Ace is 5. He is struggling to breathe and needs medication fast. Vet thinks he may have pneumonia and asthma. Please Help Ace breathe.

My husband rescued Ace as a baby (only 6 weeks old). A neighbor kid was chasing him trying to hit him with a broom. The poor little guy was terrified. He brought him home to live with us. He is so sweet and loves to cuddle even with our dogs. He is a daddy's boy always wanting to be with his daddy (probably because he saved his life). Ace fetches and follows his daddy everywhere. His favorite place to be is in daddy's lap.

Ace is now 5 years old. Recently he developed breathing issues where he was out of breath after chasing our other cat, sometimes with a coughing episode. His breathing has gotten worse. We took him to the vet. He was diagnosed as possibly having pneumonia. The vet also thinks he may have asthma. They won't know what is wrong for sure unless he has x-rays which we cannot afford. I am disabled and my husband is self employed in the building industry. He has been trying to get work but the economy has really hit us hard. We sacrificed paying other things just to take Ace to the vet, but we cannot afford any treatments. The vet said just for the exam, x-rays, and anitibiotic medication it will be around $300.00. He will need to be seen again for a recheck after he starts the antibiotic which adds more cost. Vet said if it is asthma he will need ongoing steriod treatment as well. Because of not knowing what is wrong, I do not know how much it will all cost especially if he needs ongoing medication. We need your help. We are not financially able to get Ace the treatment he needs. I cannot bear seeing him struggle to breathe anymore. Please help us with getting our baby better. Any help is greatly appreciated to help this little guy breathe!
