- Apr 7, 2012My cat has CRF, although it is under control. I know that might be an issue, but what you said about that "potent tool" on hand rings so true with me. I would never get over it if she went into heart failure and I couldn't get her to the doctor in time.

My HCM cat, Zax, takes Lasix twice a day. We monitor his resting respiration rate closely and periodically give him an extra one as needed (when his respiration rate increases by 20%). My vet has given us clear-cut indications on when we should give the extra Lasix and how often, etc...I feel so much better knowing that we have a potent tool on hand in combatting fluid build-up.
We also monitor his kidney function closely since he takes Lasix regularly.
