One thing I remember reading about Atenolol is that it can affect
potassium levels. It can cause levels to go up, so it can help
balance one of the bad effects of Lasix.
Some cats develop kidney problems with Atenolol, so BUN and crea are
checked after about a week on it.
Widget did very well on Atenolol, kidney numbers were o.k. and no
side effects that I could see.
