- Dec 7, 2011HI Kim
I am sorry to hear about Tanner being poorly. Your vet is correct that it
is a balance to treat heart and kidneys, one treatment adversely affects the
other. The key is balance but the heart treatment has to come first. What
medication is he on and what dose? Has he had blood tests to measure his
With weight loss and his age, has he had his thyroid hormone level checked?
That can cause secondary HCM and should be checked in any older kitty
losing weight. It is going to be a balance of diuretics and subcutaneous fluids
which you can give him. I`ve never needed to do that so someone with more
experience should help there.
Are the little bumps under the skin or on the skin?
