      Seems like she does not have control of urination.
      Cardiologist said watch her breathing and ok to give lasix every 6 hours if needed.
      After 9 hours rate started rising.  Gave at 5AM  2PM and about six I noticed her bed was wet
      then I noticed puddle on floor.  Any suggestions?

      It may be that the meds are acting faster than her little bladder can empty. Can you put a litter box close to her bed? It may be that. Is she looking

        It may be that the meds are acting faster than her little bladder can empty. Can you put a litter box close to her bed? It may be that. Is she looking uncomfortable? Are her hind legs moving ok? Lethargic? If she is otherwise ok I think it is very probable that the diuretic is taking a lot of liquid, more and quicker than her bladder can handle. But give the vet a call in the morning.

        Mindy is acting fine.  Eating, legs working fine. Seems like it’s just leaking out of her.  Puddles in her bed and everywhere goes. Cardiologist started

          Cardiologist started her off on 12.5mg 2x day but after xrays showed fluid in lungs he said I could give her as often as every 6 hours (if needed).
          She is 11 pounds – I was doing every 8 hours 12.5 x 8 =37.5 
          My only concern was that I was not doing more harm by giving too much lasix.

          If she is leaking constantly, she may have had a small blood clot to the vessels ccontrolling the bladder. I would not wait and get her to the emergency vet

            Is there any possiiblity her tail has been caught or pulled? If so tell the vet that too. 
            A clot is an emergency and I wouldn't wait. Something is stopping the bladder nerves from working properly.
            But if its leaking because she cant get to the tray, that different, but constantly.. I`d go now
