Help your cat breath easier with RESP-AID, an all-natural herbal formula for the treatment of coughs caused by colds, allergies, asthma, bronchitis, and irritants like cigarette smoke. Cats are susceptible to upper respiratory infections and are highly contagious when ill. Respiratory problems in felines are caused by parasites and by bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Symptoms are similar to those seen in humans and include watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, fatigue, coughing, and difficulty breathing.

RESP-AID respiratory supplement for cats

To be taken twice daily. Determine your pet’s weight and then use the easy chart below to determine the correct dose. This is the minimum dosage.


Pet's Weight Dosage

0 - 15 lb = 0.5 ml

16 - 30 lb = 1.0 ml

31 - 45 lb = 1.5 ml

46 - 60 lb = 2.0 ml

61 - 75 lb = 2.5 ml

Over 75 lb = 3.0 ml

For small animals (rabbits, ferrets), avians and reptiles use 1 drop for every 2 lb of body weight. 


How to Administer
Shake well before use. The easiest method is to use the dropper provide and places the drops into your pet’s food or favorite treat. You can also use the dropper and squirt directly into the pet’s mouth.

Some pets can be finicky, if this occurs consider hiding the drops in foods most pet’s love such as fish, chicken or yogurt or a favourite treat. If your pet only eats dry food then soak a few kibbles at feeding time.

For Best Results

My rescue cat, Chloe, has chronic nasal congestion due to many years on the streets with no medical care. She also had a weak immune system. We were told she would have to be on antibiotics intermittently throughout the year when she gets her nasal congestion (often call snuffler cats). This has typically occurred for us every 2 months. Now that she has been on Resp-Aid, this has dramatically increased the time between episodes and the need for antibiotics. We are thankful for this product! *

I purchased Resp-Aid in early December, 2018 to support my elderly (~13yo) cat with asthma and frequent upper respiratory issues. At the time, she'd been on prednisolone since 2016 with limited success. In the three months since introducing Resp-Aid into her diet, I've halved her steroid dose from a daily 1ml to .5ml/day. On 1ml/day she struggled to breathe, and the steroids were raising her kidney enzymes and causing diabetes. With Resp-Aid, in combination with other NHV supplements, she breathes much more easily, is more active, and clearly more happy. She also takes: Felimm, Yucca, Milk Thistle, Mellit, and Multi-Essentials. Her fur is glossy and her purr strong. It's wonderful. *

I believe in natural supplement in pet health products. I've purchased 3 items from them so far and just started using Resp-aid for my kitty's upper respiratory infection and have high hopes for it. Funnily enough, I taste all my kitten's supplements and natural health products and NHV herb liquids are kind of lightly sweet, not overpowering taste and no bitterness, nothing my kitty will foam at the mouth to show his displeasure. Pleased with their customer service, thanks! *

When we adopted our calico cat Betsy, the rescue agency's veterinarian had indicated she was in good health. However, I noticed right away that she had a wheezy frequent cough, and since I have had asthma, suspected that as the cause. With Stimmune and Resp-Aid, over time, those attacks have abated to a few incidents a year--probably related to stress and the seasons. I have used many NHV products on our pets, each time with outstanding results that relieved their discomfort and prolonged their quality of life. I will now try adding Alge-Ex to her supplement to see if that will further help her. Thank you so much for your fine products. *

Our 2 year old Cat Sixx started coughing and having Asthma attacks about 10 times a day for 2 weeks. We started her on this along with just 4 days of a steroid and it was gone! I give it to her as a preventive daily and thank god it's been 3 weeks and no attacks! Will buy again and I always go the natural route! Thanks for such an amazing natural product! Do your cat a favor and try this. *

The Resp-Aid and Stimmune continues to help our cat Hunter with his sinus issues. I can tell if i don't give them to him, and it reminds me that just adding them to his food twice daily keeps him breathing easily. I love NHV and i love how the people at NHV reached out to me to ask how our 4 kitties are doing, and because another kitty of ours, Owsley, is having some pain and joint issues. recommended what might help him! NHV products are great, holistic natural products that i feel comfortable giving them!! Below is pictured our tri-pawed Hunter who has sinus issues and who is doing so well. *

My Mom's 12 year old domestic long hair cat, Buddy, has sinus problems several times a year with stuffy nose and sneezing. Resp-Aid reduces the symptoms to the point that his stuffy nose is MUCH improved and he rarely sneezes. He can enjoy life a lot more than before. This is evident when he scampers around the house like a youngster. I have recommended this company's products to several others because I have seen the results. *

An excellent respiratory aid for my kitty who has asthma. If I hadn't found RespAid on line, I would have had to treat him with steroids. Which is not a good thing. Thank you RespAid! *

When my cat suddenly started making chocking sounds and became weak, I was shocked to be informed my 1 year old British short hair had a tumour between his nose and throat. The breeder I had purchased him from in Austria wanted me to treat him with natural products. I contacted NHV, who provided me with excellent knowledgeable advice and service. The products I purchased were ES- Clear, Resp-Aid and Stimmune. My cat responded very well and he is now completely clear of any tumours. I very highly recommend the products and support of NHV. "Dover" is completely healthy and happy! *

I am about to order NHV OLD TIMER FOR CATS (for arthritis, muscle and joint pain) for my 15-year-old cat who is suffering from joint stiffness and arthritis. Over the years I have used a number of these NHV herbal remedies for my cats and they have all been wonderful. One of my cats had been diagnosed as showing the beginning signs of what could become CRF (chronic renal failure is an all too common disease and I had seen a pet suffer in the past). I ordered Tripsy for him and the subject never came up again. His kidneys remained healthy. I can highly recommend TRIPSY for use as a daily tonic in warding off CRF (and have recommended it to friends with cats). I have used NHV MARIS with great results - for constipation and general digestive health. I have also used RESP-AID™ FOR CATS and it has afforded relief to one cat for nasal/respiratory/sinus congestion. I also recommend NHV MULTI ESSENTIALS as an excellent general source for daily vitamins and minerals. I think you can mix these formulas with food but my cats do not seem to mind the taste – not at all. I use the dropper and give the drops directly from the bottle. While some of these products may seem expensive, when all is said and done if I can avoid having to use prescription drugs that come with many side effects, and ward off illness, they are well worth the price! *

The Respiratory NHV product has done wonders for my cat Savannah. She developed allergies about 3 years ago (Florida) and I did the “veterinary gamut” with shots & pills, etc. When I found the treatment online, I figured it couldn’t hurt to try it. Haven’t had to take her back in 12 mos! And Jan-April is the worst allergy season in North Florida. I use only the NHV respiratory drops now. She’s a much happier kitty! *

Bubbles - Montana | August 12, 2015

My cat Bubbles was diagnosed with lympho sarcoma of the nasal passages. She sounded terrible. It's been a month since she is on ES-CLEAR and I can't believe that the sounds she was making is almost gone. I also use the RESP-AID. It has to be the products as the only other thing we are giving her is [**pharmaceutical name removed]. She seems so much more comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful product. *

I have a 13 year old Persian cat. He struggles with respiratory issues and asthma. When I first tried this product I did give it to him twice a day. His condition has improved so much over the last year I now give him a preventive dose each morning and only give additional if/when he should have an attack. It works wonders....even the doctors are amazed. *

Timmy - New York | April 23, 2015

My cat Timmy is an adopted shelter cat. He has feline Asthma. I didn't like the side effects of the vet prescribed medication. I decided to give Resp Aid for Cats by NHV a try.
Wow does this stuff work. Timmy went from having 10-12 asthma attacks per day to maybe 1 a day. Incredible improvement. He is back to himself running around and playing with my other cats.I highly recommend this product!!! I am very satisfied with the results. *

Heartfelt thank you! My dog Teddy and cat Luna have been doing so much better since they have been on your products. Both Teddy and Luna are on Resp-Aid, BK Detox and Old Timer . The Old Timer has worked amazingly well for Luna's arthritis and teddy's nerve pain and muscle spasms. I am eternally grateful that you have created these amazing and powerful healing herbs to support the health and well being of my beloved animal companions. I wished more veterinarians offered your products as an option rather than meds. You are a Godsend! oxox *

S Bertrand - Montreal, QC | February 13, 2015

Hi folks at NHV! Bayou 2 12 year old male cat, has been plagued with chronic sinusitis since a kitten. Brave boy has learned to breathe partially through his mouth. It makes his breathing often very noisy: I call him Jacob on “bad days”, referring to the sound of a truck’s Jacob brake; you get the picture… He also has mysterious food allergies (he’s itchy), and regularly gets intense larynx spasms. Having studied in animal natural care, I’ve tried everything under the sun, (including homeopathy) at least to keep him off antibiotics or [**pharmaceutical name removed]. No miracle there. This was until I started to seriously implement your products in his daily routine: he’s been on ES Clear, Felimm and Resp-Aid (a system cleanser, immune booster and sinus help) for a little over 2 weeks now. On the second day, my husband was very worried that Bayou had not slept with us on the bed that night, because we barely heard him!! Today his nose is not as stuffed, his “headachy” days seem to be over. He’s not completely out of the woods yet (I had to start slowly with Resp-Aid, because his spasms were worse at first) and he has mucus coming out of his worst nostril, but frankly, other brands/plant combinations or medications would completely dry up and deeply jam his nostrils, and THAT was bad, which is not the case with NHV products. Also, he doesn’t have as severe episodes of scratching his tail and paws; His larynx spasms are sparse, and as a bonus,he’s not prone to as much anxiety. I’ve witnessed a couple of days where I heard him gently honk like a donkey over an object. To my surprise: OMG! would Bayou be recovering his sense of smell?! I know I will have to keep treating him for a while, or forever, and I’m not sure if he can completely recover from this condition, but I sure appreciate seeing him enjoying his cat life more! Thank you! *

Katherine - Texas | December 8, 2014

I adopted my cat from a no-kill shelter and few days later, the coughing began. I took her to the vet several times. The vets could never seem to figure out the exact problem, but would prescribe medication. After paying several expensive medical bills and for meds, my cat seemed to get better for a while. Then she got worse and I started researching her condition online.. Then I came across this Resp-Aid supplement and decided to try it. It's been 2 days and her wheezing has diminished. I can no longer hear her coming up behind me and the sneezing has stopped entirely. Even her eyes look brighter. I've been administering the drops directly which I can only do when she's relaxed in my lap. I think she even knows that it's helping. I'm going to continue this until her symptoms disappear entirely and then keep the remainder on hand for emergencies. *

Tammie - California | December 8, 2014

We had a rescued some cats. One of the kittens started getting watery eyes and sneezing. Fearing that the others might catch whatever it was, we took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with feline upper respiratory infection. He got a shot and some pills. After a week, the meds didn't seem to be working and the other kitties were starting to sneeze. Instead of another 100 dollar trip to the vet, we decided to try the Resp-Aid I found on your website. I used the dropper to administer the reccommended dosage in their wet and dry cat food. After two days, the initial sick kitty's eyes cleared up. After six days, all of them were cough and sneeze free. The best thing is that they never seemed to mind the taste. I'm a very happy customer as are the kittens.
Thank you. *

I have been giving RESP-AID to my 13 year old asthmatic cat since January. This really helped him breath much better. I love that it's all natural & much safer w/out the harsh side effects common with conventional drugs. I'm almost done w/ my 1st bottle & I will order another one soon. *
