Monster, my 8 year old Shih-Tzu suffered heart Failure about 7 months ago. She is currently taking both Enacard and Lasix. Is there anything she can take for the side effect of diarrhea that is a side effect of these meds? Also, is there any link between heart failure and what looked like brain siezures before she had her attack but have since almost completely stopped since she has been on these meds?
You can try giving your pet pepto- bismol for the diarrhea. Give 1/2 the childrens dose. Is your pet on the appropriate dose of medication b/c I rarely see diarrhea associated with the cardic medication although it is possible. Maybe your pet was not having "seizures" but having episodes of syncope (faiting episodes)??? Syncope is more likely related to cardiac dz. Thanks, vetcarerx vet team
