      Hello everyone,

      Just a update on Mao. Today he's feeling a bit better, he drinks and eats and goes potty. Also he can hold himself up and walk for a short distant (still wobbly though). Sometimes he growls and hisses, I think his legs still hurt from time to time. But it's great to see him getting better everyday.

      I have a few question on nattokinase. He's on Plavix, lasix, benazepril, and baby aspirin (every 3 days), should I subsitute it to aspirin? Anything I should be aware of if I decide to give him nattokinase?

      Thank you for sharing.

        Hi

        I`m glad he is feeling better. You can't give normal aspirin to cats, the
        doses would be too high, baby aspirin is the same drug but can be split to
        give the correct cat dose. I`m not sure if you can give natto at the same
        time as plavix and aspirin. I thought there was a risk to give them together
        of cerebral bleeding.

              Yes, that is correct. You do not give Nattokinase with any other blood thinners. Sometimes vets will give aspirin and Plavix at the same time. Aspirin thins the blood - Plavix keeps the blood from being "sticky". Nattokinase digests clots that are already formed and can inhibit the formation of new ones. If your vet is familiar with nattokinase and the use of aspirin and/or concurrently, they would know the exact correct dose to be used with both, but most of the time you take either Nattokinase OR aspirin...NOT BOTH.

                My dear kitty just passed away yesterday morning when my husband found him not moving on the floor just 20 mins after the shower. We rushed him to ER but they could no longer feel his heartbeat. He has been throught a few episodes since his initial one and everytime he could pull himself out.. And this time he sadly couldn't.. how empty the house could feel without his few meows... :(

                I'd like to thank for all your info and replies at the time I was feeling quite helpness and hopeless(mao was my first and only cat and I didn't have a lot of knowledges on what he was having). Even though he couldn't make it any longer but Im still glad I didn't choose to give up on him at the very beginning.

                I wish all of your little beloved ones could be a bit more fortunate and recover from what they're going throught.

I thought he's hurt like sprained the joint. I coudn't get him to the vet since it's sunday so I kept an eye on him. The next day he was recovered and walked just fine. However, on Wednesday morning, I found him crying on floor and when he walked he dragged one of his rear legs. Again, I thought the leg was hurt. I've had never thought about it would be life threating until he started panting.

Doctor told us Mao most likely was suffering from CHF and saddle thrombus, which could cause his rear legs to be partially paralyzed like that, also paws were cool to touch. But to be comfirmed she sent us to another vet to get ultrasound on heart the next day. At the mean time, Mao was hospitalized overnight.

I called the vet for advise, also seeing if putting him on IV would help. But since I couldn't really afford anyting right now, she said nothing really could be done and asked us to consider euthanasia.

                        Saddle thrombosis is painful and life threatening,  ER help should be seeked quickly!!

                        Please have him/her seen by a Dr soon so there is no suffering and any clot that can be dissolved IS dissolved.

                        My Tino had this and was in terrific pain (for no more than 1/2 hour it took to get him to hospital) 
                        please don't wait OK? 

                        Hate to sound "preachy" but it was the final end for my Tino and I'd hate for that to happen to you!
                        Best wishes,

                            When my cat had saddle thrombus everyone said euthanize. But my vet did a old school treatment of DMSO and saline injected in to each hind leg artery. He had blood flow back in a few days and we did a second treatment 3 days later. It took 2 months for him to walk normally. But I bought a brace to help him walk from ortho vet. But if it wasn't for the DMSO treatment my Baxter wouldn't have made it. I have to treat him once every 2 months because he keeps getting clots. I can't give Plavix because it makes him ill and throw up.

                            I really hope your baby gets better, but have patience and understand that the nerve damage can take 6 weeks to heal.
