Re: Nattokinase or aspirin?.. and Chris-Saturday
- Hi Carol,
I don't have any experience with natto, but Li Li did take the baby
aspirin (1/2 baby aspirin twice a week) and plavix (18.75 mg 1x/day).
She did ultimately die from a clot, but may have a lot sooner if not
for the clot prevention. She had a very large left atrium and
apparently that posed a risk for clot formation. Every cat's risk
profile for clots is different, although I think all HCM cats are at
some risk for them. My vet said that they are doing clinical trials
with aspirin/plavix/low molecular weight heparin and various
combinations of them. Earlier data indicated that aspirin/plavix combo
was as effective as aspirin/plavix/LMW hep, but that may change as
these trials continue. I don't know how natto fits into the mix.
Hopefully others will be able to comment on that, as some have
experience with it.
