Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 30 years of experience and would be happy work with you.
While it is not a commonly used diuretic in dogs, it can be prescribed and when it is it is usually dosed at 2-4 mg/kg. For a dog of Jack's size, that would be considered within the therapeutic range. I am sure you will probably notice an increase in urination and you will want to make sure he has free access to fresh water, but a one time dose like this should present no problems.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
