OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of cardiomyopathy and the relationship between cardiomyopathy and heart murmurs in apparently healthy cats. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. ANIMALS 103 privately owned, apparently healthy domestic cats. PROCEDURES Cats were physically and echocardiographically examined by 2 investigators independently. Left ventricular wall thickness was determined via 2-dimensional echocardiography in short-axis and long-axis planes. Left ventricular hypertrophy was… Expand
