    15 week old kitten coughing - HELP!

    @Mal Thank you for the suggestion :) We were thinking of getting a humidifier as well as it is very dry in our apartment. Do you use a cold or hot one?

    15 week old kitten coughing - HELP!

    We have just picked up an inhaler and an Aerokat chamber for our little Kramer. After extensive blood work and an x-ray at his last vet visit a couple weeks ago, we have ruled out any heart conditions that may be present. This has led the vet to believe he either has allergies or asthma. His...

    @Silke If we do have anymore issues with the new litter we will definitely look into the pellets, thank you! Here is a picture of Kramer tonight all snuggled up to dad right before he farted on him :LOL:

    15 week old kitten coughing - HELP!

    @Thunderheader I have read that some cats do not enjoy the feeling of the pellets on their feet. We've changed his litter from Naturally Fresh to World's Best. We already notice it is quite less dusty, and clumps much better. He was still coughing after the first day, but today he seem's to be...

    15 week old kitten coughing - HELP!

    Our visit went well today. We were happy to hear Kramer has gained almost a full pound since his last visit. We decided to take him off of the doxy as it did not seem to be clearing things up as quickly as it should. The cough is improving, but still as frequent as before. That being said the...

    15 week old kitten coughing - HELP!

    I am taking Kramer to the vet tomorrow morning for another check up and additional round of antibiotics. I am really hoping we get some answers as to why he is coughing, and that it is something manageable. He still seems in good spirits and is acting like a normal healthy kitten other than the...

    15 week old kitten coughing - HELP!

    It does sound wet, like he is coughing something up. There is no frothing or liquid that is noticeable, but he does make a wheezing sound until he is able to clear it with a good cough. Our vet has prescribed Doxycycline for him. That should hopefully clear this thing up. It has been 5 days...

    We do not currently have L-Lysine, but are interested in trying. Thank you for the link to information, we will look into it for our little guy. Not the best video but we did manage to catch the cough on film. (sorry if there are specific rules for posting links.)

    15 week old kitten coughing - HELP!

    Thank you for the condolences :) The vet didn't even consider asthma for some reason. We are trying to get his cough on tape for the vet as we are due for another visit in a week to get him x-rays if the coughing does not stop. I will post about the visit after we go I am really really hoping...

    It kind of sounds like a wet cough so I don't think it is allergies but it could be possible. The lack of sneezing makes me think it isn't an allergy.

    15 week old kitten coughing - HELP!

    Hi all, A few months ago I went through the loss of my kitten Benni when she was found to have contracted wet FIP. Now a few months later down the road I have a spunky new kitten, Kramer, who has 10x the energy my last kitten ever had. I noticed the first day after picking up my new kitten...
