RE: 10 years old Ginger been dianose with HCM
- Hi Lee and Miss May, Thanks for the advice! I got Ginger's medication today and they actually use Benazepril instead of Enalapril. I am glad that the vet is actually considered that in advance.
Hope May will do better and better each day.

Not sure if this has been said, but from what I've learned, enalapril (and ace inhibitor) is cleared more by the kidneys than benazepril (ace inhibitor as well).Â My May has crf and hcm and instead of enalapril, we put her on benazepril, and though she had advanced kidney disease, her kidneys did not decline from the benazepril.
So, my advice would be to switch to benazepril instead of enalapril if and when possible.

1 night crying me and my husband decided even there is no hope for
cure, we still want to buy some quality time with Ginger. We called the
vet next day to organise medicine in liquid form (Ginger is a very
grumpy cat and don't want to stress him up with tablet). It will takes 4
days for the medicine arrive (I am in Australia, everything is too slow
here), confirmed with the vet it will contains Latsix and Enalapril.
