Severe Cases
Details:
Duration: 1 week to a full Moon, depending on the starting condition of the cat
Treatment:

Initially the treatment of Killingcough is simply that of Greencough. Cats who proceed much longer than a half moon with Greencough or proceed into convulsions become dire cases in which making the patient comfortable is the goal, rather than attempting to treat an ailment that no effective cure has been found.

The more stubborn and creative medicine cats still seek a cure for this deadly ailment when it rears its ugly head, choosing to experiment and cast their eyes to StarClan rather than surrender.

Residual Effects:

All cases of Killingcough result in death.

Complications:

All cases of Killingcough result in death.
