Re: New Member - Restrictive Cardiomyopathy
- Hi Brooke
We've all been through that, where they have to tweak the medications and
add more until they get the balance right. If she crashed so quickly, she
may need to add another medication to help the heart and it is good the
diuretic is every eight hours. That should help.
My heart cat Trixi, had a heart attack several years ago and was given no
chance to survive and was given vetmedin (pimobendan) as a trial. It took
over a week for her to start to feel better, but during that time we had to
drop the dose of benazepril as her blood pressure dropped too low and we had
to stop aspirin as it made her sick and also increase the lasix. You did
well to spot the change in breathing and get quick action.
