Re: Elevated blood levels in heart kitties
- We used ProBNP as an initial indicator to see whether Rascasse (also crf) needed a heart scan. It confirmed there was damage, but we still needed the scan for a full diagnosis.
My vet had not wanted to bother with proBNP, she wanted to go straight for the scan. I insisted on proBNP as we were running other bloods at the time anyway and didn't want the stress of a scan if there was no need.
The scan revealed HCM, not the blood test.
Hope that helps
