During the last 3 years, a total of 144 cats underwent echocardiographic screening at two investigational clinics before being admitted for breeding. The number of cats presented for that purpose has constantly increased. 8.3% of cats were diagnosed as having hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and 6.9% were diagnosed as suspicious. Male cats were more affected than females (9.4% vs 7.7%). In 4.2 of all presented cats, a congenital cardiac malformation was recognised, most often tricuspid valve dysplasia.
