      I gave the dandelion as a preventive daily for 6 months. I upped the dose
      I saw early signs of fluid build up, such as the 'flank' breath... breathing
      with the lower flanks used as bellows. The fluid got reabsorbed within
      without the stress of an ER visit.

      A vet can tell if there is fluid in the lungs from listening to the lungs
      heart. It can be seen on xrays, but once you know your cat is prone to it,
      is no longer necessary to do an xray each time. Other signs are there.
