COPD CAT

My Siamese Seal Point Lynx has been to the vet for what I thought was an upper respitory infection. Turns out the vet says he has something like COPD. I had adopted him like this... He was prescribed baytril for 10 days. His coughing attacks subsided for the most part, since stopping the medicine he's back to having a tough time breathing, runny nose, and bad coughing attacks. I've done the x-rays, and I'm looking for advice... I am hoping he does not need pills for the rest of his life.

I suspect he has a form of asthma? just haven't heard of a cat being dx'd with COPD but i will do some research to see  if I can find any info on that for you. meanwhile heres a link to a video to see if this looks like your kitties cough. I will also find info on some gentler treatments for after the antib.... baytril is a very strong antibiotic with harsh side effects....but once started do not stop this medication until the full 10 days unless your Vet has advised you to do so...
