      Hi Everyone,

      I have just come back from the vet cardiologist and could not believe my ears or eyes – my cat Brynner does not have heart disease – in fact, there is nothing wrong with his heart either inside or out. It is the correct size and his blood pressure is perfect.

      My usual vet thought that his heart was larger than normal but the cardiologist said that the size is perfect for the size of the cat – he is a big cat.

      There has been some sort of change in his lungs which my ordinary vet thought was due to an enlarged heart (which he hasn’t got). The cardiologist feels that he should be treated for lungworm as he had been a stray for some years and/or she feels that the change from roaming outside to then coming into a house with 6 other cats i.e. a change of environment has caused his coughing and quickened breathing. However, the cardiologist did not feel that his respiration rate was abnormal either.

      Now going forward – he hasn’t actually coughed for about 2 weeks. He is on Milbemax worm tablets for the next 4 months. At the end of October, my usual vet is going to check him again. It maybe that the treatment for the lungworm sorts him out or he may have some allergy or asthma going on. However, I am just so pleased to be giving you the good news that his heart is ‘A’ OK.
