breathing problems in cat

Q Shari asks:

Hello I hope you can help as I am currently unable to get in touch with my own vet due to it being out of hours. For last 24 hours Carra has been having what would appear difficulty in breathing, she is breathing very fast and can be seen exhaling through her mouth. Perhaps she has a blocked nose ? I am currently recovering from a heavy cold and perhaps passed something on to her ? Her fast breathing concerns me, she is also making some very strange noises whilst breathing. She is elderly, perhaps 18yrs or so, she was a stray that came to me. We visited the vet last week as she was constantly sneezing and had a runny nose with a green discharge from one nostril, we were given medication and it seemed to clear things up but now her breathing is a great concern. I have kept the heating off as perhaps she is just blocked up but what can I do to help her ?

Q Our vet says: It really does sound as if she may need a vet even though it is the weekend. There should be an emergency service available in your area even when your own vet is closed. If you phone your vet they will have a message about out of hours services which are available.
