Just like humans, your cat can have breathing problems too, such as cat asthma, also known as feline asthma, bronchitis and more, which impact their lives. And like humans, the correct medication and treatment plan can help them make the most of their lives as part of your family. The first step in this journey is to properly identify your cat’s symptoms and investigate what may be triggering your cat’s cough.
Living with asthma or bronchitis shouldn’t mean a lifetime of side effects
Feline asthma often impacts pets in their prime. This can lead to a lifetime of treatments that affect their quality of life. While there is no “cure” for cat asthma, you can treat and manage your cat’s symptoms to make sure they live the best life possible.
Through a combination of veterinarian-prescribed medications, diet and environment modification, your cat can be healthy. Inhaled medications are an important part of managing feline asthma and have fewer side effects than oral medications.
Side effects of chronic oral steroid use may include:
Increased thirst and loss of bladder control
Lethargy and no energy to play
Immune suppression and increased risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and bacterial and fungal infections
Behavioural changes, including aggression
Vomiting and diarrhea
Ulceration of the digestive tract
