- Jan 4, 2007Sara,
I just wanted to add - because Leah's post reminded me
- that whether or not plavix works to prevent clots in
cats hasn't been proven. If I recall correctly, it
does seem to help in _in vitro_ (test tube)
experiments, but whether that translates into
inhibiting clot formation in a whole cat is not yet
My cat has not had a clot, but Meredith with Monkey
has a sister who had a cat who did get a clot despite
the Plavix treatment. Her sister did think that the
Plavix held off the clot formation.
There is a folder at the main message board with some
articles about nattokinase. I asked my cardiologist
about it and she was a bit dismissive as it has not
really been well studied in cats and she said if it
were her cat she would not want to experiment but she
left it up to us. . .
