- Jan 19, 2004Mittens (also mild CRF) has been on Lasix since Jan 9th when 150ccs of fluid
was drawn off his chest. He gets 1/4 of a 20mg tablet twice a day. I
weigh him frequently, usually after he poops; I just weighed him (after a
really big poop) and he has lost almost a pound since after the tap.
But he's a big cat of 21 pounds. He is not on fluids and does not seem
dehydrated; I syringe about 60-70 ml of diluted baby food a day in addition
to his liquidy meals. He's acting fine.
Of course the cardiologist office is close until tomorrow morning.
Should I be concerned about the weight loss, or is a loss of 4-5% of weight
normal after a cat starts Lasix? Would it make sense to skip the lasix
