Description
Product Details

Salix® Tablets

Product Information

Salix® is a diuretic that works by blocking the absorption of salt and fluid in the kidneys causing an increase in urine output, helping reduce the amount of water in the body. Salix® is an effective diuretic possessing a wide therapeutic range. Pharmacologically it promotes the rapid removal of abnormally retained extracellular fluids. The rationale for the efficacious use of diuretic therapy is determined by the clinical pathology producing the edema.

furosemide

Side Effects

Usage

Salix® should be given orally as directed by your veterinarian.

Cautions

Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication you are giving to your pet. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, and a drug interaction may be anticipated. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. The following drugs can potentially interact with furosemide: 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.

Allergic reactions to medications may occur. Be sure to inform VetSource and your veterinarian if your pet has any known drug sensitivities or allergies. If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to: swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; vomiting; widespread hives and itching.
