Asthma is an allergic reaction to an environmental stimulant. Pets with asthma usually show signs of respiratory signs such as coughing, wheezing, and breathing issues. If your pet has pale or blue gums or tongue, or is open mouth breathing, you need to see a veterinarian immediately.

There are a few things you can do to help prevent your pet from having an asthmatic episode.
