James, my male cat tabby cat, have cough
Hi, I sounds as though it could well be a durable he is having trouble bringing up, it can occur for a few days at a time. Given his age this would possibly be the most likely, however unless he is seen by a vet we cannot rule out something more sinister. Coughs and exercise intolerance are classic signs of heart conditions. It may be mild and he just needs some help. I would take him to a vet just to get this ruled out. Good luck

Riley, my female cat unknown, has vomit, much mucus in the nose, and gagging
This cold be either due to a bad tasting substance she ingested - that can cause this reaction, or she is nauseous, again probably from something she ingested. In these cases if it doesn't resolve within 12 hours - you should take her to the vet.

Dd, my male cat british shorthair, has cough, loads of mucus in the nose, and sneezing
I think that your vet has done a good job. upper respiratory problems are usually viral so an atibiotic treatment won't help (antibiotics don't cure viral infections). If he doesn't get better with the VibraVet they will have to perform more tests. Xrays, bacterial culture of the mucus, etc. If he has ulcers and respiratory problems it's not the same as if he has dental problems. From what you initially said he doesn´t have dental problems but oral ulcers caused by the virus that causes his respiratory problems, usually an herpesvirus. Finally, almost 100% cats are positive to FCoV, that doesn't mean that he has a diesease caused by that virus. Kind regards

Hello! It's probable that your cat got contagious in the foster home. Eye inflammations and discharge are very often connected to conjunctivitis, most commonly caused by herpes virus which is highly contagious among cats. Also, cough in cats can have several causes: viral illness, bronchitis, asthma, heart worm, etc. If your cat has fever, it means the infection is now severe. You should take your cat to the vet as soon as possible, so he/she can perform a complete checkup to determine the cause and give her an appropriate treatment. Don't self-medicate your pets. Keep in mind that not knowing of medications and their compounds, as well as the effect they have on our pets can produce serious harms. We at Barkibu, nor the veterinarians cooperating with us, are not allowed to give you any diagnosis and treatment, as that is not possible without seeing the animal. All the best.

Hello! It is recommended to take your cat to the veterinarian as it could be heart or parasitic problem, or a hairball among other possible diagnoses. Your vet will do an ECG and take blood sample which will help to determine the correct diagnose and give your cat an appropriate treatment. All the best.
