You’ve heard about Large Marge? How about Large LARS?! Lars Ulrich is a BIG, sweet, Maine Coon cat with a sweet heart that has a bit of a problem. There’s a slight murmur in his big ol’ ticker, and we want to take a look with an echocardiogram. This technology uses sound waves to create pictures of the heart’s chambers, valves, walls and the blood vessels (aorta, arteries, veins) attached to the heart. This way we can best know how to treat Lars going forward.
It’s rare that we get a pure bred beauty like Lars, but there’s a lot more to him than just looking good. We want to make sure that he has the best chance at a long, happy life. He’s more than just a handsome face, he’s got a lot of heart!
