---------------------------- Hi Tanya: I am so sorry about your Maggie. My FELV+ kitty was diagnosed with Early HCM years ago but it never really progressed much beyond a certain thickness on one side. He also was diagnosed with a "perfect valentine shaped heart" - misshapen. I used to give him CoQ10 - mixed in his canned food - 10 mg per day for his HCM. I can't say if it did or did not help but it didn't seem to hurt him at all. I stopped giving it to him when he was diagnosed with FELV - no reason really other than I'm giving him so much other stuff right now!
Saying purrayers for your furbaby.

I found out last month that my FelV+ Maggie who turned 2 years old 16 days ago was just diagnosed with a grade 4/6 heart murmur. She has seen many vets in her short life and has not had a detectable one previously not even 7 months ago when she had her bi-annual physical and blood work. I took her in for her physical and because lately she has had some exercise intolerance that isn't normal for a 2 year old. Her heart ultrasound gave us a diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Her walls were very thick and flow greatly reduced. We started he on Enalapril. I was wondering if anyone else has had the same diagnosis and if so if there was anything that worked well for your little ones. Her heart disease is progressing very quickly and I was told that with her type there isn't anything they can do to slow it down, we are only making her more comfortable with the Enalapril by making her heart not have to work as hard. Any advice is appreciated, Tanya (Maggie's Mom) stacy_zac...@yahoo.com _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
