Re: [FH] Digest Number 1602
- I haven't posted in here in quite some time. I lost my 18 year old to
HCM 8 weeks ago today. When he was initially diagnosed he was given a
progonis of a few days to live. They actually didn't think he would
make it through the night and I prepared to bring him home to die. He
lived 2 more wonderful, happy years. So don't let diagnosis rule you.
It may not be true or it may be. There is hope and you are doing the
right thing by coming to this group and learning what you can. This
group turned me onto Coq10 and I am sure someone on this list will do a
better job of telling you what it is. Its a coenzyme used in humans with
heart conditions and now some are using it with pets. My vet didn't use
it prior to me but I am a believer that it helps. I also had my cat on
taurine suppliments which I got from a vitamin store along with the
coq10. I wish you luck with your sweet guy. Its a rollercoaster ahead
of you but once you learn what you need to and they find the right
combination of meds it can even out and your cat can live a great
quality of life as mine did. I hope that for you. Take care.
