Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I would be happy to help you!

Is she extending her neck low to the ground and coughing/hacking repeatedly?

Any trouble breathing?

Still eating and drinking?

She is not extending or lowering her neck. She is just staying to herself and it looks like she may have trouble swallowing
Cat Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Thanks.

By trouble swallowing- Is she making swallowing motions? Drooling? Smacking her lips?
Paul
