Pet meds for dog with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

Note:  I posted this in the Pets sub-forum so hope it's okay to post here as well - wanted to make sure it got seen.  :)

Hola!  My husband and I lived in Playa del Carmen for a year and loved it aside from the noise of Centro.  We've been back in the US traveling for a couple of years, but Mexico keeps calling us back.  We miss it so much!  We would like to give Progreso a try this time, but our 10-year old Boston Terrier has recently been diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure, which complicates things.  She is doing very well on three prescribed medications from her vet and a low-sodium diet.  The diet doesn't worry me (we can cook her meals if we can't find appropriate food in Mexico), but the pills do.  Does anyone know if these medications are available from Mexican vets?

Vetmedin (pimobendan), Furosemide (generic for Lasix, a diuretic), Benazepril (an ACE inhibitor)

Thank you very much for any information you can provide.

I know they have Furosemide because it is a very old drug.
If I had the problem, I would contact a vet in your area of choice, they would know.  For instance
Coco's Animal Welfare Clinic

Thanks, Travellight!  Since I posted this, I actually did make contact with a vet in our chosen area and got good news about the pet medications.  One more roadblock checked off the list.   :)

I appreciate your taking the time to respond.
