      Ilun,

      Nattozyme has the property of being
      able to dissolve clots that already
      exist. Plavix does not. So since
      Zhu is dealing with a clot right
      now, I think the Nattozyme is a
      good choice.

      You could always ask your vet
      about using both Nattozyme and
      Plavix. At least one person here
      gave their cat both aspirin and
      plavix.

      As far as which might be better to
      prevent a clot in the future (Plavix
      or Nattozyme), I do not know. It
      has not been very well studied.
