Maybe it's related to not having the technology to do the echo or the
personnel to read it.....also, ddid they have a bp machine for cats? I'm
glad that you did find a good vet finally and good for Oz and you that you
didn't give up and kept trying...also, sometimes, since the care is costly,
many vets think the caregivers/owners can't afford the cost and don't even
want to try.....but good for Oz that he has you!

I am just in shock to hear these wonderful stories! I guess that since I
to fight to find a vet that would try to help Oz instead of pts, I just
assumed that treating with heart meds was a "new" discovery.
It did cost alot to get Oz stabilized, but the bulk of the cost was in
providing emergency services (oxygen, 24 hour care, etc) until he could have
the echo. The echo itself wasn't that expensive, and so I am wondering why
more vets don't suggest it. I went to three before anyone even mentioned
CONGRATS to Pum!!!!
