The last ten days I have lived at the vets.
Milli, (HCM and hole in heart) went into heart failure. Stomach
breathing, rate over 40 were the symptoms. She had a terrible ear infection
which antibiotics weren't touching and we had to give a single steroid dose.
Unfortunately she went into heart failure. So now she is on:
vetmedin 3.75mg twice day
atenolol 5mg twice
frucimide 20mg twice
spiro 7mg twice
fortekor 5mg twice.
Back to the vet tomorrow but she has recovered and is doing well. It's
always good to catch it early. Not sure where to go from here though, she's on
top dose everything.
Josh, my 17yr old HCM cat collapsed suddenly. Rushed to vet thinking was
the end. Vet said slight temperature, let's see how he goes. Came home, had
stinky diarrhoea and has been fine since! Not every emergency is heart
Arthur, 4 years old, went for his acupuncture:) A nice trip, he loves
Gus.. where to start.. 4 years old, 2 sisters with HCM. Wheezing and
coughing. Was on antibiotic and steroid for suspected asthma. Been like this 4
weeks. Today was hacking and choking, so he had the works, Xrays, throat swab,
alveolar swab, bloods, polyp on tonsil removed, a HUGE quantity of mucus
moved from back of throat/nose, allergy tests. Waiting for results, but
not sure if mucus like that fits asthma now.
Sorry for long post, it's just been one heck of a week!!
