Adopt Pirelli a Domestic Shorthair / Mixed (short coat) cat in North Fort Myers
North Fort Myers, FL
Pirelli gets along with everyone (people, cat and dogs). He loves kittens He like to play on the patio as well as inside the house. He is affectionate and playful.Pirelli has a ventricular septal defect (VSD). VSD is a relatively common congenital heart defect. The abnormality consists of incomplete formation of the septum separating the lower heart chambers (ventricles). The defect in the septum forces the lungs and heart to work harder.VSD does increase the risk of endocarditis (infection of the aortic valve), therefore, prophylactic antibiotics are recommended during times of increased risk of bacteremia (foot pad lacerations, dental cleanings, skin infections, surgery, etc.) If lethargy, fever, or enlarged lymph nodes are noted by your veterinarian, immediate recheck with the cardiologist is necessary as endocarditis is life threatening and requires rapid and aggressive treatment.Pirelli is not on any medication at this time.
