HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) is a common heart disease in purebred cats, carrying potential risks to their health and longevity.Despite our thorough breeder selection process, it’s impossible to completely eliminate this risk. Heart ultrasounds for the kitten's parents may not provide complete assurance against this disease. To guard against potential risks, consider opting for a DNA Gene test specifically for HCM, an additional level of protection our company offers when purchasing the kitten from the breeder. Secure peace of mind by ordering this test now. Please note that test results may take 2-3 weeks to arrive and could potentially impact your adoption timeline.
