According to researchers at the University of California, Davis, Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, many cats who suffered from burns and smoke inhalation during California wildfires in 2017 and 2018 also showed evidence of serious heart issues. Ultrasound examinations of the 51 cats studied showed that more than 50% had heart muscle thickening and nearly 30% had blood clots. Although six of the study cats passed away from their injuries, the majority were saved by UC Davis veterinarians. More research is needed to determine if humans might also show similar cardiac damage after burns and smoke inhalation.

    I am not sure if you can use Tualang Honey for cats but it was used in animals against Heart attacks. The honey comes from Malaysian. It is something that you can look into.
