  1. We can't figure out what's wrong with my (almost) 12 year old greyhound. I took her to the vet 3 weeks ago with diarrhea. Metronidazole 500mg and subcutaneous fluids didn't help. Soon after, she started drinking lots of water and became incontinent. If I don't make her go out every 2 hours (longer at night), she will pee in her bed. After another visit last week, my vet suspected mild azotemia and renal insufficiency. Her specific gravity (refractory) was 1.020; no protein in urine; BUN was 37; and CRE was 2.0. The vet wanted keep her overnight and do an IV fluid diuresis, but I opted for m
  2. I got Neal over the 4th holiday weekend to replace my male Hoss who died of osteo last winter. Neal is a 3 year old black male retired from the Tijuana track. He had to have a foxtail removed from his ear so the vet ran bloodwork and creatinine came back at 2.0, so they had me bring him in yesterday for a kidney panel. Results were 1.9 creatinine, 22 BUN and 23 SDMA. The vet said he definitely has kidney disease but doesn't propose to change diet yet other than to increase amount to get weight up some and will weigh him again in a month. He'll run another panel in 6 mos - 12 mos to see
  3. I need advise on what to do with my 10 1/2 year old greyhound name Jazz. Jazz has kidney disease, diagnose last October. She was diagnosed with mrsa on her toe last Thanksgiving been on antibiotics for all of this time. Did culture a few weeks ago and the mrsa is finally gone however her toe is swollen and red. I still soak it in a antibiotic wash and keep it covered so she does not lick it. Last week she was not feeling good and my vet told me to bring her into the hospital so he could try and figure out what is going on. They did an ultrasound of her abdomen and found a growt
  4. Hi Folks, Haka, whose 13th birthday was a month ago yesterday, was peeing blood today. He'd been peeing in the house, BUT, his sister pees in the house and we thought this was him thinking "this is ok"... Anyway, DH noticed the blood on the morning walk and we went in to the vet at 10am. He peed 2 more times in the house before we got there, which is definitely unusual. She probed his prostate (which he LOVED, not ) and there's no raise in temperature. He wasn't happy with probing his penis either, so we assume there is some irritation. He did pee "on demand" when I to
  5. Hello, This is a non grey post, so I apologise for that. I joined as we are waiting to get our greyhound Peggy. However, I thought that I would still ask on here as everyone seems very helpful We found out last night that my parents dog Barney (flat coated retriever) has kidney failure he is only 5 and such a lovely dog, we were lookign forward to him and Peggy spending lots of time together and my dad is just about to retire so it's such a shame. I was wondering if anyone has dealt with kidney failure and if they have any advice for us? He is going on a special Royal Canin Rena
  6. Margarita is 10 yrs old and in kidney failure. She just had her kidney's jump started for the 3rd time since July. The last being last Thursday, her BUN values jumped to 85 and Phos 7.9. The vet added AlternaGel with her food; however she does not want to eat her food. I am suppose to give her NF can food and she does not want it anymore so I have tried everything that she likes (chicken, beef, and turkey) to eat and still no appetite. The only thing she like is Ensure and I give her that to drink. My vet wants me to keep in contact with him every 2 days. Margarita goes Friday for b
