Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy HCM

HCM is a thickening of the walls of the heart, which can lead to death. Also other cats than the Bengal can be affected and it can also be found in humans.

Every serious breeder has his breeding cats periodically checked by ultra sound on HCM and should some first thickening of the walls of the heart be noticed, he takes the animals immediately from his breeding program. We are very pleased that all the HCM tests that we had done at Kleintierspital in Zürich for our breeders every year have been negative.
