Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Thank you for the reply. I will treat the gastrointestinal issues with probiotics, fiber and diagel. That sounds good. She's been eating the same food (Iams) for years too, so there was no change there to trigger anything. Hopefully it is the stress of the move.
I still have the general question though regarding the enalapril. Since I've had two vets have two strongly opposite oppinions regarding the use of enalapril for heart murmur in a cat, I would like a third opinion. She's been on it for years, and she vomits somewhat regularly (not including this current gastrointestinal episode), about once a month and her bowel movements smell worse than any BM I have ever encountered from a cat (even when it's not diarrhea). In your opinion, in a cat with a murmur level 2-3, do you think the enalapril is helpful? She seems so much happier and more active when I skip a dose or two. I don't mind continuing the medication, I'm just not sure if it actually helps or not. What do you think? Thanks!
