Like humans, cats may suffer from respiratory diseases. These diseases are treated the same way and with the same drugs in cats as they are in humans.
There are two types of asthma treatment : treatment of crisis and chronic treatment.
This type of treatment is only intended for cats during acute crisis. They help to relieve your cat’s airways as quickly as possible. This treatment is generally based on bronchodilators, which make it easier to breath and relieve breathing.
An asthma crisis is not to be neglected. If your cat is in respiratory distress, do not hesitate to take it to your vet for urgent respiratory support.
If your cat has regular asthma crises, it will need regular check-ups and chronic treatment.
The aim of this type of treatment is to treat the origin of asthma, and thus, to control the disease over the long term by reducing the frequency and severity of crises. This treatment is generally based on corticosteroids because they have an anti-inflammatory effect. To ensure its efficiency, it is important that the treatment is administered daily to your cat.
In any case, if you suspect your cat has asthma, it is important to consult your vet. He or she will tell you what treatment to give to your cat and will be able to advise you on the best method for treating your cat.
