My 8 year old neutered cat Alex, cough badly especially after eating. He had UTI. I thought that was the cause. He sounded like he had the croup. He brought up his meal or any hair with bile. He lost weight, fluids. But still wanted to play and have his belly rubbed. I took him to the vet many times. The glands on his neck was swollen on his right side. When the doctor touched it, he went into a violent coughing fit. Bile and all. They gave him steroids, shots for the coughing, medications for the UTI, etc.. The UTI was gone, but Alex still coughed up bile. One day, he coughed and would pee on himself. I always preferred natural/organic healing with my animals and myself.
The vets bills were killing me and no results, I stopped the steroids and did with turmeric. Instantly he stopped coughing and kept his food down. I had him in a huge cage with a little box so I could watch him. When he did cough he stayed in the little box instead of the floor. He started to gain weight and now is on his way of making a full recovery.
