When I took her to the last vet, she only had a bad cough once or twice a week. They just felt her lungs and told me she had no liquid in her lungs. She now has it every day. I strongly suspect my cat has asthma. An X-ray will tell me if it's cancer or asthma or enlarged heart or any other number of causes. Given that the last vet didn't do a very good job, I'm switching over to Cat Clinic of Seattle (going in the first week of April). I'm looking at the following expenses:
blood work $88
And possible stool sample test again, I don't remember that that costs. I love her plenty and she's worth every penny. And quite frankly, I expected an X-ray to cost a ton more. I just hope after spending all this money that these folks can tell me what's wrong with her. I just want to know. It's the most heart breaking experience I've ever known watching helplessly as she coughs until her whole body shakes and she has to struggle for breath.
