heart disease

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi- I'm writing about my cat oreo. I take him to the vet routinely, every 6 months to a year. This past check up a couple weeks ago the vet noticed a heart murmur. It wasnt there before, so she ordered a echocardiogram. Turns out he has some heart disease, mild she said. But supposedly its congential. When oreo was a year old, we got a letter from the shelter saying that one of oreo's littermates had died of a heart related issue. I thought we were in the clear after 4 years went by and there were no issues. So I'm nervous, especially since the vet wants a repeat echo every 6 months to monitor for changes (this one was $250). I guess the repeats are cheaper, but still!
anyways, I'm nervous, but I'm glad my kitty is generally ok and was nice to the vet.

My Persian was diagnosed with heart disease at 1.5 yrs old. He passed away this year at 11 yrs old. It is possible to live many years with heart disease.
