Re: [FH] advice on oxygen concentrators?
O2 concentrators are noisy. You need to make an O2 tent so that your kitty is getting most only O2. Search the archive postings on oxygen tents to find out how. If your kitty is open-mouthed breathing after being on increased lasix for a few days, you really need to take him to a vet ASAP. Either you need more lasix or you need a different diuretic. When a kitty is open-mouthed breathing, it is in dire need of competent medical help. If the lasix isn't working, the oxygen will only help while the kitty is in the tent (to a point), as soon as the kitty comes out of the tent, the breathing will increase again. I understand that you are worried he will get too stressed out by going to the vet but right now, he is struggling to breathe and that is no way for a kitty to suffer. Please take your kitty to an ER vet or cardiologist or regular vet at the least.
