14153Re: Morag back at vet with rapid breathing
- Sep 1, 2003Sarah,
I'm very new to this too, so I don't know what to tell you about the
Lasix. Boo Kitty takes 1 12.5mg Lasix daily, I also had to give her
an additional 1 about a week ago when she had an episode of heavy
breathing. I suppose that Boo Kitty and I are going to learn more
about her condition and the best treatment when we go see the
cardiologist on 9/9. I can't remember, has Morag been to a cardio?
Do you know what type of heart disease she has? From what I've been
reading, the treatments can vary significantly depending on the type
of disease we are treating. Please let me know how things go
