Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!
What tests did your veterinarian perform?
examination of the blood
internal organ screen
intestinal parasite fecal exam
blood sample collect
feline snap test
he's been there 3 times in 4 days they gave different meds because they werent sure what was going on .. had him on iv's etc
I did not see x-rays listed. Is that correct?
Sorry yes he had xrays also .. they looked at lungs and heart and said the heart was perfect no swelling .. lunds were clean and sound clean as well ...
With all that you have done before, the answer is not going to be an easy, magical answer unfortunately.
A test to consider to get to the bottom of this if there truly is breathing problems would be an ultrasound of the heart, known as an echocardiogram to ensure the heart is beating and functioning normally.

they said they would do that tomorrow if he stablizes today.. they gave give a steriod shot before we took him home and a under the skin fluid injection. noone stays at the vet overnight with the animals so it seemed to me a better idea to take hime and watch him so we could take him to the er if deemed nessecary.
Excellent - sounds like we are on the same page!
These do not seem typical for either flu or smoke exposure.
Nope - not that either...
Offering food and water is fine. If the breathing is getting worse, go to the ER tonight - otherwise the Echocardiogram tomorrow is a good idea.
You are very welcome!
