Reply To: Covid myocarditis

Nathalie Cunha

Hi everyone,
In the past 3 weeks we had 2 similar cases. Both times indoor cats, both 1-2 years old, no recent vaccination or anesthesia and both presented with HCM phenotype and left sided CHF. Troponine measured 38 ng/ml in one case and 36 ng/ml in te other case. In both cases we suspect Covid.
One cat stabilized quickly on torasemide, the other cat staid in the clinic for 2 weeks and needed Oxygen at first and a feeding tube since she stopped eating. She is finally doing better now. It is nice for cases like these if we can put some image material on the discussion forum but I don’t think that is possible at this moment?
