My cat Sammy has a heart condition and 2 and a half years ago he threw a clot from his heart down his spine and into both back legs. It's called a Saddle Thrombosis. It is normally a death sentence. My vet is an amazing man and spent all night at the vet office trying to stabalize Sammy and keep him alive. Once he was stable the vet put him on Plavix (which is usually just used on humans with heart issues). In the meantime, I did a lot of research and found that Co Enzyme Q 10 is a miracle supplement for heart conditions. It strengthens the heart and can even reverse damage. My vet warned me that even with the Plavix Sammy probably would throw another clot within 6 months, and that one would most likely be fatal. I began making a "cocktail" of the Co Q 10, vitamin E oil, flaxseed oil, and vitamin paste and mixing in his Plavix. After a year Sammy was still kicking! My vet was surprised. But the Plavix was so expensive it was very hard for us to afford it. So our vet had us switch from the Plavix to 1/4th of a baby asprin every 3 days. BIG difference in the cost! For the past year and a half we've had him on the baby asprin mixed with the vitamin/supplment cocktail and he's still here! My vet is pretty amazed. I printed off info about the Co Q 10 for my vet and after reading it he said he was so impressed with the research that HE wanted to start taking it for himself! I highly recommend it. It is REALLY rare for a cat who has had a saddle thrombosis to live beyond a year after the first one (in most instances they don't survive the first one). I recommend anyone with a cat who has a heart condition to get them on Co Q 10 right away. It seems to be a miracle drug. Good luck with your fur baby!
