- Thank you all for your emails and posts regarding my questions of CHF
symptoms. Bearhug is my 17year old cat taking enalapril, proprolonal,
l-carnatine, methimazole, coq10, vitamin supplement, ,lasix, spiro,
and subqs. His appetite has dropped off greatly over the last two

it is getting harder since he is not wanting to eat.
