- Feb 20, 2013Hi Lee,
Fuzz did this when he was hospitalized upon his HCM diagnosis. The Dr told me the techs saw him faint twice, but both times before the Dr was able to get there, he was out of it. I haven't seen him do it at home since he was put on meds.

May has mild chf, and fairly advanced crf. She's on 4.1mg atenolol 2x/dy. Monday night had a fainting spell, suddenly sat up from dozing on my chest, eyes rolled back in her head, she fell over sideways. Ate alot before and soon after.
Last night it happened 6-7 times more head wobbling, and some eating. We went to emergency where they found nothing, bp 116.
Has anyone had side effects in their cats from atenolol? May weights 4.5kg <10lbs.
It's a bit pre mature to ask here, as it could be a thyroid issue, or many other things. We'll get blood results tonight and have requested our vet to get the echo dr. to come to echo her. SO more info is on it's way. But I am just wondering about atenolol.
