hi everyone, i am new to this forum and wondering if anyone has any advice really. bit of back ground- my cat is cleo who ive had from a stray and ive had her 5 years and i think she was about 2 maybe when i got her so she must be at least 7 years old by now. She originally had some breathing problems it particularly flared up after she had been playing and running about. It was more noisy breathing- mainly sounding like she smoked about 40 cigarettes a day really. She didnt seem to struggle to breath and didnt need to open her mouth and didnt pant or anything like that. I had taken her to the vet and first of all they thought it might be asthma as they told me cats can be quite prone to that. They gave me some powder to put on her food to clear up mucus and sent me home. She didnt seem to get any worse or better and it didnt seem to bother her so we just muggled on as we were. Ive since been back again ( a couple of months ago) for something unreleated and the vet picked up the breathing, they had a listen to her chest said they didnt think it was asthma as it seemed to be mainly (the noise) coming from her nose, they gave her antibiotics and sent us home. I queried polyps with the vet as i had been researching her symptoms the vet just said it was possible but kind of tried to put me off by saying its very hard to remove or see because of the cats head and the instruments and she will have to be put under etc. Fast forward to today and she seems to be getting worse, more noisy, sneezing fits somestime and what ive noticed recently is, the white eyelids seem to be showing on both her eyes. Am i right in thinking they arent meant to show at all? she doesnt have any trouble with her ears and no head tilting and no eye bulging and the eyelids show the same on both eyes, so im more inclined to think its nasal polyps rather than ear polyps. has anyone got any experience of this? is there anything that can be done other than surgery? and if it does go down the surgery route, anyone have any idea of the cost? i assume there will be tests before to confirm they are there? ive read things such as ct scans and such. i dont want to leave it any longer, she seems ok still eating sleeping and playing but her breathing is very noisy (doesnt appear to be struggling though) and she snores when sleeping, but i am worried that if it is a polyp it can grow and be dangerous. sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for your help.
