The article discusses the current state of knowledge of naturally occurring feline bronchopulmonary disease; using in-depth diagnostic evaluation and pulmonary function testing to emphasize the diversity of the clinical manifestations and pathophysiologic abnormalities of these cats. While of more clinical than experimental value to the authors' program which involves rats and guinea pigs, the review emphasizes the homology among species in the pathophysiology of airway disease and hence the relevance of animal research.
