Silly question I suppose-- CHF semantics
- So if a cat has been in CHF-- does that mean that they are always in CHF or do they just go back to being an HCM kitty?
- Hi Christina
My HCM kitty has been in and out of heart failure. Heart failure is when
the heart fails to pump with enough efficiency and fluid starts to back up in
the lungs or body. It is possible to control the heart failure, as we did
with Trixi and go back to HCM. Trixi no longer has fluid in her lungs. Some
kitties will remain in heart failure though and need permanent diuretics.
