Gallifrey goes to VSS and sees Dr. Marshall.
Gallifrey is on four medications: a pump enhancer (pimobendan), a diuretic (furosemide), a blood pressure (benazepril), and a blood thinner (clopidogrel). There is no surgery in cats to fix. He has had four ultrasounds/echo-cardiograms in the past two years and each one shows that his heart is enlarged, but there is no fluid around his heart and lungs, but continues to show the defect. Gallifrey will continue to need ultrasounds/echo-cardiograms from the cardiac specialist every year to monitor the progress of his heart and lungs and he will need to stay on his medication for the rest of his life. This is in addition to his regular yearly vet visits.
Gallfrey acts like any other kitty. He is a happy and loving kitty that loves to run and play, under supervision, and run and play and run and play. Did I mention he loves to run and play? He loves his cat buddies and knows that dogs can be friends. He absolutely ADORES kittens! Gallifrey enjoys his toys, too. He loves to sit on the couch with you and watch movies. Gallifrey will steal your pizza and popcorn, too. AND he has the FLUFFIEST tail! He is a non-stop purring and playing machine!!
