      This is actually what started this whole HCM journey for my boy. He was doing the same thing you are describing. On the xray i was told that that because his heart was so big, it looked like it was pushing his larynx away from where it should be. Since we started all his meds, i noticed less episodes. I would definitely have them check it out when you go if it wasn't there before. Not sure if that helped or not. Best of luck!

      Since I am new to this and have seen you write about coughing, I wanted to clarify. Charlie has an 'episode' ( not sure what else to call it) last night and this morning but I don't know if it was coughing or if he was trying to bring up a hairball. Do they look/sound the same?

      He has been doing well with the Lasix and Atenolol. His appetite is good, he is playing and even mischievous at times. So I am not sure what the 'episodes' were. It looked like the other kitties when they are working on a hairball. He goes for blood work and check up on Friday afternoon so I will bring it up to the vet then, but just wanted to see if you guys could give me any info.
