Q. The vet said my pom has conchestive heart failor heis on Lasix and predison si there any thing besides prdison he can take?
A. Enalapril is an ACE inhibitor commonly used to treat CHF. It lowers blood pressure and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. Vetmedin (pimobendan) is another drug used to manage CHF by helping the heart pump more efficiently. Either medication can be prescribed by your veterinarian. An echocardiogram is strongly recommended if one has not been performed. A consult with a veterinary cardiologist is also recommended.
