Please Keep Fritz In Your Prayers


Recommended Posts

We have a vet appointment for tomorrow (Monday) at 4:15 central. I posted a week or so ago about him acting kind of punky and having lost some weight. I switched his food to something with more calories and he gets an ensure after dinner in the evening every other day. He looks a little thicker to me, which is good, and I was almost considering cancelling his appointment because he seemed a lot better.

 

Today he seems to be favoring one of his rear legs. He is using it but seems to be kind of cautious when he walks. He didn't run in the yard today and just kind of meanders around. He had no trouble squatting to poop or anything like that, his appetite is good and he wags his tail for me, but something is amiss in his eyes...he just looks at me like he's hurting. No other signs though, just the looks he gives me.

 

I am TERRIFIED of the C word and I can't stop crying. I am really really really hoping he's just thrown something in his back that can be fixed with some chiropractic. I've manipulated his legs and he doesn't seem to mind that at all but when he's standing, if I scritch near his butt he tenses...I don't know if he's hurting or if he's doing his butt dance.

 

Please please please let it be an easy fix...he's my boober boy and I can't bear the thought of anything worse than a pinched nerve :( I am so scared right now...

Sending prayers and hoping it's just a minor muscle thing that'll get better with rest.

*UPDATE*

 

Just got home...turns out the boy has lots of blood in his urine and it's probably a kidney infection...we did some bloodwork, should get it back tomorrow. We have antibiotics for him and we'll go from there. The infection is making him walk funny, doc adjusted him and could tell he was in pain when he got to his kidney area.

 

He's acting like a nutty idiot today...pogoing around when I grabbed his leash, smiling at me. He's pretty worn out though so we'll get started on the antibiotics and try to put some more weight on him...he's down to 61 lbs...he raced at 63/64 lbs. Poor baby.

 

Thank you all for all of your prayers and well wishes...we'll keep you updated.
