- Sep 1, 2011Hi Catie
Flusapex is the same as Lasix isnt it? Can you tell me what dose he is on
in mg? I dont know enough about the liquid lasix to help you, I`m afraid,
but when Trixi was bad she took 5mg every 4 hours. Lasix seems to last about
8 hours so might be useful if your vet agrees to spread it out. You can
also add spironolactone which is a diuretic and spares the kidneys. That helps
clear fluid as well.
Another drug is vetmedin. That has been a wonder for me and other kitties
in this group and I would highly recommend it. It is licensed for heart
failure in dogs and my cat tolerates it really well and it stabilised her when
she had next to n chance of surviving.
