Q. What is the monthly cost of Enalapril for a 19lbs miniature Schnauzer with grade 3 systolic murmur... Possible CHF? He is 14 w/ lethargy.

Answered By
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS

A. Approximately 15$ per month if you buy it online. But it can vary according to the exact dose he needs. He might also need other medications like lasix and vetmedin, the first is quiet cheap but the second quiet expensive.

A. Enalapril is not too expensive. Prices will vary based on location and supplier. Do not give any medications to your pet without the advice of your veterinarian. Consider a cardiac workup up (bloodwork, chest xrays, EKG, ECG) to assess cardiac architecture and function. Your vet can then prescribe the most appropriate therapies. Ask for a written prescription and shop your local pharmacies and warehouse clubs for the best price.
