- Mar 5, 2007Margie, the traveling cardiologist sounds great. If
you make an appointment with one at another facility
there is a good chance you would have to leave Frisky
for several hours. I know when I took Albert and
Pequita in we had to leave them at 9 am and couldn't
pick them up until 4 pm.
Old is relative. If Frisky is happy then my vote is
to treat him for whatever ails him. Did the vet give
you a copy of his blood work. Vets often prescribe
Mylanta as a phosphate binder. If so you might want
to check into buying Dried Aluminum Hydroxide. It
works better and can be mixed with Frisky's food.
The recommended dosage of regular strength Pepcid AC
is 1/4 pill EOD on the CRF board. To much Pepcid can
cause an upset tummy. Also Pepcid is processed
through the kidneys and too much can cause problems
Did your vet talk about lasix to help eliminate the
fluids in his legs? That would be something to talk
to the cardiologist about.
