Fair Balance

SALIX is a highly effective diuretic-saluretic which, if given in excessive amounts, may result in dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, enhancing the risk of circulatory collapse, thrombosis, and embolism. The animal should be observed for early signs of fluid depletion with electrolyte imbalance, and corrective measures should be administered. See package insert for full information regarding contraindications, warnings, and precautions. Salix may lower serum calcium levels and cause tetany in rare cases of animals having an existing hypocalcemic tendency.
