Heart Murmurs in Cats



Unless heart failure is evident, your cat will be treated as an outpatient. The course of treatment will be determined based on the associated clinical signs. Kittens with low grade murmurs, for example, may require little or no treatment and the murmur may resolve itself within six months. Routine diagnostic imaging is recommended for cats with murmurs.
