Re: [FH] Update on coworker's kitty
- In doing research for my kitty I had a conversation today with my vet
just after she had a cardio consult with a cardiovet at Cornell. I had
asked about the drug "Rutin" as it had been suggested it might help my
kitty's ascites (fluid in the abdomen)...the Cardiovet from Cornell
said no, that Rutin IS good for chylothorax.
Perhaps you can ask your vits about it.
Good luck to you and your friend!
