      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??

      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 :(
