Furosemide Oral Syrup
Furosemide Oral Syrup is a diuretic used in horses, dogs, cats, and originally developed for humans. In horses, furosemide is often used to prevent bleeds (exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage). In other animals, it is used to alleviate excess fluid buildup or to address electrolyte imbalances. Furosemide can also be used to treat certain kidney diseases, liver disease, and congestive heart failure.
