Last week my mom noticed my breathing was a little rough. She thought it might be allergies or I was getting a cold. The next day it was a little worse so mom called for a vet appointment that afternoon. She thought she was over reacting. When she got home, I was much worse! My sides were working hard to push air and even my little pink nose was opening hard to suck air in. Mom was happy she had called for sure. We got to the vet, and he said my heart sounded fine, no temp and he didn't feel any lumps. Whew! He took xrays and all we saw were bones and fluid. He took me in the back and tapped my chest with needles and got a cup of fluid out of me.That's a lot guys. I got a shot of lasix and mom took me home.I lost a lot more fluid that night in the litter box..let me tell you heeheee. The lab said I have lymph in my fluid. That is called Chylothorax. There were no cancer cells.
But why do I have this fluid?? There are 3 regular diagnosis. The best one is congestive heart failure. So we are going with that for now cuz I am an optimistic cat :) I am on lasix at home now and will go in for more xrays and a check up Tuesday. So far, I feel great now!! So please purr that the lasix is all I need and the vet doesn't find anything else wrong in me.
Thanks dear furiends.
