Deffinately keep a watchful eye for any other symptoms of
distress. Unfortunately, my 1 and a half year old cat Checkers was
having seizures during heart failure, which he did not survive. It
was believed that the seizures came from possible lack of oxygen to
the brain or blood clots. If you see any rapid breathing or panting,
get him emergency care. If the seizures come on more frequently, I
would deffinately get him to a hospital. I'm glad your vet is doing
a full blood panel too because the seizures may be totally unrelated
to his heart condition. Good luck with all this. Having a young cat
with this disease can be very scarey. Post back and let us know how
his blood work comes up. Take care.
