Stage 4 heart murmur and Ladix

My 14 yr old Dachsie Hannah has Stage 4 heart murmur...she has been on Fortekor 2.5 mgs PO BID...she is tolerating this well...lately she has been coughing a bit more...took her to the vet today as concerned about CHF....Hannah weighs 16 pounds...Dr prescribed Lasix 20mgs PO BID....no blood tests or renal functions tests were done...I did some research as maximum dosage for her should be only 32 mgs per 24 hrs....Dr prescribed up to 40 mgs per 24 hr period... is this acceptable??? I also read that Lasix should NOT be prescribed for heart murmur with coughing...I have previously lost a Dachsie to Vet error in prescription...I am rather cautious about meds for my girlies...thank you so much in advance
