Diuretics for Dogs and Cats

Diuretics for Dogs and Cats

Herbal remedies to help provide diuretic support to dogs and cats.

The immune system is a complex army of cells that are found throughout your pet’s body that provides a fortified defense against unwanted invaders. It is an intricate system that keeps your pet healthy and protects them against allergens, viruses, bacteria, microbes, parasites, toxins, foreign cells and cellular mutations (healthy cells which have mutated into irregular cells). The immune system is tasked with protecting EVERY cell in the animal body. 

Natural diuretics can be beneficial for your dog or cat as they may help promote improved kidney function as well as may help rid of toxins that have the potential to cause disease. However, because diuretics lower the amount of fluids in the body, they can deplete electrolyte balance (which can be dangerous) and can influence your pet's overall body’s balance. Please consult your vet before using diuretics for your dog or cat.

Any substance that helps the body to eliminate urine and get rid of excess fluids and salts is known as a diuretic. Diuretics can also cause increased perspiration and feces production. They cause the kidneys to excrete more sodium in the urine. Since the urine gets concentrated due to the increased sodium content, the body adds more water to the urine during the process of urine formation. 

Diuretics can be used for any disease where fluid can accumulate, and are most commonly used with heart and lung disease, but can also be used after a brain or bone injury. If your pet has congestive heart failure, diuretics are often the first drugs prescribed by a traditional vet. Other diseases where diuretics may be used include liver disease, certain kidney diseases, high blood pressure, arterial wall pressure or conditions where fluid or edema builds up in the tissues, even cancer.

Diuretics will typically cause a loss of retained fluid and certain electrolytes in the form of sodium and potassium. Diuretic use may result in weight loss well as lower blood pressure due to a drop in bodily fluids. Diuretics can cause mild dehydration, and in some cases, severe dehydration. It is important that your pet maintain fluid and electrolyte intake when using diuretics to avoid excessive thirst and more serious health problems.
