Hello everyone, My name is Mark and in looking for any help you could provide for my loving cat Mowa. Mowa is a rescue roughly 8-10 yrs old. She has been with me for 7 yrs. Since Mowa found me she has always had a wheezing issue but seemed to breath ok. This issue fully depends on her head position, When shes looking straight forward she tends to make a snore like sound but with her head turned side to side or her chin lifted the snoring sound would go away. Recently her breathing has become much worse especially during the winter months, so i took her into the Vet. After several tests like a laryngeal scope, a CT (Which found no obstructions) the vet seemed to think she had some form of laryngeal paralysis. I know this is rare in cats and after another Vet did a laryngeal scope they agreed her laryngeal flaps or folds were not moving like they should. I agreed to have a procedure done called a Laryngeal Tie Back done and Mowa is now a few days into recovery but her breathing issue has remained. It seems to get worse right after eating and she is on 5 m,g Prednisolone for about 5 weeks now with very little relief. Its almost like her nasal passage is clogged or kind of like the sound a person would make when clearing out our sinus drainage. Its very similar to snoring loud or having sleep apnea but at times she gets very little air trying to breathe normally. This has been very stressful on us both and whats been even more difficult is when i would take her in for her exams her airway would almost open up completely, I thought this was due to her being scared and having an adrenalin rush causing her airway to stay open. I now think she may have an allergy but the Dr. seemed to think the Prednisolone would have taken care of that if that were the case. My poor Mowa has been through soo much and I feel guilty for having a surgery that did nothing but make her more miserable. Her breathing is so restricted she sleeps with her chin flat on the floor or her mouth extended outward, she cannot curl up or keep her chin tucked in without her air being cut off. This has been so sad for us both and im desperate to get her help. Could this be an allergy thats causing a swelling of her nasal tissue or the opening in her throat? I havr tried Benydryl, shes still on a daily dose of Prednisolone 5 mg. but nothing seems to help. If anyone of you has any advice I would love to hear from you, Im at a loss here and im working every day to keep her comfortable and i surely would like her to live out her full life. All her tests came back great even her bloodwork was perfect. Im not gonna give up on her and any help or advice you guys could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading my post and Mowa appreciates you also!
