Feline Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
Cardiomyopathy is a term that means disease of the heart muscle. The most common heart disease found in all types of cats is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Many cats live normal lives with HCM, but others will suffer devastating consequences, even death. Support research on this important disease by donating to the Ricky Fund.
