see the wonderful article, including pictures, on Chronic
Coughing in Cats by Dr. Danièlle Gunn-Moore BSc BVM&s PhD
MACVSc MRCVS, previously published in The Irish Veterinary Times. This
article specifically mentions this page and the related Feline
Asthma Mailing List as further sources of information!
The content of this website is drawn from the Feline Asthma Mailing List, articles written on the subject of feline asthma, and valuable input from Veterinary Respiratory specialists, with consent.
On the Feline Asthma List, we discuss anything and everything about feline asthma from medicine, inhaled medicines, homeopathic and holistic treatments, ideas about triggers, etc. We also provide support and compassion in times of crisis. The Mailing List, which has over 500 members, is available to provide help and support with any topics related to asthma, but many topics are also covered within this site, so please look around!
Message from the List Owner, Alexis, Mythos' Caretaker: "In
January of 1999, I created the Feline
Asthma Mailing List in hopes that other people would not have to go
through the diagnosis and illness of their asthmatic cat alone. When Mythos
was first diagnosed in 1996, even my vet didn't know what to do. The List
was created so no one else would have to feel that way. I am so grateful
for all of the group members, as *they* are the heart and what keeps it
in the right place here, a place to share information, a place where no
one thinks you're a kook because you spend hours watching your cat breathe!
I think we've all been there, if we're honest with ourselves. This is
a place to be able to say, "I have a cat with asthma," and not
have someone either begin laughing hysterically (sadly, true, happens
tome all the time) or respond with a "You have a cat with WHAT?!".
Here you will find empathy, compassion and a bonding with others who are
also owned by a furry little creature who depends solely on YOU to care
for it and give it its very life's breath."
