Subject: [FH] Maisy's switch to atenolol
Just posting an update. I had posted weeks back about the trouble I was having giving Maisy her diltiazem and about her vomiting. I tried the liquid with no luck and finally called the vet. She changed it to atenolol. What a difference! She takes it no problem so far. She also seems better. She has only thrown up twice in about 2 weeks since the switch, which is excellent for her. Vet has her on one quarter tablet of atenlol and plavix daily. Have to take her in August and the vet said based on how she's doing that they might have to up it to atenolol twice a day.
I've also been giving her some treats with glucosomine and other vitamins. She seems like she has so much more energy. Not sure if it's the glucosomine or the medication switch.
Hopefully I didn't jinx her easy medication taking by posting this but just wanted to share!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Kat, Maisy, and Mr. Handsome Pants
