Salix (furosemide) Diuretic Tablets for Pets

 

Why has my veterinarian prescribed Salix® Tablets?

Furosemide is a diuretic that is prescribed to help reduce the amount of water in your pet's body by increasing the flow of urine. Furosemide is also used to treat high blood pressure and reduce the workload on the heart and arteries.

 

How do I give Salix® Tablets?

  • First, READ THE LABEL CAREFULLY.
  • Give Furosemide to your pet as directed by your veterinarian.
  • Give this medicine with meals.
  • If Furosemide is prescribed as a liquid, measure the dose carefully.
  • Try to give this medicine at about the same time each day.
  • DO NOT give your pet more medicine than directed.
  • DO NOT give your pet medicine more often than prescribed.
  • Try not to miss giving any doses.

 

If I miss a dose, what do I do?

If you miss a dose, give it to your pet as soon as possible. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose, then continue with the regular dosing schedule. Do not give your pet two doses at once.

 

How do I store Salix® Tablets

Keep this medicine out of reach of children.

Store this medicine at room temperature in a dry, cool place. Keep this medicine away from heat and direct sunlight.

Do not store this medicine in damp places, in the bathroom, or near the kitchen sink. This medication can break down when exposed to moisture or heat.

 

What are the potential side effects Salix® Tablets?

If you notice the following symptoms in your pet, contact your veterinarian: excessive thirst, drowsiness, weakness, restlessness, diminished urination in relation to fluid intake, stomach upset, or a fast heart rate. Notify your veterinarian if side effects are persistent or troublesome.

Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.

 

What about possible drug interactions?

Be sure to tell your veterinarian about any other medications or supplements you are giving your pet.

It’s not uncommon for your veterinarian to prescribe two different medications, which may cause a drug interaction to occur. If this happens, your veterinarian may change the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely.

Furosemide may interact with: theophylline, aminoglycoside antibiotics, corticosteroids, corticotropin, amphotericin B, aspirin, tubocurarine, succinylcholine, probenecid, sulfinpyrazone, and insulin.

Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together.
