      Hi --- atenolol is to help prevent problems, not to fix them after they happen. You should start as soon as the cardiologist tells you to. And don't miss a dose. I find the beef-flavored liquid to be the easiest to give, I just put it in Tigger's canned food twice a day. He's been on it over 6 years and is just great. It's a wonderful drug, and I think most of the kitties in our group here are on it. If someone's kitty isn't on it, ask your cardiologist why.

      take care -- Michelle & Tigger Too in Toronto

      Not sure if I asked this already, but I'm thinking of filling the script for atenolol and having it ready just in case.

      Cardiologist prescribed 6.25mg twice a day. How does that dosing sound to folks here?

      I asked vet this morning, before things got a bit worse, and she said wait til she's eating better before atenolol.

      Thank you!

        cardiologist prescribed it but I don't get to talk with him, he travels around and walks in and out but only talks with vets, i'm not even sure he'll consult with me.  i think i have to go through the vet.

        so is it bad to start it now that her resp is up a bit?

        she is 20.5, has advanced crf too.

        thank you michelle
