Q. My cat is 8 mos to a year old . She has a bad chest cold . Really congested . What can I do at home to help her . She is spaded and up to date on vac.
A. You can try a steam bath....don`t actually put the cat in the water though! The way we do it is to put the cat securely in a cat basket and then next to the basket have a bowl of hot/near boiling water with a drop of Olbas oil (or similar) in. Put a towel over the whole lot (Basket & bowl) and leave for 20 mins allowing the steam in to the basket to help clear the cats airways. You can do this several times a day. If it doesn`t help or the symptoms don`t clear up after a couple of days or if the cat deteriorates then you need to see your vet.
