yes, the ultrasound could have shown fluid in the cavity if it was there.
CHF is only one of the possibilities and is the one that is most likely for
our babies that have rec'd treatment successfully for a number of years. My
vet has told me that I must prepare myself for this and for the moment when
I must let go bec it's harder and there is too much suffering past a certain
point for the pusscats. I think that you need to talk more to your vet....do
they have a support group in the office? Many do but you can also find
support groups in your city maybe and of course, we're all here.
Stay calm, Pebbles needs you to remain objective and calm and above all,
keep asking questions and more questions....as i always "say" the only
stupid question is one that wasn't asked! Knowledge is the most important
thing for you and Pebbles right now.

group died of a heart attack, and that it was felt that the heart attack
was precipitated by propranolol. The darling kitty had CHFand fluid in the
As you know Pebbles is on propranolol for HCM caused by
hyperthyroidism. Should I panic? Would the ultrasound not have shown fluid
on the chest if it was there?
Is CHF the end result of HCM?
