Product Information

Salix will help to remove excess fluid in the body as a result of a multitude of health problems.

Salix is: a diuretic medication that helps to remove fluid from the body as necessary. It can also be used in the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension).

What are the benefits?

    What outcomes can be expected? Salix will not cure the underlying reason for edema (excess fluid accumulation) in your pet but will help manage his/her symptoms and help him/her to feel better.

    Salix works quickly so your pet may start to feel better fast but it wears off quickly so it needs to be given regularly as directed by your veterinarian in order to maintain the desired effect.

    Who is it for: dogs, cats, and horses.

    How is it given?

    1.Give all medication by mouth(orally) exactly as directed by your veterinarian.

    2.Salix can be given with or without food but make sure your pet has unlimited access to water.

    3.Call your veterinarian if you have any questions about how to use Salix properly.

    How does it work? Salix is a diuretic that works by increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood. This extra salt and water is then passed out through the urine which helps to remove excess fluid from the body.

    Salix is available as: tablets.

    Generic Name:Furosemide(Common Drug Name)

    Common Brand Name:Salix

    Dose and Administration:Follow your veterinarian’s exact instructions regarding the use of Salix. Give this medication by mouth (orally). Give with or without food. Your pet should have access to water at all times while taking Salix as it will cause your pet to urinate more often.

    If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember but never double dose. Give this medication only to the pet it has been prescribed for.

    Uses:Salix helps to remove excess fluid from the body due to heart failure, heart problems, kidney problems, and other medical conditions.

    Possible Side Effects: Possible side effects may include dehydration with excessive thirst and increased or decreased urine production; electrolyte imbalances (e.g., low sodium, potassium, or calcium), increased heart rate, weakness, depression, vomiting, and restlessness. In cats, Salix may affect hearing or balance, or cause a tilt of the head. Other side effects may occur.

    Some pets can also experience a true allergic reaction to Salix.

    Precautions:Do not use in animals with a known allergy to furosemide or sulfa drugs.

    Salix will cause your pet to urinate more often which may cause your pet to have more "accidents" and or use the litter box more often.
