What does a hairball cough sound like?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!

Today Mochi really freaked me out by starting to wheeze ... about 20-30 seconds later he started coughing. He hasn't done it since, but I was wondering if it's anything I should be concerned about. Is it a hairball cough? He's not stuffy or anything and not sneezy, and he hasn't been around other cats to make him sick. Do you guys know what he could be having?

thanks,
dara

I think a "hairball" cough would sound different with every cat. Your vet could give you a better diagnosis than we could and would probably be the best thing for Mochi. Please keep us updated.

If it sounds odd to you, would run em' by the vet to rule out any obstructions or anything. When my DLH gets a hairball she goes through about a minute of wheezing with a little grunt to it hruun-hruun something like that.

I'd say vet too, just to be sure there's nothing more serious... although it does sound hairball-ish... Oliver honks like a goose when he's coughing up a hairball, hahaha - definitely scared the poo outa me the first time he did it!

Each of my babies do it differently. From Skinny being quiet and very ladylike about it to QT who whizzes and chokes before throwing up a hairball bomb.
