      Hi

      I think you mean enalapril? It's an ACE inhibitor. Harpsie's been on it for
      two years and it has greatly improved his heart condition. You need to check
      kidney values a week or two after starting it because it can cause these
      values to rise in a few cats, though Harpsie's kidney values are fine and
      always have been. I have nothing but good things to say about this drug.

      HTH
