brookitar Posted November 25, 2014 Report Share Posted November 25, 2014 I have really been racking up vet bills this fall. My two cats had a respiratory infection earlier this month and now Effie is showing symptoms since last Sunday. When she was a younger puppy our vet said she did have allergies with minor coughing. Right now you could mistake her for having an asthma attack if it weren't for the sneezes in between coughs. She isn't sounding like she has kennel cough and fluid isn't hacked up. Her eyes are very gooey and red on the corners. Also her nose is extremely runny. Luckily she eats the same amount of food and has been drinking lots of water. Her coughing/sneezing fits are really what worries me. We are going out of town Wednesday and want to get her into a vet if it gets too serious. The weather in Texas is bipolar right now...my fiance and I both have dry coughs. My cat Bella is even starting to sneeze a lot. It makes it harder to determine if she has a cold or not. The vet earlier recommended Benadryl for her allergy flareups...he said we can move onto other histamines or steroids. Right now the Benedryl isn't helping at all...its the first time we've had to resort to it. Is there a natural remedy to help with the coughing and sneezing? I have lemon and honey to help with the coughing. The only thing is it doesn't help with the constant sneezing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
