38167Re: Breeders Perspective
- Dec 1, 2009Hi
I do have a question, are we talking HCM developing in young cats? I have/had 2 cornish rex cats that had/have HCM. I lost my Domino at 18 1/2 to heart failure but we are pretty sure his HCM was secondary to hyperT. Now my 20 year old rex was diagnosed when he was 15 and is still hanging in there. In my case neither breeder is still breeding cornies. but if they were, should they have been notified about HCM in older cats?
