Asthma Symptoms in Cats

How Can I Prevent My Cat From Having an Asthma Attack?

  • Have your cat tested routinely for internal parasites.
  • Reduce stress in your pet’s environment, as it tends to worsen allergy and asthma symptoms.
  • Do not use perfumes, room fresheners, carpet deodorizers, hairspray, aerosol cleaners, etc., around your cat.
  • Avoid using cat litters that create a lot of dust, scented litters or litter additives.
  • Dry air encourages asthma attacks, so keep a good humidifier going-especially during the winter months.
  • Keep your kitty’s weight down and her body active!
  • And please remember, no cat should be exposed to cigarette smoke-but if your cat has asthma, cigarette smoke is an absolute no-no.
