Furosemide (the generic substitute for Lasix and Salix) is a diuretic, which is utilized to treat pulmonary edema, kidney disease, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure and edema. Furosemide is fundamentally a "loop diuretic drug," as it works on a precise area of the kidney known as Henle's loop.
Furosemide is generally used to reduce the swelling and buildup of fluid, a common side effect in many medical conditions. Furosemide has auxiliary purposes treating other conditions as well, such as chemical imbalance and hypertension.
Furosemide restricts the accrued absorption of chloride, sodium, potassium and water into the kidney, thus supporting the removal of inordinate fluid and preventing the occurrence of edema.
Furosemide is the Generic Alternative to Lasix and Salix
Side Effects and Warnings

Rated 4 out of 5 by SusanPetMom Product works but difficult to give correct dosage
I like how this product reduces the fluid around my 9 lb poodles heart but the pills are 20 mg and I have to cut them in quarters for my dog which is a hassle. I tried the drops but it is hard to measure such a little amount and open her mouth to squirt it in. I wish they came in 10mg so I only had to cut it in half. Of course, then the pills would be smaller.
