OBJECTIVE To compare morphometric measurements and serum insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) concentration in cats with and without hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), and assess the hypothesis that cats with HCM have larger body size and skeletal features and higher serum IGF-1 concentrations than healthy cats. ANIMALS 25 cats with HCM and 22 healthy control cats. PROCEDURES Physical examination and echocardiography were performed to classify cats into the HCM and control groups. Data… CONTINUE READING
