Pharo scared me again last night...
- Pharo, my HCM kitty has been acting like a normal 2 1/2 year old
kitten for the past week, but last night when I went to check his
breathing it was REALLY fast. Even when he was sleeping it was around
66 breaths per minute. We gave him his 3rd dose of Lasix at 11:30pm
and after an hour it went down to 60. Should I be really alarmed at
this? At the emergency last weekend they told me to give him the
Lasix 3 times a day for 5 days, then go to 2. Today is the day he
gets only 2...I am worried. Do you guys think I should keep doing 3
times a day since he has labored breathing?? He also threw up this
morning. At the beginning of the week his breathing was around 49
breaths per minute. Last night it was really uneven and fast, but his
gums looked good...not blue. I am really scared that I am going to
have another emergency this weekend. What do you think I should do???
