Thank you, Sue. I plan to ask our internist about whether spiro might be better for her -- or perhaps used in conjunction w/ the lasix at her re-check in 2 wks. She definitely had lots of fluid in her chest (200 mls) and abdomen (150 mls). I do not think she had fluid in her lungs, but I will double check. I suspect they will be repeating a chest film when she goes in for her re-check. The IM vet said she didn't, but her breath sounds were slightly harsh -- I guess that could still be from the pneumonia from the calici, but I am wondering about whether she had/has fluid in her lungs, too.

If she has fluid in the chest, she may benefit from spironolactone. That is
a diuretic that seems to work best on fluid in the chest rather than in the
lungs. I gave my Pepper both "spiro" and lasix together to control her
fluid since she had it both in her lungs and chest. If Ariel has fluid in
her lungs, you should continue with the lasix.
