I have a cat named Izzy and she is about 10 months old. She has Pectus Excavatum. She has started to have some wheezing after she plays for about 20 – 30 minutes. I don’t have the thousands it would cost to fix her chest and the risk of air getting into her chest cavity scares me. I keep her on a steady diet so she doesn’t gain too much weight and cause more issues breathing. She’s never has an upper respiratory infection, no fluid coming out of her nose, fever, nothing. She gets tired very easily.
Her heart has been pushed to one side of her rib cage due to this condition. Is there any way I can help her without spending an arm and a leg?
As you can see in the photo, she sits very scrunched up due to the way her ribs are shaped.
Thanks in advance.
