Trixi and Maxi had scans today
- Hi all
Trixi and Maxi went to Liverpool small animal hospital today for their
scans. Trixi was diagnosed with HCM at 13 weeks old and had a heart attack in
2009 from which she recovered. Her scan showed no progression in her HCM
since the last scan and that she was stable. Her blood pressure was a bit low
but other than that there was no cause for concern. We are delighted.
Maxi's atrium was enlarged like on the last scan but his left ventricle is
now thickened so he has progressed slightly but is in no immediate danger
of heart failure. Maxi was also diagnosed as a kitten and is 5 years old now.
Both cats had kitten onset HCM and have been remarkably stable. We are
pleased with the scans and Trixi also had the hormone to measure heart attacks
checked and it was normal so she hasn't thrown a clot since the first one.
They're real little miracles and I like to quote Trixi's prognosis was 3
months and she is five in a week's time. She's a beautiful little torbie who
loves life and plays as much as she is able. We know every day is a
Only concern was Maxi's weight, once again nearly 8kg.. oh dear, it's diet
