An OVC study is investigating the effect that the diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in a cat has on their owner. This research will raise awareness of the importance of reliably diagnosing cardiac disease in a cat and improve the support offered to owners. This survey is open to individuals who are 18 years of age or older and have a cat with HCM.
