Funny you should mention that Jen because I DID have several recordings last season when the problem was substantially worse... Of course I couldn't locate them when I brought him to the vet...but that is the best answer to my dilemna...  The Sound is definitely pronounced enough to record well... The other day I stuck a large knife in his side to see if the fluid would come out but all I got was blood.....my bad... really did little to help the problem.... ( I AM JUST KIDDING FOLKS!!!!!..HONEST !!!!!  : ).... Looks like I have some homework to do again on Airway issues in Kitties...

Bob,
Have you tried to record the sounds of his breathing to replay for a vet? Suppose you told them about past episodes & effects of thorough cleaning?

Hello All:

My remaining boy ( Magellin aka " Jelly " ) has some kind of fluid either
in his lungs or in his trachea... The oddest thing is that despite my
hearing it ALL the time ( and even frequently cupping him to get him to cough and clear it a bit) 2 Vets have failed to hear it ( and... in fact... it seems to disappear when I've taken him somewhere to "show" them what I'm talking about)... possibly adrenaline from being anxious about being in the car and a new environment dries it up temporarily.. just like we get dry mouths when we are scared?? It concerns me even though it's not currently causing him a lot of distress.... it's just very disconcerting when I hear him gurgling as he eats his dinner or as he sleeps because I simply don't know what it is and if there is something I should be addressing before it gets worse... When I first got him he appeared to have an asthma like
condition with multiple attacks of a kind of " hacking"  each day....
Interestingly that was last March as well ( when I first got him.... almost to the day today..... along his little but older "brother" who lasted just under a year with me despite many many trips to vets and multiple meds nearly the entire time I had him.... I call him little because he failed to thrive from the get go...a poster cat for bad FeLV) I still feel his loss and I will be devastated if I were to lose this guy over something I could have done something about..... The asthma like condition went away after I gave the rugs a thorough cleaning, moved all the furniture away from the walls and vacuumed and cleaned... got rid of as much dust as I could.... I did so many damn things I'd be hard pressed to know which ( if any) were the most useful...could have been simply that when I was finally able to open the windows THAT did it... All that said.... just wondering if anyone has had such symptoms with a cat ( sounds like one of us might sound after a bad chest cold just as the mucuus is loosening up... but instead of getting better it simply stays at the same level.... Anyone have experience with using nebulizers with cats ( and yes I've done the bathroom shower thing... thats a bit wasteful....).... I'm actually wondering about these new " Vape things... ie... if I were to add a small dose of medication to it.... they produce a HUGE amount of vapor and could be a LOT cheaper than a nebulizer..... Wondering also if anyone has ever given a cat a small dose of a mucolytic medication with what result.??? Ultimately I'll do a chest Xray but... these are rather pricey and it's spring "wedding" time now.... another cash outlay.... Though I won't hold off if it gets worse... I've just been home a LOT lately and have been
hearing it all day long many days....
The little guy is still playful , energetic, eats well ,poops and pees normally and is his same ultra sociable self... I just don't want to ignore
something I really should possible be paying more attention to.....

thanks for any suggestions and experience...

Bob

Hi Tina

I would recommend Doxycyline as an antibiotic for FeLV cats.
