My cat has a runny nose for a week or two, then stops, but never has any mucus. I took her to the vet yesterday and they gave her antibiotics. This morning she's coughing more than usual, but not hacking. It's just coughing and coughing. Is this a bad sign? She hasn't really had a fever (and the vet sd if she did it's mild and she hasn't had one for a couple of days). Is she in trouble?

Any advice is appreciated.

When I was a little kid, I had a cold. My mom gave me chicken soup and some garlic and a bit of honey (I remember that it tasted great) and it worked so well that I got well without ever having had a cough. Since then, my parents would sometimes give me the "chicken soup treatment" when I had a runny nose. You can try that.

But you have to realize that antibiotics are for very sick people, and they don't help most colds. The only time I'd take an antibiotic is when I had strep throat and I was allergic to penicillin.

It's more than likely that your cat is coming down with a virus, the reason why she doesn't have mucus is because she's being treated with antibiotics to help prevent an infection and she'll need to take them for a week at a time and not just for one day, if you don't you'll have the same thing happening to her agn.

She has most likely had a runny nose for a week or two, just keep her hydrated with water and if you think she has mucus then flush it down the toilet. If she has mucus it is probably due to the antibiotics. The best thing you can do to help her get well is by eating good food.

Thanks for the replies. She had no mucus or anything yesterday (her nose was dry) so I assumed it was a cold. Her appetite is fine, she doesn't seem to be in pn, and has always been healthy (with the exception of a broken leg when she was a kitten).

So I took her in. The vet took a reading (the same one as last time), and the results were fine. I asked what to do, and she gave her two antibiotics.

Then she just continued coughing and coughing (not too hard) throughout the day. I tried to get her to drink water, but she just wouldn't drink. Is this normal?

The second time, the vet took another reading and sd that her fever was very low (she had a very slight temp that morning), but she was still coughing and coughing. I'm not sure what to think of that.

She did seem a little tired, but other than that, she's always been pretty alert. The vet didn't seem concerned (and was quite busy, so that may have had something to do with it), but she sd that she could go to the ER if I thought it was necessary.

The first time the vet told me to flush any mucus she had, as she sd it was a virus. I think the second time I didn't, and it probably didn't help.

I'd appreciate any advice you can give.

I don't know if it helps, but I am sure that the antibiotics are helping to clear up the bacteria, so you might want to keep her on them and then re-test her with the next one. If her temp is still low and she still seems lethargic or weak, then maybe you'll have to go to the ER. If you just keep flushing the mucus, she may feel better.

I wouldn't panic if you don't have to. Many viruses will take weeks to come on and by the time you see it, it's probably already on the way out. Coughing is a sign of an infected nose or throat, but not a sign of a viral infection.

If she doesn't seem to be getting better with the antibiotics, you may want to consider taking her to an emergency clinic. They may be able to diagnose her with the d of a sample. The fact that she hasn't had a fever makes it even more likely that it
