I'm giving him 1/2 tablet of 12.5 mg Furosemide (Lasix), 1/2 of 1.25 mg Pimobendan twice a day and 1/2 talet of 2.5 mg of Enalapril.

He's sleeping right now.

Love Maximus.

Hi,

For those who had an experience with CHF, can you tell me what food will be good for him? I just cut his hair short and my gosh, he looks so small.. I have an appointment with his doctor next Wednesday so I'll ask him as well but would love your input. Thank you.

Love
Maximus.

I home cook for Babinka and my other three. Just no salts etc; fish oil or cocount oil is pretty great for them. my Vet is ok with this for her. what do you feed him now??? mabey the vet will make recommendations for you for the food....

I feed him boiled chicken and organic steamed rice. He won't touch his kibble at all which is ok with me. I just want to give him whatever is best.

Where can I get fish oil from? I also ordered some vitamin B supplement. Thanks.

Love
Maximus

it should be at a petstore or a health food store that carries it the omega 369 for animals. my meal for my three contains baked chicken/ a little bit of quinoa/carrots/a bit of potatoe and a little bit of peas and cocount oil. where are you living do you have any stores nearby for supplememts?? can your vet recommend any fish oil for him???

I live in Northern NJ. There are many petstores and I can also go to human supplement stores.

I'll definitely ask my vet.

Thank you very much for your input. I'll try your recipe tonight and see if he'll like it

BTW, I found a baby sitter. There's an old lady three houses down from me who has two dogs. She comes home from work during lunch and agreed to take Maximus out. She refuses to take any money so I'll give her a nice gift card.

There are still more good people than bad in this world.

Love
Maximus
