Furosemide is a diuretic used to treat fluid retention (edema) in dogs, cats, and horses with congestive heart failure, liver disease, or certain kidney disease. Furosemide is also used to treat high blood pressure. Furosemide for dogs and cats is sold as a 10 mg/ml 60 ml bottle oral solution or by the tablet and sold for dogs, cats, and horses as a 50 mg/ml injectable solution. Furosemide for cats, dogs, and horses requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

How does Furosemide (Salix) work?

Furosemide is a potent diuretic which works by blocking the absorption of salt and fluid in the kidney tubules causing an increase in urine output.

Keep plenty of water available for your pet or horse to drink. Furosemide can make your pet's or horse's skin sensitive to sunlight. There are possible adverse interactions with other drugs, so fully disclose to your veterinarian what you are giving your pet or horse. This medication should not be used in pregnant or nursing animals.

Furosemide can make your pet's or horse's skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburn may occur. Periodic blood tests, as well as kidney or liver function tests, may be necessary. Furosemide will make your pet or horse urinate more often. Your pet or horse should have drinking water readily available to prevent dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.
