    What outcomes can be expected?

    3. Dosage, frequency, and duration of treatment will vary.

    4. Call you veterinarian if you have any questions about how to use Furosemide correctly.

    Dose and Administration:Give this medication orally only according to your veterinarian’s instructions. Furosemide can be given with or without food but make sure your pet has access to water at all times.

    The dose, frequency, and duration of use will depend on your pet’s condition and his/her response to treatment.

    If you miss a dose, give it as soon as possible but do not give two doses at one time. Only give Furosemide to the pet it has been prescribed for.

    Uses:Furosemide is used to remove excess fluid from the body that is caused by congestive heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure, and other medical problems. It can also help to treat high blood pressure.

    Storage:Store away from children and pets at room temperature.

    Possible Side Effects: Animals that eat and drink normally are less likely to experience side effects. Side effects may include dehydration with excessive thirst and increased or decreased urine production. Other side effects are possible.

    Precautions:Do not give Furosemide to pets who are allergic to it or other sulfa drugs. Furosemide causes increased urination so your pet may have more accidents, may need to use the litter box more frequently, or may need to be walked more.

    Animals with kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, anuria (inability to produce urine) should not be given Furosemide or extreme caution should be used. Other precautions may need to be taken.

    A prescription from your veterinarian is required to purchase Furosemide.

                            My schnauzer takes this medicine twice a day. I just put it with her other heart meds in a "meatball" . The "meatball" is from her prescription canned dog food. Without this medicine she would not be able to spend more time with us.

                            Delivery was right on time.
