Furosemide tablets (brand name Salix in animals, Lasix in humans) are a diuretic medication used in animals to treat fluid buildup in the heart and lungs. Furosemide acts quickly and leaves the system after a short time, allowing for safe and effective treatment with low risk of toxic buildup. In addition, furosemide tablets can be used to treat certain electrolyte imbalances, such as calcium and potassium. Furosemide requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
