so kind of a genetics issue. Our cat probably has HCM. Sucks.
Sucks even more, because we want kittens. not necessarily to breed and sell or whatever, we just want some kittens from our own cat.
Had some talk with the vet and he said HCM is probably recessive (dunno about that, he said that if it was dominant it would whipe out all cats... I don't really know if he knows his genetics that well).
so does anyone know something about the genetics of HCM? I don't know if its one or more alleles, so if you can say easily if your cat is homo-zygotic dominant or anything.
we thought that if our cat does have HCM, we could make the male cat be homozygote dominant for no HCM (assuming HCM is dominant cuz vet said it, but don't know if he was right).
also maybe general HCM thread. anyone wants to share their experiences with it, be my guest.
