      Hi all

      I want to report the success of using Spironolactone in my kitten, Trixi.
      She also takes fortekor, frusimide, Kaminox and the supplements cardiostrength
      and salmon oil. Trixi has a very aggressive form of HCM diagnosed at 12 weeks
      of age and she was very swollen and poorly towards the end of spring. The
      cardiologist wanted to try Spiro and since she had that, her swelling has
      disappeared completely and we have reduced her frusimide. All her kidney results
      are normal too. And she is more playful and active than before.

      So for those who had faith in Spiro, here is another success case. Spiro is
      very rarely prescribed in the UK for heart disease in cats, so we're a bit of
      a trial. It was a risk, but for us, for now, it's working.

      It's always worth asking about the alternatives as most cardiologists are
      willing to listen. Mine was supportive of using the Co Q and Carnitine.

      Milli, who has a congenital heart problem with a very large hole is going to
      be trialing either Vetmedin or Viagra if she becomes unstable. It's a
      heartbreaking choice to try a new drug which is untested, but without it, the
      'magic bullet' may be missed.

      Thankyou again for all the info on the supplements and the wonderful sharing
      of stories. This forum is an inspiration to me each and every day.

      Lyn and heart kittens, Trixi, Milli, Maxi.
