Re: [FH] Kitsu had a recheck ultrasound yesterday (CHF, DCM)
- Leah, thanks for the perspective. I know I need to be
more patient, but it's so hard, when all I want is for
Kitsu to be well. I'm hoping that with the fine
tuning of his meds, the next ultrasound will be even
better (it would help me feel better about having to
go out of town for a week, that's for sure!).
Dr. Jones did tell me Pimobendan had been approved for
dogs, but she doesn't think it'll ever be approved for
cats, because she says the market is so small. But
she's had really good success with the cats she's
treating, so I remain hopeful.
Oh and the Pill Pockets - Kitsu loves both the chicken
and salmon flavors! Just about nibbled my fingers off
this morning trying to take them from my hand!
