48848Re: 13yo RCM - lasix not working
- Aug 30, 2013From what I've been told by our cardiologist, the kidney can develop a sort of tolerance to lasix. Though sprio is not as strong a diuretic, it is potassium sparing from what I've heard, and our cardiologist says it works in a different part of the kidney tubules.
Has anyone also heard this?

I think you are onto something with the potassium. Spiro is not as bad for
potassium so hopefully you will get a balance. Vetmedin is called
pimobendan if that helps.
