26391I don't want to be here
- Dec 30, 2006Hi -
I've never joined an online support group before, but then again I've
never had a cat with heart disease before. Luke is a 5 1/2 year old
male who makes me smile. He was just diagnosed with Hypertrophic
Obstructive Cardiomyopathy. I don't know what to do. The thought of
him not being with me is almost more then I can bear.
The cardiologist prescribed 1/4 tablet of a beta blocker called
Atenolol twice a day. Does this usually help? Is there anything else
that can be done? Should I start Luke on a low sodium diet?
What's the typical prognosis? The cardiologist thought Luke would live
another 3 1/2 years.
