As you know, Teddy is the man of the house now.
On his annual exam earlier this month the vet found a heart murmur.
Further testing shows that Teddy has HCM - hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
HCM causes the heart muscle to thicken making moving the blood more difficult.
It is the most common heart disease found in cats - especially in middle aged male cats -
just like Teddy.
There is no cure for HCM.
It can be treated - in Teddy's case with a beta blocker.
Hopefully, Teddy will be with me and the girls several more years.
He will be checked by his vet every 3 months.
He Conquered all the hearts in this house.
Let this be a reminder.
Be sure you take your pet to the vet annually,
and, as they get older consider visits every 6 months.
Teddy and I wish YOU well and much joy!
