Hi,

Sometimes a hypoallergenic diet will help asthmatic cats. I would definitely avoid fish, and all grains, if possible. Perhaps ypu can find a rabbit, duck, or venison based diet for cats locally.......otherwise you might consider a home-cooked diet.

My asthmatic cat did very well on a bronchodilator pill, one of the old standbys, called Theodur, and received steroid injections as needed. I also kept inhalers onhand for her, which I administered with a feline oxygen mask. Some asthmatic cats do extremely well on inhalers alone. A hugh advantage is that a steroid inhaler will deliver the medication directly to where it is needed and not affect the cat's entire system.

My Emma lived to the ripe old age of 17, thanks to the excellent care she received for her asthma. When I lost her it was to a different health issue.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Regards,
AshleyElla
