What is Salix?
Salix is a diuretic, which is a medication used in many species to remove excess fluid from the body.

Who is it for?
Salix is for dogs, cats, and horses.

What are the benefits?

* Used to treat congestive heart failure and some other heart diseases
* Treats fluid in the lungs and certain kidney diseases
* Also treats high blood pressure, high potassium blood levels, fluid in the abdomen, and certain kinds of tissue swelling

How does Salix work?
Salix works by increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood. This extra salt and water is then passed out through the urine.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Yes, furosemide.

How is it given?
Salix is given orally, with or without food, with plenty of fresh drinking water. It should only be given to the pet for which it was prescribed. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Dosage, frequency, and duration of treatment vary with each disease, disease severity, and response to treatment. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian immediately.

What results can I expect?
Salix will not cure a disease, but will help manage the symptoms. Salix will start to have an effect within hours of being taken. The effect is short-lived, however, and the drug must consistently be given according to your veterinarian's directions to have the full effect.

What form(s) does it come in?
This medication comes in tablet form.
