Today is my dog's birthday. I thought it would be a nice idea to tell you all about what Telmisartan Compounded Oral Liquid saved him from.
My name is Lisa, and I have an 8-year-old Chihuahua named Taco. Taco loves being at home with me, cuddled up on the couch watching TV, or just snuggling in bed while I read. His favorite things are playing fetch, going on walks, and making new friends! He likes chasing squirrels but knows better than to do it when we are walking down the street. Despite being so small he also prefers laying down on his back to show off his happy tummy when he's in a good mood.
He was the runt of the litter and we had to hand feed him when he was born because his mother didn't have enough milk for all her pups. It wasn't long before his brothers and sisters left home and Taco was still tiny, but that never stopped him from living life to its fullest! He loves going everywhere with me: work, grocery shopping, out to eat--he even made it to my college graduation (and got worn out quickly). Everyone who meets Taco falls in love with him; he is such a happy little guy!
In October 2013 I noticed that Taco seemed to be drinking a lot more water than usual. I thought it might be because we were slowly switching him to adult food and he was craving extra water intake. I also noticed he wasn't eating as much and had lost a few pounds. I took him to the vet for his scheduled check-up, thinking he might have gotten into something bad or was sick. The doctor said she wanted to do some blood work because Taco seemed to be in good shape otherwise, to make sure everything was okay. Several days later I got a call saying his blood work was off. The results showed that Taco was suffering from high blood pressure and some kidney disease.
When Taco and I went back the doctor took some more tests. She said that high blood pressure can cause many issues, but is especially bad for dogs with kidney disease because it makes their kidneys work even harder to function. Taco was immediately started on Telmisartan Compounded Oral Liquid by mouth twice daily; if he wasn't already feeling better after the first month we would have to do a urine test and adjust the Telmisartan Compounded Oral Liquid if needed. Telmisartan Compounded Oral Liquid came highly recommended because there was a great record of success with it, so we were hopeful it would help Taco feel good again.
After three Telmisartan Compounded Oral Liquid days, Taco was back to himself. He was hungry, stopped drinking water all the time, and his normal energy level was back! Telmisartan Compounded Oral Liquid works on the renin-angiotensin system which is important for blood pressure regulation. It helped relax the blood vessels so that the heart doesn't have to work as hard, allowing for lower blood pressure. Telmisartan Compounded Oral Liquid has been very beneficial in increasing blood flow through the kidneys, which is important for dogs with kidney disease because it helps keep their kidneys from failing.
Telmisartan Compounded Oral Liquid has truly saved Taco's life many times over because it is giving him a chance to live his life without feeling sick or suffering from pain. And for that, I am so grateful it exists! There is no doubt that it is a miracle drug for dogs and cats.
