My 16 yr old chi rat terrier mix has a heart murmur n is taking Furosemide 12.5 meds 3x day for excess water n Pimobenden 5mg .25 every 12 hrs. Still has a cough. Should I ask for a different heart med or water pill? Jake is doing fine otherwise. Thank y’all for all you do for our fur babies!!!

It may be helpful to add enalapril. An older medication that may also help is digoxin, but this is not used as much any more. Further, your pet may need high blood pressure medication. Have the blood pressure checked.
