Hello i have a 4 year old persain cat named puff and lately he has been acting very strange. A couple times a day he is stopped dead in his tracks and gets really low to the ground and breathes fast and hard out of his nose as his whole body shakes. The episodes usually last 30 seconds to a minute and a some mucas comes out of his nose during the fit and he looks as if he's chocking. It sounds as if his nasal passage is obstructed when he breaths at night and he has been meowing very loud and often during the day, often times just a few minutes before a fit. I have had some very bad experiences with bringing him to the vet always charges a ton of money and puff rarely shows improvement. A few months ago he stopped eating and was vomiting yellow bil and the i payed the vet over 200 and he gave me some antibiotics that didn't seem to do anything. I did extensive research online and found that it was probably froma toxicity from the byproducts in the foods i was giving him and also possibly caused by the litter he used that had clumping agents so now he's on natural everything and i'd rather try and diagnose the problem and purchase meds then shell out a bunch more cash i don't have for merger resutls. Thanks in advance and i stumbled on to this site its AWESOME!!
