5542Fluid Buildup Question
- Apr 30, 2002Hello,
Mocha has been doing well. However fluid has started building up in his
abdomen, but not around his heart or lungs. We had it drained three weeks
ago, most of it was lymphatic fluid, but it was mixed with a little blood.
Apparently this is a rather common occurrence in dogs, but rather rare in
cats. His cardiologist upped his dosage of lasix (he was already on
aldactone), but it has not helped. We have another appointment on Friday to
drain some more fluid. Has anyone else here experienced this? Is there
something else we can do to help stop the fluid from building up so fast?
Thank you for your help in advance,
Greg & Mocha
