Presentation

White, circular, biconvex, flat-faced tablets with bevelled edges, breakline and embossed F40 on one face, CP or DP on the reverse. Each tablet contains Frusemide 40 mg (Furosemide).

Uses

Frusecare tablets are for use in cats and dogs only, for the treatment of oedema associated with cardiac insufficiency, renal dysfunction and trauma. In animals with pulmonary oedema of cardiac origin, combined therapy with other medicinal products may be indicated. Furosemide is a potent diuretic with an onset of activity normally within 1 hour of administration and a duration of activity of approximately 4 hours.

Dosage and administration

For oral administration only. Dogs and cats above 4 kg bodyweight:
Dosage up to 5mg/kg bodyweight, or one Frusecare tablet per 8 kg bodyweight, 1 to 2 times daily with an interval of 6 to 8 hours between administrations.
For animals weighing between 4 and 8 kg, one half of one tablet should be administered. The tablets may be divided by breaking along the score line. For maintenance, the dosage should be reduced to 1-2mg/kg per day.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Do not use in animals weighing less than 4 kg.
Do not use in animals with acute glomerular nephritis, renal failure with anuria, electrolyte deficiency disease or in animals that have received an overdosage of digitalis. Do not use concurrently with aminoglycoside antibiotics or corticosteroids.
Therapeutic efficacy may be impaired by increased intake of drinking water. Where the animal's condition permits, water intake should be restricted during treatment with Frusecare tablets.
Monitoring of plasma potassium levels is advisable during periods of prolonged treatment of combined therapy with cardiac glycosides. Potassium supplements may be necessary.
Frusecare tablets may be used in pregnant and lactating animals.
Concurrent administration with aminoglycoside antibiotics may result in ototoxicity. Concurrent administration with cephalosporin antibiotics may result in nephrotoxicity. Concurrent administration with sulphonamide antibacterials may result in sulphonamide allergy. Concurrent use of corticosteroids may increase the risk of hypokalaemia.

We started treating Frusecare with Cardisure for our dog Louis' enlarged heart. After a week or so we found that Louis was getting very restless and agitated. We carried on with the medication but things got worse, to the point that Louis couldn't sleep at all, and neither could we. We all got very stressed and exhausted. At his next appointment the vet reduced his medication to half, and this really worked. The Frusecare was causing the problem. Now Louis, who is seven, is doing well.

Great when used in combination with Cardisure tablets for dogs who suffer from heart conditions. Have been using this for two years and my 12 year old Shih Tzu is still going strong :)

Out of stock

Pickles Langton

I am in urgent need of furosemide @ 40mg.
Could you please advise when you expect to have them back in stock.
Many thanks.

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Pickles,

Has your vet written the active ingredient name, 'frusemide' on your prescription?

If they write the name of the active ingredient, and don't state the brand name, then we can provide you with other frusemide prescription medicationg while Frusecare 40mg is out of stock.

For example: Frusemide Tablets For Dogs And Cats or Frusedale For Dogs And Cats

I hope this is helpful!

Kind regards,

VioVet
