I am new here
In joining, I see some familiar faces, and on the advice of my dear
friend Voula, I am joining.
I hope you don't mind a short post, I am so exhausted I almost forgot
to feed my dog.
I have four cats, I treat them all holistically and 3 of them are
over age 17, all three have crf. Cakie has pancreatitis on top of it
so I have quite a time of it.
Saturday I had to rush little Jerkie to the vet as he was coughing
and had trouble breathing. They took a chest x-ray and his heart is
quite enlarged, only a bit of fluid on the lungs. They sent me home
with lasix and enacard 2.5 mg to be taken at 1/2 tablet a day. The
lasix helped stop his "bellows" breathing and coughing and he seems
Unfortunately I have had to ask IMOM organization for help getting an
ultrasound as many people have urged me to get a cardio vet and an
ultrasound to get a definitive diagnosis. This is scarey, juggling
I am just wondering what are the side effects of enacard and what
should I expect from the ultrasound visit?
I will post the prognosis when I get it but I really want to treat
this with as much alternative measures as possible as he has kidney
disease but I of course am going to do the best for HIM.
As a side note, has anyone used Standard Process Cardio plus? I am
using Renatrophin PMG with excellent results for his kidneys.
Thanks so much for help!
