Heart insufficiency action may cause fluids in the lungs.
If your pet is on a chemical diuretic, it is fine to use both, however, if on the drug you will also need to restore the loss of potassium in the body. You will find is using natural heart and diuretic remedies the drugs will be eventually reduced, your vet will be guiding you when to do this as improvement is seen and fewer drugs are needed. In many cases, the Vet will say that drugs are no longer needed. This only happens when you are also using natural medicines for this condition, as they restore and support naturally - unlike drugs are given which just control symptoms only.
If your pet is on heart drugs, please see the Heart Support Set formulas. If your pet is still having fluid build when on heart drugs, then the drug is not quite efficient enough, why no support the heart function naturally as well.
