Salix (furosemide) Diuretic Tablets for Pets

What is Salix: Salix is the brand name product for the generic furosemide which is a loop diuretic. Salix can be used to increase water excretion in diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, pulmonary edema, and others. Salix works by increasing the amount of water that gets excreted through the kidneys and into the urine.


What are the side effects of Salix: Salix can cause fluid and electrolyte abnormalities and you should monitor your pet’s food and water intake. It is less likely, but your pet may experience stomach disturbances, blood disturbances, weakness, and restlessness. Signs that your pet may be dehydrated or experiencing electrolyte abnormalities include excessive thirst, lethargy, restlessness, reduced urination, stomach distress, or a fast heart rate. If your pet experiences any of these symptoms while taking Salix you should consult your pet's veterinarian immediately.

  • Q:

    What is the difference between Salix 12.5 and generic furosemide 1.5? My vet now gives me "furosemide" 12.5 as generic "Lasix".
    Asked on 5/14/2015 by catmommy from Wisconsin, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Salix is the brand name product of furosemide approved for use in dogs. Lasix is another brand name product of furosemide approved for use in humans. There should be no difference in the products besides who they are manufactured by and the strengths they are available in.

  • Q:

    I picked up a new prescription of Furosemide 50 mg tablets that are a different color and shape than before. These have 50 and 239 imprinted on the tablet where the previous tabs were oblong not round as these new ones are. Are these okay to give my dog
    Asked on 4/13/2015 by Caribou from Indiana, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Yes, the new pills you got are probably from a different manufacturer. A lot of times pharmacies get pills form multiple manufacturers and the pills are not always the same shape or color.

      Yes, it looks like those tablets are scored so they can be split more easily.

My dog's energy is back!

Comments about Merck Animal Health Salix (furosemide):

We have been using Salix for almost 3 years for our 12 year old "puppy", Porker. Our vet prescribed it, to help with his heart condition, which is prevalent in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed. After about 2 months on Salix, he was back to his energetic and gregarious self. We highly recommend Salix.

Comments about Merck Animal Health Salix (furosemide):

This was the first time that I purchased this medication from this website. It required a prescription from my vet which was done immediately and I received this order in less than a week. I had posted a question and it was answered in 3 days. I am glad to have found vetrxdirect and will continue to order from them. Great customer service and prices.

My dog has a heart murmur and her vet put her on Salix. I got a good price, in the dosage that the vet prescribed, and it was delivered to me in a very timely manner. My dog is doing very well on the medicine and I will order refills when I need them.
