Coughing in cats

I have two cats in my household, only one of them coughs. It is a deep low cough. I have had her to the vet and she has been on an inhaler (was of no help), she has had a steroid shot (which helped for a while) and then she went on Clavamox. The Clavamox worked immediately and she was cough free for a few months. I had the Clavamox repeated and she was cough free for six months. However, after the six months it would come back. This last time she was only cough free for 3 months. My vet now wants to do chest x-rays. She hasn't tested for anything viral or fungal. I would like to know what you think of this course of treatment? What should I ask for if I want to have a fungal or viral test instead of the chest x-rays?
