Ended up at the vet who did an xray. He had something in his lungs presumably pneumonia. Bad news i they noticed his heart enlarged. Either heartworm or heart disease. They recommended going back in 2 wks for a new xray and if the heart is still enlarged doing a heartworm test. Then if that's ok a ekg test. Since he was exposed to feline leukemia I will be retesting him for that. (I tested him 6 mo after exposure but to be safe will do again. He did have feleuk vx but that's never 100%) This was way too much info than I wanted to hear. I never gave my cats heartworm medication because it is so rare in cats and now I might have killed him. 2 weeks is a long time to wait, I might just test him before that...
