Remedies for Bronchitis in Cats
About Bronchitis in Cats
Chronic bronchitis is an inflammatory reaction of the airways that generally affects middle-aged cats. It causes a dry, hacking cough and can also involve gagging, retching, and the expectoration of foamy saliva. Any cough lasting two months or more is considered chronic bronchitis in cats. Without treatment, it can damage the airways and lead to mucus build up in the bronchi.
Chronic allergic bronchitis is a breathing disorder brought on by physical activity. This cough is typically seasonal but can occur at any time during the year.
Symptoms of Bronchitis in Cats
- Foamy saliva after coughing
- Shortness of breath
- Frantic attempts to inhale
- Bluish mucous membranes (in severe cases)

Other Supplements that are helpful in supporting bronchitis in cats are:
Alge-Ex, which will be helpful if the allergic bronchitis is brought on seasonally.
Stimmune to help with over histamine and immune support
Turmeric to help with overall inflammation
Natures Immuno to help with overall immune support
Use these cat bronchitis remedies together with treatment from your vet to provide comprehensive holistic support.
Variations of Bronchitis
Cats can also develop allergic bronchiolitis, an inflammation of the lower portion of the airway. Another condition, called tracheobronchitis can be caused by parasites, diseases of the mouth and pharynx, smoke inhalation, exposure to chemical fumes, or by chronic coughing caused by heart and lung disease. It is more likely to develop in cats with an existing respiratory disease or disorder of the lungs or airway.
Limit your cat’s exposure to potential irritants including cigarette smoke, dust, hair spray, and perfume. It is also important to visit the vet anytime your cat experiences breathing problems. Our Bronchitis Gold Relief Kit contains Stimmune, Resp-Aid, and BK Detox to help relieve the symptoms of bronchitis in cats, including chest and nasal congestion, immune system support, promoting healthy breathing and support for their long-term vitality.
