Chronic Coughing in Cats

Chronic coughing is a serious medical condition in cats and affects our beloved feline companions worldwide.

Our main objectives are to better understand treatment practices of owners caring for cats with chronic cough, as well as to evaluate response to those treatments by comparing the frequency and severity of coughing BEFORE TREATMENT (time of diagnosis) to AFTER TREATMENT was started (current time).

If your cat has been diagnosed with a coughing disorder requiring treatment for longer than 2 months, we want to hear from you!

Please answer the survey regarding a single cat per household. If you have several cats with chronic coughing, please answer for your cat most recently diagnosed and with at least 2 months of treatment.
Please consider sharing your experience through this online 15-20 minute survey. We greatly appreciate your participation! Before beginning, please ensure you have your cat's medications or treatment journal available for reference, then let’s get started!

This survey has been approved by the University of Saskatchewan Behavioural Research Ethics Board (Beh-REB #2140). Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and all of your responses will be kept strictly confidential. Information collected though this survey will be used for research purposes aimed at better understand feline coughing and to help guide further investigations of this disorder.
