Heart disease and cats
Heart disease is common in senior cats. There are many different types of heart disease.
One of the most commonly seen in cats is cardiomyopathy, a disease of the heart muscle.
Degenerative valvular disease and other types of heart disease can be seen as well. Regardless of the underlying cause, the end result of heart disease is congestive heart failure, or CHF, in which the heart’s ability to pump blood effectively and efficiently is compromised.
