Pharmacotherapeutic group: Diuretics, furosemide. ATCvet code: QC03CA01
Furosemide is a potent loop diuretic that increases urinary volume. It inhibits electrolyte resorption in the proximal and distal renal tubules and in the ascending Loop of Henle. Excretion of sodium ions, chloride ions and to a lesser extent, potassium ions is enhanced, as is water excretion. Furosemide has no effect on carbonic anhydrase.
Furosemide is excreted unchanged in the urine.
In dogs, after oral administration, furosemide causes a dose-dependent increase in urine volume starting 1 hour after administration, reaching a maximum 2-3 hours post administration and lasting approximately 6 hours.
