Customer Question

Hi I have an outdoor cat that came home this afternoon wheezing and can't meow. Any idea of what is going on with her?

I would entertain a crushing injury to her throat (big dog/little cat injury) or perhaps Puddin has broken with feline herpesvirus (FHV-1) which can cause a tracheitis and laryngitis. Have you looked her over for evidence of injury?
