Résumé

Exhaled breath condensate has been collected in other species and used as a non-invasive method of evaluating airway disease by measurement of various markers in the fluid, including hydrogen peroxide, nitric oxide, leukotrienes and prostaglandins. We describe a novel technique for the collection of exhaled breath condensate from cats, which enabled collection of fluid and measurement of its hydrogen peroxide concentration. Further studies will be needed to establish the value of this technique in the investigation of feline respiratory disease.
