I'm wondering about allergies.

  Subject: upper respiratory???
  

  Hi Guys,
   
  I have a semi-feral cat, Sneaker who has a chronic upper respiratory problem. 
 He has been to the vet, has been on 2 rounds of different antibiotics, and had 
x-rays done to see if there was any type of mass (cancer, etc...) in his nasal 
cavities.
   
  We are finding nothing.  His discharge (if any) is clear.  His lungs are 
clear.  He simply breathes as if he's got a stuffy nose.
   
  The last thing we did was the x-ray and a culture to see if there's some kind 
of weird bacterial thing going on.
   
  I have 5 other cats here, including my positive, and no one else has this.
   
  Any ideas???
   
  thanks in advance,
  tonya

  In December, Autumn developed bad breath. I checked her mouth and her gums 
looked inflamed and a few of her teeth were yellowy. After Christmas, we went 
to PetSmart and got her a little red tooth brush and malt flavored paste. I 
expected a bit of a fight, but she loves the flavor and runs to get her teeth 
brushed every night. She doesn't like the brushing so much as licking the paste 
off the brush, but I am able to get some good, light scrubbing in. So far: no 
more bad breath and her gums look healthy. I don't know if anyone else had 
success with this? We also use tartar control treats. I don't usually post 
because I'm a FeLV noob! However, I've learned a lot  from this list and 
thought I'd post this since it worked well for Autumn.
