My HCM kitty, Jesse (who has allegedly progressed to RCM), has
:::occasional::: vomiting (not regurgitating) episodes, and I've been trying to track
down any references to ondansetron being contraindicated for HCM cats.
Currently, he is on vet-prescribed Pepcid (2.5mg once a day) in addition to
enalapril (2.5mg daily) and aspirin (20mg twice a week). The Pepcid is, of
course, really not all that effective against the vomiting of partially
digested food, and I'm considering switching to ondansetron, which I've been
using on another of my cats (non-cardio) for quite some time without any
apparent adverse side effects.
I have heard, mostly by anecdotal inferences, that there may be some issue
in giving ondansetron to heart kitties.
Do you (or anyone) have any additional information and/or specific
references I can check out in this regard before I talk to Jesse's cardiologist
about the possibility of putting him on ondansetron?
Thanking you in advance.....
