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.

Furosemide

Strenghts it comes in:

This is not a problem for most patients but a different diuretic may be a better choice for a diabetic patient. Hearing loss has been reported, especially in cats, when large amounts of injectable salix have been used in a crisis.
