Customer Question

Our dog, a King Charles cocker spaniel, 11 years old, is on 5mg Vetmedin-half a tablet twice a day(for 4-5 months)- and more recently on Frusemide 20mg- half a tablet twice a day(for 2 months).
He has recently had a lot of water retention-his gut is swollen-and his breathing is laboured.
Is there any alternative treatment available?
