Get a chest x-ray and it will show if asthma is present, I think. Also if
the coughing increases in frequency. Go to
for a short video showing
how an asthma cat coughs, and that website has tons of feline asthma info.
My asthma cat is just fine! It's an easy thing to treat, not terribly
expensive once you've bought the equipment (about $60 plus the inhaler,
which we buy at overseas inexpensive place) and you're off and running.

I have the same question about Tobi
I saw this thread and have been meaning to ask the same question about
Tobi - who has feline herpes. He coughs also and my vet said it's probably
because of his mucous draining...but did mention caution about him
developing asthma. I am so confused about this disease and now it's more
confusing with this added concern.
He coughs once or twice a day - he does stretch his neck out a little - but
doesn't gasp for air. He sounds like a smoker clearing his throat when he
does this. Sounds phelgmy. His stance is like he's throwing up a hairball.
Thank you - Pam & Tobi
