48293RE: [FH] What is considered high BP for a kitty?
- Jun 24, 2013Hi Feline Heart Group-
At the vet this past Thursday, my kitty Samson had a average systolic BP of 180. The vet advised to put him on Norvasc 1.25mg once per day. I asked if I could bring him back in with me present and have his BP taken again. Today I took him in, and the sound of the Doppler really scared him, but I just kept talking to him and she took 3 readings 145-155-165, so the average was 155. She says that he does not need Norvasc. His diastolic was 110.
I wonder how many kitties end up on BP meds unnecessarily because they are very stressed out at the vet when their BP was being taken.
