Product description

Furosemide is a diuretic-saluretic for prompt relief of edema in dogs.

Active ingredients

Each Furosemide tablet contains:

Name Furosemide (mg)
Furosemide 12.5mg Tablets 12.5
Furosemide 20mg Tablets 20
Furosemide 40mg Tablets 40
Furosemide 80mg Tablets 80

Indications for use

  • Furosemide is indicated for prompt relief of edema.

  • Furosemide is indicated for oral use alone or in combination with furosemide injection in the treatment of edema (pulmonary congestion, ascites) associated with cardiac insufficiency and acute noninflammatory tissue edema.

Administration and dosage

  • The usual oral dosage of Furosemide tablets is 1 to 2 mg/lb body weight (approximately 2.5 to 5 mg/kg). A prompt diuresis usually ensues from the initial treatment.

  • Administer orally once or twice daily at 6 to 8 hour intervals. The dosage should be adjusted to the individual’s response. In severe edematous or refractory cases, the dose may be doubled or increased by increments of 1.0 mg per pound of body weight. The established effective dose should be administered once or twice daily. The daily schedule of administration can be timed to control the period of micturition for the convenience of the client or veterinarian. Mobilization of the edema may be most efficiently and safely accomplished by utilizing an intermittent daily dose schedule, i.e., every other day or 2 to 4 consecutive days weekly.

  • Diuretic therapy should be discontinued after reduction of the edema, or maintained after determining a carefully programmed dosage schedule to prevent recurrence of edema. For long-term treatment, the dose can generally be lowered after the edema has once been reduced. Re-examination and consultations with the client will enhance the establishment of a satisfactorily programmed dosage schedule. Clinical examination and serum BUN, CO2 and electrolyte determinations should be performed during the early period of therapy and periodically thereafter, especially in refractory cases. Abnormalities should be corrected or the drug temporarily withdraw
