Re: [FH] Chloe - X-ray Not Good - More Lasix/Vetmedin
- Hi Laurie,
Yes, there is a reason behind the wild schedule...Chloe's vet added a third dose of Lasix to the mix this past Thursday - so in an attempt to group as many meds together, I came up with this idea:
Lasix is now given every 8 hours
Enalapril/Spiro is given every 12 hours
Lasix 8:00AM, 4:00PM, 12:00AM
If I give the Lasix alone at 8:00AM, the last dose can be combined with the Enal./Spiro at midnight. It also enables me to give Chloe her "breakfast" before the Enal./Spiro as the vet said these drugs are better tolerated with food...Prior to this, Chloe received all three heart meds all at once (ahh, the simple life!) :).
I do work at home, but it all gets crazy when I have to go out on appointments/errands or am preparing/serving dinner. I am convinced one day I'll sit down to dinner to find Chloe eating a plate of spaghetti and me eating a Fancy Feast milkshake! :)
I'm keeping my fingers crossed the Vetmedin can be combined with the other heart meds - I don't know how I could possibly fit anything else into the day...
Any ideas or suggestions for an easier schedule would be greatly appreciated!
Exhausted Suzanne and Chloe

> Wow that is some schedule! Boo gets all her meds together - plavix, lasix, benazepril and vetmedin. Is there a reason you are giving her the enalpril and spiro at a different time than the lasix?
