In my experience, most saddle thrombosis are heart related so I'm glad you are seeing a cardiac consult. I would research Nattokinase and see if/where it's available in the UK. It will eat clots and keep new...

  • Hi Debra, Were you able to get TJ in for more testing yesterday? Any results yet? Here's my 2 cents on some of your questions: --- In feline-heart@^$1, "airumel" wrote: Has anyone had luck using herbs (dandelion, etc) instead of Lasix? I had much luck using dandelion WITH lasix with Mr Pepe. His HCM was too advanced to be able to drop the lasix completely. But I was able to reduce...

  • Hi Judi, The rabies vax is well documented being the most dangerous one out there. It's also required by law. International travel is very difficult unless they will accept titers and waivers. You might need to make the agonizing decision of risking his life by giving him the unnecessary shot or rehoming him while you are gone for 6 mos a year. Sorry, it's the reality of the...

  • Hi Anne, I don't know if I've seen anything published in the type of scientific journal that would make a vet or vaccine mfr stand up and take notice. I have seen several holistic vets indicate that the panluek poke will cause heart damage in a susceptable cat. Don Hamilton comes to mind discussing the connection between vaccines and HCM. I know I've seen other vets refer to it...

  • Welcome Jessica and Moses, Here is my 2 cents on a few of your questions.... Yes, it's common protocol. Home monitoring of heart rate and respirations is very important as it can be the 1st sign that fecal matter is about to hit the fan. Get used to what Moses heart rate, breathing and body language looks like when he is doing well. Etch this into your grey matter. So you can...

  • Hi Cheri, What you are seeing is a very common side effect of vaccines. Is it "normal"? According to many vets, yes, since it happens so often. In reality, it's the bodies way of telling you this stuff is bad for me. If my cat, I'd force the vet to fill out an adverse reaction report and file with the appropriate agency. Then I would have him/her write "no more vaccines" in big...

Many vets will poo poo this, and insist on continuing to vaccinate a HCM kitty. Which can speed up the progression of HCM in addition to breaking down other parts of the body. Deena

  • Hi Mike, It might depend on the cat. I had better luck controlling Mr Pepe's fluid when I gave lasix 3x a day. What greatly helped him was when I started using dandelion in addition to lasix. You need to use either a whole-plant product or one that contains the leaf. Dandelion root is not a strong enough diuretic. I feel dandelion goes a long way to support and reduce the kidney...

  • Hi Carol, A few questions and comments: --- In feline-heart@^$1, "Carol" wrote: > Dandelion root/leaf is a potassium sparing diuretic, but it won't increase the potassium in the system. You'd still need a potassium supplement, maybe just not as much. Why wouldn't dandelion increase potassium if the cat is deficient? Isn't it high in potassium? In a form developed by mom nature. So...

  • --- In feline-heart@^$1, nala nala wrote: I agree with Carol that you might consider other potassium supplements than tumil K especially if $ is a concern. Dandelion is loaded with potassium. The leaf is a wonderful diuretic. Root is a great filter organ detoxifier. Is FREE in many climates. Or pretty cheap if you need to buy it dried at a HFS. Just be careful if you dig your own...
