Cats do a lot of things that pet owners seems to get used to, coughing, vomiting etc. This topic is focused on coughing cats, and coughing just like vomiting isn’t normal.
The first question to ask yourself is, if the cough wet or dry? Wet coughs can be pneumonia or fluid in the lungs. Dry coughs have three top differentials:
1) Feline asthma
2) Feline heartworm disease
3) Feline lung-worm
If any of the above coughs are heard, your cat should immediately see a veterinarian. Many of these causes are life threatening and early diagnosis and treatment can mean the difference between a healthy cat and a life-threatening emergency.
