Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry to hear about Monte's heart. If you look at his gums, are they pink in color or are they pale? What is the heart medicine your vet gave you?
Lasix usually does work quickly to remove fluid from the lungs. How much does Monte weigh, and how much Lasix is he getting?
If his gums are pale, or purple in color, this may be an emergency. He might need supplemental oxygen.
You can give 12.5 mg 3 times daily, or even 1 and 1/2 pills 3 time daily. Are his gums pink?
I have not heard back from you; I hope you were able to see my response. How is Monte doing?
