Besides affecting EIPH, does furosemide administration have other effects? Kentucky Equine Research (KER) has conducted multiple studies to help answer the following questions:
• How does furosemide affect body weight and performance?
• What are the effects of different furosemide doses?
• How does furosemide affect water intake?
• How long does it take the horse to recover from furosemide administration?
• How does furosemide affect electrolyte and mineral balance?
• Can recovery be influenced through dietary supplementation?
