Hello and thank you for using Just Answer today. My name is***** am a veterinarian with over 30 years of experience, and I will do my best to help you. I am sorry to hear Spooky got these drugs that were not meant for her. How is she doing so far?

She's fine so far. She still ate and is running around playing currently

I am glad to hear it. Enalapril is not a worry; this drug is pretty safe and she did not get a large dose. I am researching the atenolol now.

It looks like the atenolol at this dose might only be a problem if Spooky were asthmatic.

Okay, she is not

If she is a healthy young cat she should be OK.

Great news thanks
She is. Great thanks
