I just took my 7 year old cat to the vet because she has been acting funny and not wanting to move around or do anything. She tired to stand up this morning and meowed and acted like her hing legs were hurting her so I took her to the vet. She weighs 22 pounds and has always been overweight even though I limit her food. Her temp was normal but her ears were very cold. The doctor said her heart sounded abnomal and suggested cardiomyopathy but said he couldnt diagnose without bloodwork, xrays, etc. which would cost several hundred dollars. I don't want to spend the money to diagnose her if there is no way to treat the condition which he said there isnt much you can do and she will probably just fall down dead one day. Has anyone dealt with this before or have any advice at all???? Thanks!!!
