cat coughing and congested breathing...vet says OK
I'm very concerned about my 5 year old cat. She is constantly coughing and her breathing doesn't sound normal. Sometimes the cough sounds like a smoker's cough and sometimes it sounds like a toilet being plunged. Her breathing sounds like a whistle.
I took her to her regular vet. This is a cat only vet hospital and this vet is very experienced with cats. She took X-rays and did blood work and sent the X-rays to a specialist. My bill was $400.00! Her conclusion was my cat is overweight. She weighs 9lbs. My cat is still coughing a lot and her breathing is not normal. I am looking for a less expensive vet. Can I ask for the X-rays to take to another vet? The vet says it's not asthma, what could it be?
