RE: [FH] Teddy's appt. w/ new Cardiologist
- Thanks to you all for your helpful thoughts. I've decided that it will be
best for us to see the doctor again in 3 months. He mentioned that I should
call him if Teddy seemed sleepy on the Atenolol. He does seem a bit dopey.
Is this normal? Maybe I should go ahead and call the vet in a day or so to
see if there is an adjustment period to the new meds. At least one of our
cats -Cody is getting some rest from Teddy chasing him around all the time.

3 months is pretty standard for beginning check-up with heart treatments. i
wouldn't recommend any more than that. be prepared for a potentially
expensive and emotionally rough time with your pet. having a family member
with a chronic health problem is tough.

just an update on Teddy. We saw Dr. Lesser today, our new
Cardiologist. He examined Teddy and did an ultrasound. He disagreed
with Dr. Ettinger's prognosis, and said that his heart murmur is not
nearly as bad as what Dr. Ettinger stated. He started him on
Atenolol as well and wants to see him back in 3 months.
Anyone have thoughts on this 3 month re-visit? It cost us over
$400.00 today. If we prolonged the appointment to 4-6 months out if
he's not experience any problems on the new meds, would that be
Any opinions would be appreciated.
