      Hi Blake,

      I don't have much to add but please make sure you inform the breeder. A good sphynx breeder wants to know this information. They spend a lot of time trying to eliminate heart issues from their lines however that takes time and being informed by pet owners when there are issues.

      Be positive and spend time with him.

      This group is very support and we are here for questions.

      Hi Blake

      I`m sorry Schmutz is in heart failure. Unfortunately it is often the first
      symptom, cats hide it well. Has he seen a cardiologist and had an
      ultrasound or was he diagnosed by xray? It is essential he sees a cardiologist if he
      hasn't seen one, they can see the exact condition of the heart.

      I`m not sure what fragmin is and have never used it, so can't comment on
      that, but hopefully someone else can. Looking through the messages in this
      forum, I noticed lovenox mentioned as an alternative. Do a search for fragmin
      here. Nattokinase also dissolves clots and that is a natural supplement.

      Don't worry about prognosis too much. Schmutz didn't hear that. My kitty
      Trixi was given 2 months to live and that was 6 years ago.
