      I know my Chief is only 1 and had a heart murmur of 4/6 grade, that was in Feburary, we went back in June to have another ultrasound done and his murmur was gone and his heart improved. The specialist said he will never have a healed heart it will never be normal like it should but we can try and get it as close as we can. He doesn't go back until Dec. for another ultrasound, but I take him to our vet for checkup on his heart rate and blood pressure. Skippy my 17 year old cat had a murmur off and on but nothing life threatening, he died from kidney disease too.

      There are different grades of heart murmers I have 3
      cats with heart murmers now and they are doing very
      well on meds.My Angel Fred lived until 17 years old
      with a heart murmer and he died of kidney failure.In
      some cases heart murmers can improve.

        Kara, this is going to be a LONG, LONG night for you, I know, especially as you don't know what's going on, and they don't seem to know. I never had to endure a separation at a such a time.
        Do you have to go to work tomorrow? Hope you can stay home.. with a recovering Bella..  She knows you would not abandon her at the vet's... but it must be a scary night for her!

        As for the thyroid med, the increase is small, but without knowing the strength of the methimazole (how many mg per ml), it is just very relative.  But it is a reasonable amount.
        It would really give me pause as all this happened at the same time.
        But also.. she has been under much stress..
        Sending you and Bella my very, very best
        Anne-Marie
