never had any problem with pimobendan, and my cat 3.5 years old takes it since being 3 months old. She has VSD, tricospide and pulmonary artery hypertension.

Subject: [FH] Pimobendan
I am new to this group.
My cat Kaiser, 16 and 5 month has been diagnosed with CRD about two years ago.
I gave him subQ fluids which helped a lot but lately he got mild cardiomyopathie and mild pericardial effusion, due to the treatment with Luis, I guess.
The cardiologist prescribed pimobendan, at about 0.17/kg 2x daily
I was very reluctant to give it to him because of possible side effects and sudden death I had read about, but after one month of trying homeopathic medications I decided to give him pimobendan .
He's heart works better, but he is sleeping ALL day!
He eats, purrs, and sleeps.
Has anybody experienced similar behavior?
Does it get better with the time?
I don't know if to continue or stop the medication..
Thanks for your help,
Daniela & Kaiser
