- Oct 19 7:48 AMI am sorry about Lucky's dx but I am glad you had the ultrasound done. Only way to be sure you have the right treatment plan. I am not familiar with the meds prescribed outside of lasix so hopefully someone else here can speak to whether they are the best ones for Lucky's dx?
My little girl does not have the same disease BUT she has the rarest form called DCM and was given 3mos tops. I just wanted to reach out and say in 3wks Boo will have lived an entire year since her heart failure which led us to the dx. So no one can tell you how long Lucky has. Every cat is different.
I know how daunting it is.... but try to stay hopeful and as best you can don't show Lucky your stress. That was the best advice I received when I learned the news about my Boo. My stress only stressed her out, we need to be strong for our babies. It helps them :-)
We will say a prayer for both you and Lucky.
Keep us posted on how you are doing.
Laurie and Boo

After my Lucky was diagnosed with heart disease i decided 2wks later to do the ultrasound. I had a feeling that it was bad...anyway, it turns out that Lucky has the worst form called "restrictive cardiomyopathy" the cardiologist told me that he has 6 to 9 months tops.
I'm devastated of course...my Lucky is only 6. He's on lasix and Fotikor.The vet also said i should give him baby aspirin every 3 days. I've spent over 2000$ so far. And i wouldnt care if it meant that Lucky would be with me for a while... I worry that he might have an episode when theres no one home. Sometimes, i wish he would die peacefully in his sleep.
For the past 2wks i havent stopped crying, im so emotional because this cat is so attatched to me. He's soo special i cant bear to think of him dying.
I just wanted to know if anyone has ever had a pet with this kind of heart disease.
