my vet has put her on Lasix as she has a heart condition and I am looking for over the counter that is cheaper and will help her
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 1 year ago

Diurex is caffeine, not lasix. Was this the medication you meant?

Is your vet filling this medication or a pharmacy?
