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.

Can Furosemide Cause Dehydration in Dogs and Cats?
Answer

Yes, Furosemide can cause dehydration as a potential side effect. Furosemide works by increasing urine output and reducing excess fluid in the body, leading to an increased risk of dehydration if the animal is not adequately hydrated or if the medication is not used as directed. Signs of dehydration may include decreased urine output, dry mouth, lethargy, sunken eyes, and skin that is slow to return to its normal position when pulled up.

Can Furosemide Cause Hearing Loss in Dogs and Cats?
Answer

Yes, there is a potential for furosemide to cause hearing loss in dogs and cats, although it is considered to be a rare side effect. Furosemide belongs to a class of drugs called loop diuretics, which can cause changes in the levels of certain electrolytes in the body, including potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These changes can affect the function of the inner ear, leading to hearing loss. Sometimes, the hearing loss may be temporary and reversible once the medication is stopped or the dosage is adjusted. However, in other cases, the hearing loss may be permanent.

Can Furosemide Be Used to Treat Edema in Pets With Cancer?
Answer

Yes, Furosemide may be used to treat edema in pets with cancer, particularly in cases where the edema is due to cancer itself or as a side effect of cancer treatment such as chemotherapy. Edema is the accumulation of excess fluid in the body's tissues, and furosemide is a diuretic medication that helps to reduce this excess fluid by increasing urine output.

Can Furosemide Be Used to Treat Hypertension in Dogs and Cats?
Answer

Yes, furosemide can treat hypertension (high blood pressure) in dogs and cats, but it is not typically the first-line treatment. Furosemide is primarily a diuretic medication commonly used to treat congestive heart failure and other conditions that cause fluid buildup in the body. However, in some cases, furosemide may be used with other medications to help manage hypertension in pets. Furosemide works by reducing the fluid volume in the body, which can help lower blood pressure.

Can Furosemide Be Used to Prevent Pulmonary Edema in Dogs and Cats?
Answer

Yes, furosemide can be used to prevent pulmonary edema in dogs and cats, particularly in cases where there is a risk of fluid accumulation in the lungs due to heart disease or other conditions.

Answer

Yes, furosemide can be used to address ascites in dogs and cats, especially when the ascites are brought on by liver or heart illness. The buildup of fluid in the abdomen region is known as ascites, which can result in swelling, pain, and other symptoms. Furosemide is a diuretic drug that helps to reduce extra bodily fluid by increasing urine production, which can help to lessen ascites symptoms and reduce the quantity of fluid in the abdominal region.

Can Furosemide Be Used in Animals With Hypercalcemia?
Answer

Furosemide is not typically used to treat hypercalcemia (high calcium levels in the blood) in animals. In fact, furosemide can worsen hypercalcemia by promoting calcium retention in the kidneys. Furosemide works by inhibiting the reabsorption of sodium, chloride, and water in the kidneys, but it also inhibits the reabsorption of calcium in the loop of Henle. This can lead to an increase in the amount of calcium excreted in the urine, exacerbating hypercalcemia.

What Is the Mechanism of Action of Furosemide?
Answer

The mechanism of action of furosemide involves its ability to inhibit the reabsorption of sodium, chloride, and water in the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle in the kidneys. This leads to increased excretion of sodium, chloride, and water in the urine, which reduces excess fluid in the body. Furosemide works by binding to a specific transporter protein called the Na-K-2Cl cotransporter, which is responsible for the reabsorption of these ions in the loop of Henle. By blocking this transporter, furosemide prevents the reabsorption of sodium, chloride, and water, which leads to diuresis (increased urine production) and a reduction in fluid volume in the body.

Furosemide

Furosemide is a diuretic, which is used to treat congestive heart failure, pulmonary edema, kidney disease, high blood pressure and edema. This drug is essentially a โ€˜loop diuretic drugโ€™, which works on a specific area of the kidney known as Henleโ€™s loop. Furosemide restricts the increased absorption of chloride, sodium, potassium and water into the kidney, thus supporting the removal of excessive fluid. Furosemide significantly lowers accumulation of fluid and prevents the occurrence of edema.

Certain precautions should be taken prior to administering Furosemide to the pet. The drug should not be prescribed for animals that are allergic to it. Never use it in pets that have disorders associated with electrolyte imbalance. Furosemide should be used with extreme caution in animals suffering from diabetes, kidney disease, dehydration, specific electrolyte abnormalities, and liver disease. Furosemide exhibits the tendency to interact with various other drugs including ototoxic antibiotics such as gentamicin or streptomycin; NSAIDS such as aspirin or Rimadyl; Phenothiazines such as acepromazine; and Insulin, digoxin, and beta blockers such as propranolol. Therefore, consult a veterinarian and pharmacist before administering the drug to the pet.

Negative side effects may include disturbed electrolyte balance, low potassium levels, dehydration and affected kidneys. Hearing loss can result from a major overdose.

Furosemide is available in 12.5 mg, 20 mg, 40 mg, 50 mg and 80 mg tablets. The dose of furosemide recommended for dogs and cats is 1-2mg/pound once or twice a day (at 6-8 hour intervals). Cats are usually given a lower dose of the drug.

Furosemide might be responsible for numerous side effects. Some of the side effects of furosemide include nausea, vomiting, weakness, loss of appetite, increased urination, electrolyte imbalance, diabetes, itching and rash. Symptoms of overdose may include electrolyte imbalance, dehydration, seizures, hearing loss, anemia, heart failure, kidney damage and coma.

Product works but difficult to give correct dosage
VERIFIED PURCHASER

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.
