Most animals, when they have an obstruction in the lungs such as due to mucous, will cough, but not all.
The triggers for the asthmatic conditions are similar to allergies. I have found butterbur useful for allergies, but even better would be to eliminate the triggers. The best way to do this is with an elimination diet. Find one kind of meat that your cat likes and feed that exclusively for one week, giving nothing else. Beef or chicken are good starts, unless you know that they cause the asthmatic attacks. If after a week, there are no more attacks, you can add in another food, see if all is going well, and continue adding one ingredient at a time, every 3 or 4 days,until you have a complete diet. You eventually want the cat to be getting meat, bone, omega-3 fatty acids, intestinal bacteria from tripe or a probiotic, and organ meat. If the asthmatic breathing starts, eliminate the last one or 2 ingredients you introduced until you know what your cat can tolerate and what it cannot.
