Please go for estimation of CBC, LFT,RFT and TP and if possible abdominal scan for establishing diagnosis Parental fluids (crystalloid), diuretics, vit. C, amoxy/doxy, liver support with LOLA( L ornithine L aspartame), protein diet (to help settle hypoproteneima if there), multivitamins should form the mainstay of Rx

Treatment Inj lassix 2mg/kg 4hrs interval QID for 3-5days Later on decrease the frequency and dose of drug Don't tap ascitis Upto 2weeks u can give There is no imbalance of potassium because its interstitial fluid Even relieved after 3-4days should use drug for minimum 7days

Prognosis and Rx will depend upon aetiology.If Rx done as per aetiology the animal will survive, but will take time.
