- Nov 3, 2006Betty,
Coughing can indicate heart trouble or other problems,
as other folks have already mentioned. It is just
that kitties with heart trouble often don't cough.
Dogs with heart trouble are more likely to cough than
cats with heart trouble. I hope this clears things
up. . .
One of my kitties coughs when she has a hairball.
She stretches out her neck and coughs and coughs and
then swallows very hard. She rarely manages to bring
the hairball up - but in a day or two i usually find a
stool full of hair after one of these episodes. That
said, I would certainly get Max checked out ASAP. It
sounds as though his coughing is quite forceful if he
is wretching. I would look to make sure that you
don't see anything stuck in his throat and get him in
to the vet.
