Belinda, Teddy had no coughing. He panted after exercise. Keisha and Frankie
had/have the coughing. Frankie has coughed for 10 years (since the day I
rescued him from my yard). Keisha really only coughed for about 2 months
about 3 years ago (every day). Prednisone stopped it. She had two of the
hairball coughing type attacks in the week before she died unexpectedly last
summer. Her purring always sounded very loud, deep and wet. My vet said
Frankie's problem was post nasal drip. He said this for 6 years. Frankie had
a coughing attack twice a week (this is very common with asthma). A
(finally) second opinion revealed asthma.
(ps no we don't smoke...and yet had 3 cats with asthma).

Subject: Re: coughing
This really got my curiosity, my Joey has episodes where his purr
sounds wet, rumbly and his breathing too, is how I would described it to
my vet. She has checked his lungs when he is having one of these episodes
and says his lungs are clear, that it is contained to his sinuses. He has
never had coughing but I'm curious, can he have asthma without coughing.
These epsodes don't seem to bother him, they affect me more than him, he
doesn't seem to notice them at all.
happiness is being owned by cats ...
