Coughing in a cat is a sign you should not ignore. If you hear a cat, the first disease that will come to our doctor's mind is feline asthma.
It is very uncommon to completely cure this condition but we have great success controlling it with treatment. In some cases the cat's distress will become severe so it is important to see us early.
Asthma in Cats, author: Ernest Ward, DVM, what respiratory diseases commonly affect cats? Obstructive and allergic respiratory diseases, sometimes called "asthma "bronchitis or "bronchial asthma affect many cats.
Unfortunately, these diseases are not easily classified, and probably represent a variety of airway disorders. These conditions do share a common finding of "hyper-responsive" or "over-reactive" airways.
If the airway of a cat is sensitive to certain stimuli, exposure to these agents leads to narrowing of the airways. The inciting agents are usually direct irritants to the airways pediatric or things that provoke an allergic response in the respiratory tract.
Regardless of the cause, the end-result is the same: 1) muscle spasms in the bronchi, 2) increased production of mucus, and 3) the accumulation of cellular material in the airways.
The inability to clear the bronchi of this material leaves the cat susceptible to secondary respiratory infections.
