Re: [FH] Stage D Congestive Heart Failure
- I hope this isn't a silly question -- I have no experience with fluid buildup ---- but why can't they implant a drain tube, the way they put drains in the heads of people with head injuries, then the excess fluid just drains out as fast as it accumulates??

Subject: [FH] Stage D Congestive Heart Failure
We started Winston on Carvedilol alittle over 4 weeks ago. He is still in congestive heart failure. How many of you have had kitties that are constanly building fluid? What have your vets done? I give sub q lasix instead of oral, but now it is barely helping and fluid returns within 8 hours. We are not open mouth breathing. Just increased respiratory rate. I need advice. I am out of ideas :(
