47308Re: Anyone familiar with Restrictive Cardiomyopathy?
- Feb 28, 2013Hi Courtney
None of my cats have RCM, so I`m unfamiliar with the condition. All I can
say is ignore the prognosis, all my cats did. Some have lived years beyond
their expectation. If fluids are building up, she will need an increase in
lasix or addition of spironolactone. Maybe another medication added too to
help the heart. Its a balancing act to keep them out of heart failure.
Watch her breathing, count 15 secs when she is resting and times by 4. See
what is normal and then you can quickly see if fluid builds up. Did the
cardiologist say she was at risk of a bloodclot? If so, there are treatments
to help prevent that.
