My cat recently had stereo static radiation on throat

Customer Question

My cat recently had stereo static radiation on throat cancer. He sounds like he's having trouble breathing and I was wondering if I could give him another dose of his prednisone
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. How old is Recently?
Customer: A month ago
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Recently?
Customer: No. He's just been struggling with this and I know the pred helps with the swelling. He gets half a pill every morning but I wanted to give him the other half tonight to see if it would ease his breathing
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

How many hours ago was his last Pred dose?

What is the milligrams of the tablet?

What does he weigh?
