      I am so glad that you thought of this! I too remember something about
      they were going to PTS Ollie and stopped the drugs and he popped out
      of it. I hope if she reads this that she lets us know.

      The cardiologist explained that it builds up in the cats system and
      the body metabolizes so much but then we give more and it just rises
      the level and it never drops just keeps getting higher. Or the bottle
      of drugs could just have been too strong which is what he suspects
      since the problems and the new prescriptions all came about at the
      same time. We will never know for sure. But, they said when starting
      heart meds again, we will do it slowly. And I didn't ask, but he was
      on Diltizem and Enalapril and we had discuused here why he was
      getting both of them. Seems like alot of drugs but the cardiologist
      thought both would work together but.. now I wonder?? Dom is a 15
      pound cat but it is alot of potent drugs.

      He is still ok and doing well today but is now on asthma meds for the
      weekend. They will decide next move on Monday.
