Hello I am Dr. Joey. I'm sorry Dr. Altman appears to be offline. Thanks for asking your question and trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 18 years of experience.

These two drugs are in the same category and do the same thing to help heart disease, but they are not the same drug. The choice of which to prescribe is often doctor preference. Do you have specific questions about them that I might be able to answer for you.
