Re: Kitten with heart Murmur
- Hi Sharon
I am sorry your kitten may have PDA, it is a congenital disorder in kittens
and unfortunately not rare. She certainly fits the symptoms with her size
and there is also a murmur the vat can hear. There is a blood vessel which
is in the wrong place and she needs surgery to close the extra blood
vessel. This can be done by a cardiologist or an animal hospital or university.
It can be diagnosed by an ultrasound and once surgery is complete, the
prognosis is excellent.
