Re: cat ckd hcm Kiki
I had this happen with Coco had last few months.
She was on Sub Q's for her CRF but then she got CHF she also was on 8 meds at the end.
They can try giving the fluids by the kidneys instead of the shoudar neck.
Can you add more water to the food.
It became very complicated with Coco.

It's a balance of fluids and heart medications. Your friend's cardiologist
should be able to advise. I haven't had this in my cats so I hope someone
else can help with advice on fluids.
