Hello, Everyone! My cat coughed up a worm/grub Friday evening. We called our vet tech who just saw our cat on Wednesday for URI (the cat was prescribed antibiotics) and informed her what happened and she believed (based on description over the phone) that it was a tape worm segment and recommended that we administer praziquantel, which we did. The next morning our cat's breathing was still fast, however, she was spunky enough to come upstairs and explore the house (not typically in the house) so we were happy with the results. Since that day, our cat (a year old) has had inspiratory and expiratory wheezing (of varying degrees) on and off (mostly at night). She is now on prednisone and only had one episode last night. Could this worm/grub be some kind of lung worm/bot fly infection (the ONLY pictures I can find that resembles this larvae--is this even a larvae)? Should we try a different dewormer? Our vet tech seems doubtful that it is anything more than a tape worm segment and that it has nothing to do with her difficulty breathing. Thank you to anyone that can provide us some guidance.
