Feline Asthma/Repiratory problems - Answered by Dr. Guindon

I was wondering which herbs you would recommend for an asthmatic cat. She is currently on 5mg prednisone per day and is given Theodur when needed. I am giving her 250 mg vitamin c/day & have just started introducing echinacea & goldenseal. She does not have the typical "wheezing" associated with feline asthma. Nor does she have open-mouthed breathing. However, she has been diagnosed with this condition. Her xrays show that her lungs do have some fluid on them. The only asthmatic syptom she exhibbits is coughing on a regular basis. When she was prescribed amoxicillin in the past, I would see a little improvement, only to see her go back to regular coughing after.

I can help with homepathic therapy.

First, the cat should receive APIS 7CH and BRYONIA 7 CH {9CH =200K (aproximately)}
3 granules of each, twice a day to free the lung from water accumulation.
To calm the cough, there is many good homepatic complexes on the market here in Quebec:
STODAL from Boiron, (France)
SANTAHERBA from Homeocan, (France)
R 8 from Dr Reckeweg. (Germany)
Elsewhere, it is easy to find good homeopathic products
used for human asthma. They work well on cats.

But remember, cats are sensitive to strong odors like:
perfumes, dedorants, smoke, spray cleaners or fabric softeners and often to perfumed, dusty or synthetic cat litter.
