      Hello! I am new here. My cat Maisy was diagnosed with HCM about two weeks ago. The specialist put her on Furosimide, Plavix, and Diltiazem after her EKG and sonogram. After her 10 day check up her heart wasn't responding as well as he liked, so he wants us to add atenolol. The instructions on the label are to "Give one quarter tablet once a day unless it makes her worse then stop".

      I'm a little worried about starting her on the atenolol. Her HCM is advanced but she is asymptomatic. I don't want to make her worse. Plus the specialist is located 200 miles from where I am living so if she did have something seriously go wrong its not like I can take her in really quickly. Lastly, we are making the move from Texas to Virginia in 1 week and I'd hate for something to happen while we are on the road.

      I'm wondering if anyone has used ALL four of these medications at once and if so how did it work out?

      Any advice?
