My two cats were both recently diagnosed with stage 1 murmurs, what would be the next step? They were taken to the vet for dental exams. My female cat is unsteady and losing her balance, blood work (Antech basic wellness) we were told was fine. Should we do blood work for hyperthyroidism?View Thread
Thank you for the reply, thyroid test was included and both cats were fine, well within range. Female had her teeth cleaned, murmur was not mentioned until follow up after cleaning. She is not well after surgery, symptoms include stumbling, head tilt, shaking head weak legs! I think she has idiopathic vestibular disease. This has happened over 2-3 week period of time after surgery. Going to new vet in am.View Thread
Thanks for the reply, heart murmur is on watch right now, unstable cat, I think, has idiopathic vestibular disease. Going to a new vet tomorrow. My babies are 11 yrs old. Previous vet does not have my confidence.View Thread
