Heart Murmur In Cats Grade 2. I have a 9 week old kitten which has been diagnosed with a heart murmur (grade 2). When the first vet heard flowerbelle's heart murmur, she said it's got to be a grade two, because she can't hear grade one.
Hi, i rescued a 5 month old kitten a couple of weeks ago, and when i took her to get spayed the vet discovered she had a grade 5 heart murmur (and didn´t spay her). It concerns me that your vet told you to call the breeder and to schedule an scan with a cardiologist from just hearing a murmur on a 4 month old kitten. Not all heart murmurs are the same, and the vet will grade the murmur’s intensity on a scale of one to six.
Grade 4 is also heard right after the examination begins and is combined with a heavy vibration.;
Because for a grade two in a young cat, my understanding is the vet would just want you to bring kitty back after a month or so, to see if the level of the murmur has changed at all. Stan has a small murmur and you wouldn't even know it. Mild, moderate or severe, and whether or not it is resulting in heart enlargement. When the first vet heard flowerbelle's heart murmur, she said it's got to be a grade two, because she can't hear grade one.
