Are string of hearts toxic to cats?

Our cat had a serious heart condition (tachycardia) that was detected by his cardiologist when he was 6 months old.

This is what the cardiologist sd:

"He has had one episode of fnting, which could be caused by his heart condition. When he is healthy, he can run very fast, jump a lot, and play with the catnip toys, so it's pretty hard to tell when he is sick. His heart is too fast, which can be dangerous, so I recommend you get a check up at the vet's office every few months."

I was so relieved, but I had no idea what to do about this problem. We didn't want to give him a heart med. because of the "fnting" thing, and didn't know what else to do.

So for 6 months, my husband bought him treats every day (kitten chow) to try to make his heart settle down. This is how the problem started. He would have one treat, be fine for a week, and then have another one (treat). It went on like this for months. I thought he was fine, until the treat stopped being any good. After a couple months of this, he started having a lot of stomach trouble, and lost weight.

Then a couple months later, we took him to the vet, because he had been throwing up once a day for a month.

His doctor sd the same thing as the cardiologist sd. He sd his heart is beating too fast, and is very weak.

She sd we can try to slow it down by feeding him less food, but that he needs to be on the heart med. (I did read on the cardiologist's note that he was to be on a heart med. and take 1/4 of a 1/4 grn per pound of his weight.

I thought this was too much of a hassle for a treat, but it's what we were left with.

After he started having stomach trouble, we went back to the cardiologist, to see what he could do. He sd it's unlikely he could slow his heart down, but he is going to look into it.

My question is, is it possible to slow down his heart enough with the string of hearts treats, that he wouldn't need to take the heart med? I have been reading that cats have a different form of heart tissue that makes their heart faster, so I was wondering if that might be why he is so susceptible to heart issues?

The best thing to do is get the doctor's advice. They can tell you if this is a good idea, or if it's not.

I agree that we need the vet's advice. She sd it's unlikely he could slow his heart down, but I'm still a little concerned because this is a heart medication, and we're talking about a dog. If he does need to take this heart medication, will it cause side effects? He will also be on a heart medication and thyroid med., if he needs them.

My vet will be out of town for the next week, so I will let you know what the doctor says.

I agree. I think the first thing to do is get your vet's opinion. The vet can tell you if it's a good idea or not.

Thanks for all the responses. My vet is out of town and I was hoping for some insight on this from people who have had a similar problem. We have been trying to find a vet who has had experience with this sort of thing, but it's hard to get a cardiologist to prescribe these treats (we have tried, but they won't).

I don't know why you can't get a cardiologist to give a string of hearts, but they have no idea how to help your cat. A cat's heart is very different than a human heart. It will beat too fast or too slow, just like a dog's, but a human would not need a heart medication at the rate your cat has to beat.
