Re: [FH] Cat Crouching alot
- hi Lisa,
The crouching might be that he's uncomfortable, but not necessarily from fluid. Sometimes they do that when they're nauseated too. My angel Snowball did that a lot from nausea. If you listen to his heart with a stethoscope, if there is fluid it may sound like crackling or popping noises. When my angel Sweetie had fluid, her respiration and heart rate would always go up. If his breathing is okay, that's a good sign.

I have one more question about my cat who recently had to have his chest tapped. He had 350 ml of fluid drained. It looks like he will have to go on a higher dose of lasix and possibly something else. I am finding that he is crouching alot more than he used to. Is this because he may have fluid build up? His BPM is ok.
