My two year old sweetheart sphynx just got diagnosed with HCM. It's not too extreme but it's noticeable... Our vet prescribed Lotensin/Benazepril however side effects include kidney damage so I'm hesitant to begin him on it right away. A lot of sphynx owners with babies who also have HCM say they give them atenolol and I want to get some advice on how that's worked for some people or what other medications have helped. I'm trying my best to stay positive but I can't stop thinking of his little life being shortened. It's breaking my heart. I want to give him the longest happiest life possible and I am so torn on how to do so. Please offer suggestions!
