Re: Question on atenolol & enalapril
- Hi Sue :-)
I crush Teegan's Enalapril and Lasix up with a mortar and pestal into a fine powder and
then mix that into a small dolup of Fancy Feast Fish n Shrimp in his bowl (I also squeeze
out a bit of the fish oils so it's not too dry), along with his regular Wellness food. He always
goes for the Fancy Feast first and gobbles up his meds easily as they are pretty well
disloved in the FF, then he eats his Wellness.
I don't think they should be taking the meds on an empty stomach. Teegan hasn't had any
problems with an upset tummy with the meds so far (going on three months now). I myself
take Atenolol and the drug blurb says to take it with food. Thankfully, Lasix, Enalapril and
Atenolol have no taste. I'd never get them down Teegan otherwise!
