Guest gottaluvgreysindy Posted August 25, 2008 Share Posted August 25, 2008 Good News:We celebrated yesterday in our house the fact that Deuce is TWO YEARS post diagnosis/amputation!!!! He lived it up and ate chicken breasts, peanut butter sandwich, turkey neck and of course lots of treats. This boy is officially an osteo-warrior and an amazing example of never giving up hope because God is Good!!!!! Bad News:He hasn't been feeling 100% lately and it had me worried. Ideally I wanted to get him back to OSU, but gas prices and time prevent that so I took him to a local vet that I trust on Friday. They ran lots of tests and he just called me to give me some results. Looks like there are signs of infection and likely in the kidneys. He was talking vet talk of course and I caught some of his levels: BUN 43 Creatinin 2.3 White Count 25,000 He said the proteins in the urine where high. He plans to give him an antibiotic and recheck in two weeks. Unless he gets worse or starts vomitting then he wants to see him sooner. How do these levels look? What other questions should I ask? Is there any other experiences or things I should do in the mean time? Please say prayers for my very special boy. He is still eating OK at this point and hopefully will continue to do so.
