Breathing changes such as coughing, fast breathing, shortness of breath, and rough breathing should never be ignored. If your cat is not breathing regularly, you should take him to an emergency vet. If the symptoms are mild, consult your regular veterinarian as soon as possible.
Discharge from the eyes or nose signifies an upper respiratory illness. This can cause your cat to become sick and stop eating. It could spread to other cats in your home. Your veterinarian may advise you with medications that will aid with your cat’s recovery.
