      Well at least you have a diagnosis, even if it's something we've never heard of. Did they think it was caused by the lasix, and his not having enough potassium? Or is the low potassium a separate thing? Please join the vettalk and petvetcafe yahoogroups and ask about it there -- lots of vets on those lists.

      Winston was diagnosed with Metabolic Alkalosis yesterday and was admitted to the Animal Clinic for 24 hour IV fluids and potassium cholride.

      Anyone have any experience with this? Ever heard of it? I am having a hard time finding any information on the web. They can restore his potassium and cholride levels but the future is what is uncertain.

      Let me know if anyone has any info.
