The best thing you can do for your cat, before you even see a specialist, is
to immediately get some CoQ10, GNC Vegetarian type (it comes in powder form
in a capsule instead of oil in a gel cap). Get the 100 mg, and mix one half
of it daily into food – tasteless.

I have used it on a cat that has a heart and kidney problem for the past 1 ½
years – she is doing extremely well.  All FIV/FeLV and older cats get it as
well. This does not interfere with FeLV, in fact, helps.

Any really good doctor should recommend CoQ10 for any heart problem, as well
as gum and tooth diseases.

For blood in stool – has it been analyzed?  If it’s fresh blood, something
is the matter at the very end or it could be a case of just a very irritated
bowel.  How about trying to put some probiotics or acidophilus in to food
and see what happens?

Beth is right, there is a great Yahoo group for cats with heart murmurs.
The url is
You really do need to have an echo done by a feline cardiologist.  They can
usually be found at the ag college in your state.
Now, as far as the heart meds interacting with the leukemia meds, I don't
know - you might have to have both vets talk.

Anyway, that group was immensely helpful to me when my MIssy was diagnosed
with a heart murmur.

Good luck,

Kelley and Missy

Heart murmurs can get worse with time. They might not require meds at first
but may later. Usually they have you go for an echocardiogram. My cat was on
5 pills per day. I believe there is a Yahoo group for cats with this
condition. They may be more helpful than this list.

re:  need for med.  Different vet listened to in spring 2011.  Nothing was
said re:  murmur.  Now same vet hears and wants to put on meds; wants
work-up.  In what circumstances would you put on meds?
>Meaow is cat abandoned at TS which had abscess under jaw in October.  had
treated; then neutered about 2 weeks later.  now has intermittent fresh
blood in stool.  stools are small & dark.  no problems before.  vet found no
coccidia or worms in stool sample.  again vet wants to put on meds.   feed
canned food.  he wants to own me but keep caged in bedroom because SPCA
accepted him for their waiting list.  fe leukemia cats are in main part of
small apartment.   comments?  he is negative; has been vaccinated.  a
fighter & biter who is also very sweet.
