- Sep 30, 2005I should have also added that she had to go under anesthesia a few
months prior as well (gas too), because of a weird paw issue she was
having, and a biopsy was needed, because they were worried it was
pemphigus, an autoimmune disorder that presents like that (it wasn't
though)...They had to be SURE if it was, though, because it would
require the use of dexamethasone (a steroid) and that's something you
don't want to give a heart kitty unless there is no other alternative.
They said Dex. was the safest of them all for heart kitties, but
fortunately it didn't come to that....
