Question by Beauregard: for cat asthma are there any treatments beyond bronchodilators, aspirator,steroids?
50 mg a day Theophylline led to increased severe asthma attacks,soft stool and general listness. Discontined. Presently on 5mg pernisone twice daily, more alert and mobile, firm stool but mild attack today. He is not a lap cat, will only tolerate being rubbed, not petted. Does not like to be held even before he was sick so an aspirator would not be effective. Am looking for relief for my cat that improves his ability to breathe. Don’t expect him to be cured just want him to get better. Any suggestions, natural remedies that work? Or what should I ask of my vet now?

firstly I would ask this question in the animal section and maybe a vet would read it and help you. Secondly I would discuss this with your vet, there are other medications to take. Prednisolone is purely to reduce the inflammation of his airways and reduce allergies.
Thirdly work out why he has it…. allergy to something, overweight, etc.
