- My cardiologist says NO steroids unless it is needed for something
very bad. So I apply that to my heart kitties as well. My cat got a
depo shot and we did not know she had HCM she threw a clot and was
gone in a week. So you better have a very good reason to try to give
any of my cats healthy or not. They pass them out too freely. Same
with our drs. I think the pills would have been milder. Could have
done it. I think yes you could cut back lasix and keep and eye out for
distress and then step it up. I Carmen on Beta blockers or something.
