Hi, My cavalier Kaytee has a heart murmur She is on fortekor and frusemide.
At the moment she is on One and a Half 20MG frusemide aday.
I used to give her a whole tablet at 1pm and then half at 7pm, but then I realised there is a massive gap inbetween them.
So we broke the tablets into quarters and have started giving one half at 9am half at 3pm and half at 9pm so they are 6 hours apart then 12 at night.
It is a really hard one as I don't want her to need a wee when we are in bed as she will hold herself and leak if I don't wake which isn't nice for her, but at the same time her cough is worse at night and in the morning and thats then she has the 12 hours gap
Is it normal for her cough to be there in the morning really quite bad but after a few wees it seems better?? SORRY to seem so daft.
I go to bed a 12-1am can you think of a better plan or stick with it? Its just when she was having a whole one in the morning that made more sense to me to get all the fluid out that had built up in the night, Is half every time still as effective?
SORRY again and thank you xxx
