    Help Your Wheezing and Gasping Kitty Breathe Easier

    Cats make a ton of different noises, from meowing, to hissing, to growling, to purring, to chirping and beyond. Yet another noise you may hear from your cat is a wheezing sound. Wheezing may be accompanied by what sounds like coughing or snorting and will probably sound like they are trying to get rid of a hairball, without any evidence of the hairball itself.

    Hairballs: Hazardous or Harmful for Your Cat?

    Most cat owners realize that cats spend a large portion of their day laying around and grooming themselves—and that’s just about it! With all that grooming, cat owners also realize that the occasional hairball is bound to appear on their floor every once in a while. It’s just something that happens with cats.

    4 Tips to Enjoy Spring While Avoiding Triggering Your Dog's Allergies

    Warmer weather is finally emerging, and many pet owners are itching to get outside and enjoy the nice, springtime weather as soon as they can. But for owners of a dog with seasonal allergies, another kind of itching may stop you and your furry friend in your tracks.

    6 Common Symptoms and Signs Your Pet Suffers from Seasonal Springtime Allergies

    When spring finally emerges, many pet owners get excited to take their pets outside more often for walks and playtime in the yard or in parks. What pet owners may be surprised to discover, though, is that their furry friends may be allergic to seasonal pollen.

    Are Springtime Allergies & Asthma the Reason for Your Cat's Lethargy?

    Cats are languid creatures by nature. For 12-16 hours each day, you’re liable to find yours basking in the sunlight, cozied up in a bed or snuggled warmly in a pile of blankets. Of course, when they’re awake, they’re prone to mischief! Most cat owners take just a little bit of comfort when they see their cat sleeping peacefully, because they’re not getting into anything they shouldn’t be!

    Why is My Cat Coughing?

    Respiratory infections in cats and kittens are very common. The upper respiratory tract in the cat is made up of the nose, throat and sinus area. Viruses are the most common cause of respiratory disease in cats, with Feline Calicivirus and Feline Herpes virus causing 85 to 90% of all respiratory disease in cats.

    Understanding Feline Upper Respiratory Infections

    Although cats do not get colds, they do suffer from upper respiratory infections. These kind of infections are seen mostly commonly in shelter cats, barn cats and outdoor stray cats. Although any cat can contract these diseases, kittens are at higher risk as their immune systems are not yet developed to fight off disease. Purebred cats such as Persians have a greater problem with chronic upper respiratory tract infections due to their pushed in faces and the fact that due to inbreeding they do not have great immune systems.
