43430Re: [FH] Heart disease seems common??
- Oct 2, 2011My cats are all rescue cats of no particular breeds. Two were totally tame cats (both w/heart disease) and the others were kittens that I socialized from feral colonies.
Ones that passed: a dsh gray girl, dsh black boy, dsh brown tabby male. Ones that I still can adore: a dsh white girl, dmh white boy. The one cat that does not have a heart disease diagnosis (yet?) is a dsh tabbie/tortie girl, she's the sister to my dmh white boy.

That is quite interesting. What breed of cats do you have? Both the ones with heart disease and the two without. Are they all the same breed?

Subject: [FH] Heart disease seems common??
Of the 7 cats I've had in my home since 1994, 5 have/had heart disease. 2 died of heart disease and 1 died of something else and the last 2 are doing fine. These last two have had murmurs since kitten hood. My one other cat shows no symptoms but I've never had her checked out and don't plan to. Now I'm thinking heart disease is more common than is thought or have I had bad luck. I hear of cats being found dead when the guardian comes home and I'd think that's usually heart disease.
Has anyone studied Vet records, like they sometimes do with the big corporations that own a lot of Vet offices, to see how common heart disease is?
