      Hi Everyone,

      I'm off to pick up Chloe's Vetmedin from the vet's - we'll start it on Monday (I never start a new med on Friday if I can avoid it - vet always agrees - don't want to risk having side effects necessitating an ER visit over a weekend - YIKES!)

      A few questions...

      I've read Vetmedin isn't usually given for HCM, so I'd appreciate any input regarding kitties with HCM taking Vetmedin. My vet and the consulting internal med. specialist say for Chloe's current condition it's the best drug to add to her regimen - Chloe's weakening heart is a big concern...

      Vet said I can combined the Vetmedin with any of her current heart drugs (lasix, enalapril, "spiro") and give it with or without food. I know I've read here on the Forum that Vetmedin is generally NOT given with food - again, any advice would really be appreciated.

      I'd love to be able to combine the Vetmedin with Chloe's other drugs as I'm running out of hours in the day...

      Sending out purrs and prayers to all the kitties,
      Suzanne and Chloe =^-.-^=

        Hi

        Vetmedin has been a wonder drug for two of my cats, one with HCM and one
        with a structural defect. I give it with all the other pills. Mine love the
        taste and just eat it as a treat.

        :) Lyn
