Appetite and beta blockers
- Hi everyone,
I have an appointment with the vet tomorrow for Pebbles' check up.
Pebbles has hyperthyroidism and kidney disease as well as heart problems
caused by the hyperthyroidism.
This past week or so (we started the beta blockers two weeks ago and
increased the dose after the first week), it seems as if Pebbles is not
howling for food all the time. Is this good? She is not on Tapazole yet for
her thyroid. Or may she be feeling a bit off colour? Any thoughts on beta
blockers and appetite, particularly in cats with hyperthyroidism. I am
scared that maybe there is a negative effect going on with the kidneys from
the beta blockers. We check her kidneys via blood test tomorrow, as well as
T4 (thyroid test).
Love, Voula and Pebbles and Lucy and my Beautiful Angel Sachie.
