I need some advice,I took my kitty to the vet 1 month ago for a cough,a dry,whooping cough type,esp. after she would hiss at my puppy dog.I was given Amoxicillin suspension 10cc orally til gone.Did that-she is still coughing,even now waking herself up coughing.Within the last week, she can't "speak" when she first gets up,it takes 3-4 min. or so, and then it is weak.It does become normal after 10 min of awake time.She is eating normally,a piggy I might add,bowel movements are normal,urine is fine-good color ect..It's just this disturbing horrible cough! One thing I have noticed, she seems not to cough as much after giving her Hartz hairball malted flavor medicine,however, NO hairballs are ever thrown up, and she does throw up,ONLY after she drinks a lot after eating x always since kitten.Obviously, I would take her back to the vet, or for that matter, go to a new one, but I have no money at this time.PLEASE PLEASE can anyone enlighten me as to what her problem might be?I thought of Cancer,esophogus problems,even maybe a huge hairball stuck in her tummy.She has been with me through thick and thin, for the past 12 yrs.Has anyone else been through this?Any and ALL suggestions are appreciated.Thanks,from a very worried mom.
