- Nov 8, 2002Bob is 8yrs old & had CHF 6/30/02 & diagnosed with HCM. He is doing
well now & is on Atenolol, Cardizem, Furosemide, Potassium,
Theophylline, Feline Cardiac Support & CoQ10. He gets 1/4 tab low dose
(81mg) safety coated aspirin every 3 days. Bob weighs 9 1/2 lbs.
Uncoated aspirin can cause gastric distress. A full tab of aspirin does
seem high, but maybe others in this group will report. Good luck to you
Lots of Kitty Kisses,

Subject: [FH] Hello all... cat just diagnosed...
Penelope (age around 5) was recently diagnosed with congestive heart
failure & HCM. She's doing OK at the moment, is on Furosemide and
Enalapril, and will be going on baby aspirin and Atenolol today.
Is there anything I need to know with these latter two? The vet
prescribed 81MG baby aspirin every 72 hours, but I don't want to risk
giving that high a dose (she weighs about 9.5 pounds). Also, is
there any additional risk of breathing difficulties with Atenolol,
given lung congestion?
Thanks for any help and suggestions, they're tremendously appreciated.
