Thanks in advance!
IMO since most litters are clay there is a lot of dust. I would work on using the pellet litters (wood) as that is just about 100% dust free.
Except their use is contradicted in literature concerning lower airway disease (medical texts, not just websites) just like grain based and clay litters are. I've explained why in other threads, at least 2-3 times now.
Hmm.. This thread is a little old. I'm not sure if Strange_Wings has been on in a while. You could try sending a private message to see if they respond to that.
I've also been wondering about the same thing as to what cat litter to use for an Asthma kitty. He was diagnosed will clogged bronchial tubes since he was 5 weeks old. He was on steroids as a kitten, but I weaned him off the meds at 6 months old. He's now 8. I've been using corn litters all these years and recently heard that corn litters can cause problems with cats with breathing problems. So I tried the Dr. Elsey's Respiratory Relief and use it in some of my litter boxes. So half with corn and half with Dr. Elsey's. Some of my cats prefer the clay over the corn but it depends. Hard to say which one is better. I wish I knew. I only want the best for my asthma cat, he's the best cat I ever had. He also has to have dental work done soon and I'm scared to death over the anesthesia. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. THANKS!
I have a cat with severe lung disease. Everyday I give her meds so I had to find a way to eliminate any type of allergen in the air. No cover on the litter box, Air filter in the room, no glade, no febreeze, no scents of any kind, I used Dr Elsey's, now I use Tidy cat 24/7 - no dust no issues. I am thinking of trying the breath easy Tidy Cat, but corn is usually the best. No silica litter either. There are so many kinds out there it will make your head spin. But I was shocked with I tried the Tidy cat and no dust and she is fine with it. Also, you have to clean it often because the ammonia in the urine is damaging to their lungs also,.
