      Hi Jean

      You can give fluids to cats with HCM but with great caution. Giving fluids
      can push them into heart failure. Pancreatitis is difficult to treat and
      the usual is steroids, but again they are unsuitable for cats with heart
      problems I would take the advice of the cardiologist and try and balance the
      two conditions.

      Wait until you cat is sleeping and count breaths (15 seconds and times by
      4) Find waht is the normal rate and what looks normal breathing. If, after
      fluids, the rate increases or there are other changes, you can act quickly.
      Over 30 minute is concern, over 40 emergency.
