Q. My cat is whizzing heavily! His pcv was 30 last week and he got a shot for his asthma. Normally that took care of all asthma symptoms, not this time

A. I recommend you return for s recheck as soon as possible as breathing difficulties put a strain on both lungs and heart and should be stabilized as soon as possible. A chest x-ray may be required to rule to complicating factors or you may need medication at home such as antiinflammatories or inhalers to control his asthma signs
