Q. My kitten is eight weeks old and keeps hard swallowing weezing and randomly gagging hard.
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. It sounds like perhaps your kitten has an upper respiratory infection, however the signs you're describing could be several different things. Kittens are especially prone to respiratory infections when they're very young, and I'm concerned that this one might be serious. Typically they just involve the nasal area and throat (and possibly the eyes) but the wheezing makes me concerned that she could be developing bronchitis or even pneumonia. I recommend getting her in to see a vet today.
