Re: Anyone using Dandelion instead of Lasix?
- I have no experience with dandelion, but I do believe the
liquid "cranberry-based" digestive supplement my kitty was on for 15
months (purchased at Petsmart) was acting as a mild, natural diuretic
for him. At the time, I was giving because it contained vit E, and
was a liquid, which I needed to dilute the baby food. A year later, I
realized when we ran out and I couldn't get out to buy more for a
week, he would need his diuretic, furosemide. So I believe this
supplement was very helpful for him in terms of being a natural
diuretic .. I gave one or two tsp. twice a day. More details on last
link (sept 2004) of his website.
