I'm wondering about allergies. Pat Kachur <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: Any chance that it could be asthma or some type of allergy? ----- Original Message ----- From: catatonya To: email@example.com Sent: Sunday, January 27, 2008 7:25 AM 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 Susan Ang <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: 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. ~Susan A.
