Good morning - I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I see that your question hasn't received attention yet and I'm quite sorry. I think part of the reason is that it's going to be a difficult question to fully answer over the internet. Our job performance as experts is measured by our customer ratings, so sometimes when experts think they might get a bad rating, they'll shy away from a question. If you don't need any info anymore, please just disregard this posting.

Labored breathing is one symptom that I never ignore. I always want to examine my patients if their owners are reporting labored breathing because it can absolutely be life threatening. I'm really sorry that I can't help more over the internet. I know that you love your kitty and you want to do what you can to help but in this situation, you need to get him to the vet.

Please let me know if I can help any more.

~Dr. Sara
