- Oct 3, 2002Hi Jeff,
Yes, is the short answer....do a search in the archives on "blood
clots" and the like...one of our members, Jonathan Rosenberg had a
kittie who had several clots and recovered... some other members have
also reported having kitties recover from clots but it is not the
norm, but it seems that blood clots have a wide range of severity and
debilitation, and when possible, recovery...from hardly even knowing
that it has happened, to the worst case scenario (PTS).
One idea I remember reading about is that it is possible with these
multiple incidents that what is going on is that one larger clot
formed somewhere and bits of it break off and then get stuck, either
temporarily or permanently...the theory is that this may be a natural
process of the body trying to break down it's own clot, but I cannot
remember where it is that I read that tidbit...
Somewhere I think I also read about someone here in this
group trying a new treatment/drug...sorry I'm not much help...I'm sure
you'll run across it if you do a search...
Good luck and please keep us posted!
