HCM in Bengals
HCM is a primary disease of the heart muscle and is the most common heart disease of cats, regardless of their breed. It is usually a progressive disease and many affected cats experience heart failure and die, some as early as 1 year of age. HCM is thought to be hereditary and can be exacerbated by hypertension and hyperthyroidism, both of which cause thickening of the ventricle. As with PRA, a lack or taurine is also a contributing factor. Moderate to severe HCM can be diagnosed by an echo-cardiogram, but it will not always detected in mild cases. Try to find a board-certified cardiologist to perform the test for the best results. Quality of life and life span depend on many factors, but early detection will normally allow the best control of the disease. This is why we have chosen lines of cats who have a family history of negative HCM screens and screen our cats as well, to prevent the disease in their lineage.
Screening multiple generations is thought to be the most effective way to keep from inheriting HCM in your cats family lines. There is a DNA test for the Ragdoll breed but not for the Bengals as of now.
