- Nov 18, 2012Following on from my questions about my cat..
can anyone tell me is there a definate problem with steroid/ or
dexamethasone injections and cats with heart problems?
does it depend on the type of heart problem?
im very worried as we were going to probably try her on a steroid next few
weeks if her gut probs wont stabalise, but now they foudn the heart prob
(just heard the gallop rythm on her) i am worried now abotu the drugs they
use on her for her ibd. and steroids were next. but read somewhere now that
steroid can bring on heart failure in a cat?! does anyone know if this is
true? or what the issues are?
