Hello. My 13 yr old female cat has asthma which she has had for a year. She has been getting Steriod shots about once every couple months which seems to work. She doesn't wheeze at all until about 2 months after the shot (not sure if this means she has a mild for of ashtma or this is the case for all cats). When first diagnosed she was prescribed Theodur everyday, but it seems to make her very sick so I stopped that as an option. I've been told that continued use of the steriod shot can cause other problems. The Vet suggested acupuncture or the Aerokat inhaler. I would love some suggestions on either of these. And also wondering if my cat doesn't wheeze for 2 months after the shot - maybe she has a mild form of asthma and doesn't need the acupuncture of the inhaler??? Thank you for you help!
