Cat flu for example is caused by a single or combination of cat flu virus - feline calci virus and feline herpes virus. Merck Veterinary Manual (pps 760-761) says that 40-45% of chronic, feline upper respiratory diseases are caused by Rhino virus, Herpes virus, Calcivirus, Chlamydia or Mycoplasma.
In other words, there are diverse causes of cat-lung problems.
Please Note: Lung Infection - Nematodes (worm) in Small Animals.
Cats are commonly asymptomatic to "lungworm" (aelurostrongylus abstrusus), the most common lungworm of cats, is found in many parts of the world, including the USA, Europe, and Australia. They are small parasites (males 7 mm, females 10 mm), deeply embedded in the lung tissues.
Lung Nematodes worms (Roundworms or Threadworms), but heavy infestations may produce the following symptoms: Dry coughing, Wheezing, Dyspnea (shortness of breath), especially upon exertion, Lethargy and exercise intolerance, Anorexia, Fever. Symptoms are typically noticed in younger cats.

Medicimal Herbal Extract Concentrate Uses: Elderflower has traditionally been used to relieve fever, symptoms of respiratory catarrh and mucous congestion. Immune system boost, coughs, colds, flu, bacterial infections, viral infections, tonsilitis. Yarrow is a anti spadmodic properties, and often combined with Elderflowers for severe colds and flu virus symptoms. Cats' Claw (TOA free) helps eliminate s infections like Mycoplasma infections, which is often found in lung and respiratory infections. Cats Claw (TOA free) raises DD57 white blood cell counts. It modulates the immune system, raising it where appropriate and lowering overactive (auto immune) responses where necessary. The POAs in Cat's Claw work by supporting the white blood cells (WBC). These are the cells that help with immunity. One of the functions of the WBC is to gobble up, and eliminate bacteria and viruses. Olive Leaf either kills, or resists the multiplication of a broad range of viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and other parasites in your or your pets system.
From research and clinical experience to date, we can say that supplemental olive leaf may be beneficial in the treatment for conditions caused by, or associated with, a virus, retrovirus, bacterium or protozoan. Among those treatable conditions are: influenza, the common cold, candida infections, meningitis, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), encephalitis, herpes I and II, human herpes virus 6 and 7, shingles (Herpes zoster), HIV/ARC/AIDS, chronic fatigue, hepatitis B, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, malaria, dengue, severe diarrhea, and dental, ear, urinary tract and surgical infections. Many animals who live under a stressful enviroment (breeding or kennel shelters etc) will often become more susceptible to colds and viruses , therefore may benefit from long-term use of olive leaf in daily as a preventive agent.
MYCOPLASMA Infection can be eliminated with the herbal extract of the TOA free Cats Claw. When suspecting or treating symptoms of mycoplasma infection, continue treatment for min of 3 months to permanently rid infection from system so it does not return. (just add drops to meals)

If Feline Herpes Virus and Calici (effecting the lungs). Refer to: (Order code AN219) HAMPL Calici Rhinotracheitis and Herpes Virus formula. FHV and FCV are each found in about 40% of cats with upper respiratory tract disease. Other non-viral agents may also be involved, and it is not uncommon for a cat to be infected by more than one agent at the same time. FHV tends to produce more severe signs of disease than any other cause of upper respiratory tract disease. After incubation from 2 to 6 days, affected cats will become depressed, loss appetite, and suffer from fever and sneezing. Drooling may be seen if ulcers develop on the tongue. FCV is usually associated with milder disease than FHV, although it can be associated with a wide spectrum of clinical signs. These can range from inapparent infections where cats have no signs at all, to fatal pneumonia, especially in kittens. In addition, some strains of FCV found in modified live vaccines seem to cause an illness characterized by acute lameness and high fever with no respiratory symptoms. Therefore avoid vaccines, use alternative Cat flu oral nosodes and FCV FHV oral nosode immunizations. FCV may also be one agent or factor associated with chronic stomatitis (mouth uclers) in cats. *Refer to (AN062) HAMPL Mouth Ulcer drops.
Liver failure in cats is called "hepatic lipidosis" can happen. The next most common cause is "Cholangiohepatitis" caused when pet has loss appetite off on and and become thin. The liver becomes yellow, greasy, and enlarged. Signs of liver failure (especially jaundice) appear as liver function deteriorates. Drooling is common, and the cat may have an enlarged liver on palpation, X-rays, or ultrasound examination. Usually, the loss of appetite has been going on for two to three weeks, but cases do occur in which anorexia is present for just a few days. Often, hepatic lipidosis is secondary to a systemic problem, such as Hyperthyroidism, Diabetes mellitus, Urinary tract conditions, or Upper Respiratory Infections. For liver damages or failure HAMPL Liver Detox and / or HAMPL Jaundice homeopathic formulas.
PLEASE NOTE: We are hearing more and more cats (especially at catteries) who are getting very unwell.
We are suspection that these animals have a more complex infection and would be requiring Oral dosing treatment and use the Pneumo Set of drops. As lung infection is now been seen alot or missed when being diagnosed. (Refer to: AN112 HAMPL Pneumo Set. Support now rather than wait till they get worse. Prevention is better than trying to treat a full blown infection ie lungs (fungal or bacteria)
Use this remedy and see the results. If not 100% better within 5 days, then consider treating with formulas for lung, asthma or pneumonia drops.
