I have just successfully cured my 15 yr old cat from bad asthma that could not be treated with prednisone then inhaler.
The above did not do a thing to help Foxy so I looked online for natural help and gave it a try I am so glad I did.
I gave him half teaspoon organic virgin coconut oil a day either ... Let him lick off spoon, put it in his food or when he got wise put it on his lower chest to lick off and groom himself ingesting it that way .
Also I removed all house fragrances, candles, flowers, plants anything scented. It's important not to use essential oils as they can be toxic to cats. Be careful of deodorant sprays too as cats can't process some fragrances.
Then I got a hepa air purifier to remove all allergen a from the house. I got a stethoscope to listen to his lungs and breathing.
After a day he started vomiting up the toxic poisons in his system this lasted 2 day I saw him vomit just twice. This is the time not to worry it's natures way of getting rid , he also coughed a bit too, freeing his lungs.
After 7 days we had a totally wheeze free cat with clear lungs, good breathing great coat and playful like a kitten we have been so flumox that I just need to share this with the world and to stay with it and don't give in to harmful stuff from the vets you will have your cat back very happy and breathing normally.
The virgin coconut oil works by dissolving the coating of the virus or bacteria leaving the inside exposed then it dies , nothing else works like this stuff it's 100 percent safe for animals cats dogs etc .
Foxy says go for it he feels wonderful again x

I have a 1-1/2 year old 50 lb dog that developed a bad cough over a two month period this summer, and began having trouble breathing on a regular basis. She was given a 2-week course of antibiotics which did nothing. Over time it seemed it became more like respiratory attacks rather than a chronic cold/cough. It seemed like asthma. Exercise seemed to trigger it and make it worse. The vet ran a bunch of tests about a month ago, and $600 later we had ruled out many things, like lungworm and pneumonia. They wanted to do a bronchoscopy next, but before I went that route (because it's expensive, requires anesthesia, and not necessarily definitive wrt diagnosis), I decided to see if there were dietary changes that might help, and decided to give this experiment one week to test.
I researched for a full day online regarding alternative/natural cures for asthma, in people and dogs, and as a result, decided on this protocol: mega doses of buffered, powder Vitamin C (right now, we're at 2000 mg per day, given in 4 separate doses for max absorption), 2 tsp raw, chopped garlic/day (1 tsp per 30# body weight is very safe in dogs), and salmon oil supplement plus canned wild salmon added to her food. She went from very ill to 95% better in about 3 days. She's been running like her crazy self the last 3 days, fully off leash and at full speed, and has only coughed twice and wheezed once. So, I'm sticking with this for now, and it marvels me how such simple nutritional changes can make such a difference in a creature's health.
My six year old cat died yesterday four days after a Prednisone shot for mild asthma. All my cat did was wheeze a few times every week or so, nothing severe. She became lethargic 12 hours after this shot and never bounced back...
Serrapeptase was a wonder for my cat with Asthma! Prednisone almost killed him, ended up in the hospital with his liver failing, kidneys were also affected. They took him off Prednisone, but we were still told that the prognosis was grim. He is old, but now alive and well (knock wood). Just give your cat maybe 20,000 SU. You have to buy the minimum strength of 40,000 (on-line). I emptied the capsule and gave half. Good luck!
My little cat has asthma. Doc prescribed prednisolone, cat went nuts for two days. I took her off them. I now give her serrapeptase, it is an antiflamatory. Works wonders. I also give four drops of healthfood store hydrogen peroxide that is 3% strength in her water and I give her a teaspoon of coconut oil, warmed up. She is doing awsome on this.

My poor distressed cat! She had asthma when younger and it recently flared again -- big time! My daughter, a multi-cat owner, suggested:
- Keep floor and rugs clean and vacuumed.
- Dust weekly with a damp cloth.
- Ozone filtration machines for kitty litter area (small one) and for the whole house (large one).
Did all three and she improved within hours. I'm also doing some other things she suggested.
- Daily half tsp of Trop... coconut oil on paw.
- A daily capful of apple cider vinegar in her large water bowl.
- Using a pine based, low dust kitty litter.
The most important of all these was to keep my floors clean -- after all, that's where our cats spend the most time. Right?
