I had my kitten spayed today and she seems to be having breathing troubles. First of all since I adopted her she has at times makes noises breathing and my vet said sometimes shelter kittens get some kind of virus that stays with them all their life from being around so many other cats and kittens in the shelter. My question is do you thing I should be worried because she seems to be breathing harder and Im worried. She has been sleeping on and off all day. Do you think I should do anything?
I DON'T THINK IT WOULD BE A BAD IDEA TO TAKE HER BACK TO THE VET & GET HER CHECKED OUT AGAIN. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY!!! MY DAUGHTER HAS A CAT WITH THAT VIRUS THAT YOU WERE SAYING THE VET THOUGHT YOUR KITTEN HAS. i DON'T THINK IT IS LIFE THREATENING BUT APPARENTLY THERE ARE SOME AMINO ACIDS THAT MY DAUGHTER HAS HEARD ABOUT. THEY DON'T CURE THE VIRUS BUT THEY KIND OF KEEP IT AT BAY. MY VET WAS ALSO TELLING ME ABOUT IT. LYSINE IS ONE OF THEM ...I BOUGHT SOME FROM MY VET ONLY A FEW DAYS AGO. WE HAVEN'T AS YET TRIED IT ON MY DAUGHTERS CAT SO CAN'T SAY FOR SURE HOW EFFECTIVE IT IS. IF IT DECREASES HIS SNEEZING, ( SNOT EVERYWHERE ) SORRY IT'S KINDA GROSS, IT WILL BE WELL WORTH IT. AROUND HERE (IN THE COUNTRY) IT'S KNOWN AS BARN CAT DISEASE. ANYWAY THE MAIN THING IS TO MAKE SURE THIS BREATHING THING IS DUE TO THIS VIRUS & NOT THE OPERATION OR AN ALLERGY TO SOMETHING USED DURING THE OPERATION. I WOULD TAKE THE KITTEN TO THE VET IF THE BREATHING IS MORE LABOURED THAN PREVIOUSLY. HOPE THIS HELPS & I SURE HOPE YOUR KITTEN GETS BETTER!
