Re: Polar Bear had mini stroke 1/19
- Hi Mary
Polar Bear needs something for clots definitely. My Arnold had a stroke
with exactly the same symptoms aged 19. Cats recover well from stroke as their
brains don't have areas for movement/vision etc as clear as ours, so other
parts take over.
There are two causes of stroke, a blood clot or a bleed. My only concern
with nattokinase is its dissolves clots and could possibly let another bleed
happen if it were a bleed in the first place which has since clotted in the
brain. Other than that nattokinase is a safe pill and mine have been on it
years too. Plavix would help with a clot by thinning the blood.
Unfortunately there's no way to tell whether a clot or bleed except by CT scan which
they would do in humans.
Josh had a stroke, he has taken nattokinase since. Arnold died before we
could start him on something for clots.
