Thanks so much for requesting me.

There are several possibilities for a cat to cough:

upper respiratory infection.

heartworm

asthma

hairballs

sore throat.

To treat a sore throat give a drop of honey every 4 hours for 3 days It will sooth and heal.

You can apply raw honey to any sore or irritated areas. It is a remarkable healing agent:

get it in Walmart or health food store.

Remove all dry food and any wet with chunks, pieces or shreds.

Feed only smooth pate canned food or baby food.

If he gets dehydrated give him tuna water drained from the can.

Please let me know how he is doing .
