Cat Cough!?!?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Last night, my cat woke me up with a dry, wheezy kind of cough. At first I thought he was throwing up a hairball, but he didn't. He did it a couple of times within a 2 hour period and that was it.

My question is this: 3 weeks I brought home a new cat with an upper respiratory infection. HE didn't have a cough, but sneezes. I kept him segregated from my resident cat until his sickness was gone (he was taking Clavamox). They've been hanging around together (no segregation) for about a week, but he's no longer sick. Could my resident cat have caught an URI from my old cat? Is a cough a symptom of URI?? Or...could my resident cat just have a little cough from the changing weather??

I know alot of cats that cough if sick with the URI. I would get him checked out.

From what I have worked with, Prednisone is used for cats with cough, but hey, I'm no vet. =)

Clavamox never worked for my cats.. Amoxicillin and Baytril were awesome.

Your cat needs to be checked by the vet. Hope all goes well with it.

Cats can develop pneumonia after exposure to the upper respiratory virus. I would definately take him to the vet.
