- Thanks for the post, Melinda! I'm amazed that anyone else has had this in a
kitty. "Yodeling" is a good description, except that it sounds more like a
small child in the middle of an exorcism, or else being disemboweled by a
Pepcid, eh? I'll have to ask my vet about it.
Funny you should mention dental work. Ollie is the only one of my cats
who's ever had dental work done. That was 8 years ago. The vet doesn't
want to put him under at his age, and with HCM, to do a dental. But boy,
that sure does sound reasonable.
I'm going to fax your message over to him, see what he says.
Thanks a million!
