Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Sorry to hear of this, are there any signs to changes with his breathing? Any snuffling/sneezing? Is he walking normally? Any signs of weight loss?
Sorry for the delay, I was having some technical difficulties
It sounds like he has had quite thorough investigations which is good. Given the time frame and lack of xray findings, a chest/respiratory infection seems less likely. A chronic upper respiratory illness (either infection or inflammatory) would sound more likely. Especially with a 'clicking' sound to breathing which can be excess mucous shifting in the airways. Have you tried changing to a different/dust free bedding material?
Is he housed indoors or outdoors? How long has he been on dust free bedding?
Yes it could do
Ok, one thing I would suggest would be to look at getting him an air humidifier, as dry air can sometimes contribute to the symptoms you are seeing. You can also look at nebulising him with a product known as F10 solution, this can help kill bacteria and fungal spores which can.also worsen airway irritation.
Ok great. Yes I would try it all the time for 2 weeks and see if it helps, if not then maybe try the F10 too. I will find you a link for the product

I hope that helps? Please let me know if you can see the information above.
Let me know if you need any further.
I would use it most of the time, but you may be able to reduce it to just a few hours a day
