Breathing Problems In Cats And Dogs

Breathing problems in dogs and cats can be very frightening. Breathing problems can be due to infections, viruses, cancer, heart disease and collapsed trachea. In addition to the care your pet is receiving from your veterinarian, breathing problems can also be helped using natural supplement. Ask Ariel supplements have been used successfully to help pets with breathing difficulties using veterinary-approved supplements since 2005. These supplements are all-natural, third-party tested for purity and have been safely used for pets of all sizes. If your pet is also coughing, please read our article that explains why a pet may be coughing.
What to Know About Upper Respiratory Infections in Cats and Dogs
Upper respiratory infections in dogs and cats affect the upper part of their airways: throat, trachea, nasal cavities and bronchi and are viral in nature, antibiotics are not especially helpful (just as with human colds or flu). It can be discouraging to watch your dog or cat suffer long-term with this chronic condition and there may be bouts of hope as the symptoms wax and wane. While conventional veterinary medical options are limited, holistic treatments for URIs can make a significant improvement in the pet's life.
A holistic approach encompasses a two-fold approach: changing your pet's diet to strengthen the immune system and using a few supportive supplements to control the virus.
·         Sneezing
·         Nasal Congestion
·         Conjunctivitis
·         Fever
·         Discharges from the nose or eyes
·         Lack of appetite

Feline Asthma
Feline asthma is the most commonly diagnosed respiratory disease. Asthma symptoms can be similar to chronic bronchitis and even sometimes mistaken for hairballs (although hairballs can cause retching and vomiting). If your cat displays symptoms, it's important to contact your veterinarian right away. Feline asthma is a condition that results in breathing difficulty, coughing and wheezing. It is characterized by chronic inflammation of the respiratory airways that can be triggered by allergen exposure, chemical inhalants, and possibly an autoimmune response. Feline asthma symptoms are distressing for pet owners to witness and hard on your kitty too. That is why it is so essential to make the lifestyle and holistic changes along with the treatments from your veterinarian in an effort to help your cat lead as normal life as possible. 

Symptoms of Feline Asthma
·         Coughing or Hacking
·         Panting or Open Mouth Breathing
·         Hunched Shoulders
·         Wheezing (almost sounds like a whistle)
·         Labored Breathing After Exertion

During an asthma attack, the passageways in your cat's lungs become inflamed and constricted making it very hard for your cat to breathe. An attack can quickly become a serious incident, so if your cat shows any signs of respiratory distress, contact your veterinarian immediately.

While there isn't a cure for asthma, the symptoms can be well managed using a combination of conventional veterinary treatments and holistic care. Conventional veterinary treatments for feline asthma include the use of corticosteroid drugs to reduce inflammation along with a bronchodilator to open up the air passageways. Conventional medications have side effects though, including the potential for diabetes and increased infections, so using holistic and lifestyle changes are important to help minimize the need and frequency of them. Please note that natural treatments for feline asthma are not meant to be a substitute for conventional veterinary treatments. Feline asthma is a serious condition and your veterinarian needs to be involved in the regular monitoring of your cat's symptoms and medication usage. But, using a holistic approach can slowly improve your cat's well-being and over time, the frequency and severity of asthma attacks should improve reducing the need for medication.

Steps To Help Your Cat With Asthma Naturally

1) Reduce Exposure To Airborne Allergens, Air Pollutants And Household Stress
·         Don't allow anyone to smoke near your cat or inside your home. Second-hand smoke is a huge trigger for feline asthma.
  • Reduce exposure to allergens such as pollen, mold and dust from cat litter.
  • Avoid using scented candles, air fresheners and perfumes
  • Buy an air purifier and replace filters regularly.
  • Use natural cleaning products such as cleanser and avoid detergents with strong fragrances.
  • Keep potential stressors to a minimum. Loud noise, excited children, house guests can be stressful for your cat.
2) Use Supplements To Support Immune Health And Reduce Inflammation 
  • Trio of three liquid immune support formulas (Silver Immune, QuentaSAN drops and NotaSAN drops)
  •   Easy to use drops (with minimal smell and taste - no alcohol)
  • Reduces inflammation which triggers asthma attacks
  • Clears up sinuses, nasal tract and improves breathing
  • Gentle, natural formulas that pets can take along with antibiotics
·         Supports your pet's own immune system to reduce viral flareups or asthma attacks
Natural Treatments For Feline Asthma

QuentaSAN Drops - A powerful anti-viral, anti-infection homeopathic remedy. These homeopathic drops are the first line of defense with any upper respiratory condition. QuentaSAN drops work best when combined with NotaSAN drops. The two formulas work synergistically to control infections and inflammation. QuentaSAN seems to be especially helpful for lung-related health issues. Many cat owners have reported excellent results relieving continual discharge, runny nose and sneezing related to viruses when QuentaSAN and NotaSAN drops were administered.

NotaSAN Drops - A powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-infection formula. These homeopathic drops are especially important for relieving allergy symptoms. NotaSAN, when combined with QuentaSAN works very well to control chronic upper respiratory infections, asthma, eye and nasal discharge. The two formulas are tasteless drops that can be easily administered to cats.

Silver Immune Support For Pets - Easy to use, anti-infection liquid. These nontoxic drops are safe for tiny kittens and shown in research to help reduce viral replication. By reducing infection, inflammation is reduced in the membranes, reducing mucous making it easier to breathe.

Power Probiotic - This multi-strain formula can be sprinkled on food or eaten by itself (many cats like the taste of it). Power Probiotic promotes the growth of friendly bacteria which aids your cat's immune system. Why is this important? The majority of your cat's immune system resides in the the intestinal tract. Using Power Probiotic is essential if your cat has taken steroids or antibiotics as these medications reduce the population of friendly bacteria. Friendly bacteria fight off pathogens, bad bacteria and viruses in an effort to keep your cat healthy. Power Probiotic is essential for all cats but especially those diagnosed with feline asthma.

Amazing Omegas
 - Omega 3 fatty acids can reduce symptoms and inflammation in asthma patients. Amazing Omegas is the absolute best fish oil for pets, naturally derived from sardines, mackerel and anchovies. Packed in glass bottles, it is free from toxins and PCBs. It only takes a few drops to help your kitty. One caveat is that if your cat is extremely allergic to fish, there is a possibility that fish oil could also present a problem. Generally what triggers allergies is the protein found in fish which is not present in the oil. However, if this is an issue for your kitty, then Flax Seed Oil may be the next best alternative.

Not Sure What To Feed Your Pet?

To strengthen your pet's immunity, feeding a hypoallergenic, low carbohydrate diet with a novel protein is helpful. Many quality pet foods, even "holistic brands" contain too many starchy carbohydrates which convert to sugar weakening your cat's immune system.
Please include your pet's diet and treats on the order form at checkout, along with your pet's health issues. Based on our extensive experience helping cats with viruses and autoimmune conditions, we will include a diet suggestion on the packing slip that comes with the product directions.
