet store that will give me samples to try so that my cat can give approval before I buy a bigger sack. Expect to pay more but so worth it because medication can be much more expensive. Though Blue Buffalo is all over the net he never did like to eat it though our dog did. I avoid buying anything at large retailers like pet smart,Walmart or the grocery store because the tend to have lower quality. Let me know how things go. I’d love to know if yours improves, best of luck!
[–]insaneblane 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Thanks for the suggestions! Just curious, when you say "improved", what exactly are you referring to?
[–]sanleawal 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Improved means: Asthma no longer needing medication, the old vet had him on low dose of prednisone and albuterol. After diet change the medications were weaned off and he never had another asthma attack afterward. It was a very dramatic turnaround and it was clear he felt much better. I regret not seeking different medical advice sooner.
[–]Flesh-Odium 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago* (0 children)
I would highly suggest Merrick's if you can find it. I have fed my cats the "Purrfect Bistro Grain Free Chicken" for 3 years since doing research on the harmful crap and fillers that cats are fed. My 14-year-old cat is doing amazing on it. Glowing marks from the vet during check-ups.
I also supplement with a small bit of water/wet food mix once a day as well to supplement that need for water in their diet.

He's 9! I adopted him while I was working at a no kill cat sanctuary. He was a kitten and when he was born we had to quarantine him because his mom had feline HIV, so I was the one who cleaned his cage. When I was doing it, he climbed up my arm and perched in my shoulder and would just chill with me like that while I cleaned.
He's the best.

Hey do you have a video of him having an asthma attack? I think my cat my have asthma, brought him to a vet and he seemed to just chalk us off. He has these cough/wheeze things he does once or twice every couple of days.
I don't have a video, but you can probably just YouTube a video. The position they usually take when coughing is a "loaf" position, but their neck and head is extended down close to the ground while their cough. It looks like they're straining.
I'd advise you to take your cat to the vet, but be advised, theyre going to want to take x-rays, and the bill will probably be a good 500 bucks sans pet insurance.
[–]The_Fuad 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I had a similar problem with one of mine, on a hunch I switched his food to hairball reduction biscuits and it cleared up after a few weeks.
Always better to have a vet check it out but in my case he had hairballs that got too big to throw up and needed help dissolving in the stomach. Have since switched back to normal regimen and no coughing or hacking in a couple months.
[–]PeterMus 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children)
For those without asthma: Asthma is chronic irritation of your airway. Triggers (exercise, allergies, cold air etc.) can cause increased irritation and tightening of muscles in your airway.
You feel like invisible hands are choking you while you focus all your effort on getting air into your lungs. You can suffocate. A rescue inhaler relieves some of the irritation and allows more air in.

How long did it take before he stopped hating it? My 8 month old has been on a nebulizer for the last few weeks and still fights me like crazy. I'm not sure he's as smart as a cat yet.
He HATED it when we were pumping the thing directly on his face. He hated it less when we held the opening to our chest, pumped, and then placed it on his face. The noise of the pumping scared him. Once we figured out that little problem, he's been fine since then, especially with treats.
Hopefully your 8 month old gets used to the nebulizer quickly. Trying to treat and animal or small human that doesn't necessarily know that you're trying to help them can be an experience for sure. Best wishes!

I have a cat with asthma and the inhaler didn't work well for him. Eventually one of the vets suggested depo-medrol injections (a steroid), and we get about 8 weeks of relief from the coughing with those. I think we started the injections in 2007, and he's 14 now and still doing really well, but they do run blood tests every year to make sure his kidneys are ok. Looks like you've got your system down, but it could be worth talking to your vet about for longer term relief.

Oh my gosh. We have to do this with our cat, too. Same inhaler! Same soft pets!
We had her on steroids at first and she gained so much weight and my husband would have to force the pill down her throat. It was awful. Then we finally got the inhaler. She was weirded out at first and sometimes still tried to wiggle out of her puffs, but she's so much healthier and happier now.
Thanks for being a good pet owner. Many people I tell this about think I'm ridiculous for spending "that much money" on "just a cat"
We had to give Pretzel steroid shots in a pinch while we waited for his inhaler to arrive, and my vet was really nervous about it as it can cause diabetes. Good on you for switching meds. I don't understand how people can not realize that pets are a part of the family, and not "just a cat". They bring so much joy.
