Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has she been on treatment?

What dose of Lasix is she on and how much does she weigh?

Any changes to her breathing or paling of her gums?

Does she seem to be aware that she is passing urine? Any straining?
