SALIX is indicated under conditions where a diuretic effect is desired. It is effective in edema and ascites of cardiac and renal dogs, edema of the udder and edema of dependent horses. In dogs, cats and horses, it is effective in reducing localized non-inflammatory edema such as that caused by trauma. The rationale for diuretic therapy is dictated by the clinical pathology that causes the disease.
