There is no safe over the counter diuretics for Pets. Before using a diuretic blood work needs to be done to make sure the Kidneys and Liver are functioning properly. Your best bet would be to try and see a Vet this afternoon as some have Sat hours late and Some even have Sunday hours. If the Do is very uncomfortable, then an ER Vet may need to be seen for assessment. I would be happy to try and locate an ER Vet for you with a city, state and zip code. Joan
