Prayers for Lola

Recommended Posts

Just left my sweet girl at the hospital. She's been 'off' for a couple of weeks and had begun to skip meals and lose weight.  Blood work indicates possible kidney/pancreas/spleen involvement. Ultrasound shows (maybe) an enlarged spleen. Aren't Greyhound spleens unusually large? Thankfully, no masses. Lola will be on sub-q, famotidine and cerenia for one or two days while the vet continues to investigate.

Please keep my girl in your thoughts and prayers.

Lola (AMF Won't Forget ~ 04/29/15 -07/22/19) - My girl. I'll always love you.

Wendy (Lost Footing ~ 12/11/05 - 08/18/17) ~ Forever in our hearts. "I am yours, you are mine".

Thanks all! Keep'em coming. Update call from vet - kidneys look good, she's resting quietly, getting fluids. No food or water until tomorrow.  No fever. BUN, ALT, creatinine and some other stuff high. Can't think right now. This is bringing up PTSD from when I lost Wendy three years ago from mystery symptoms of unspecified significance.

So so sorry to hear this. You have to be in shock.  Lola has had your undivided attention and you didn't  miss anything. The summer heat makes all dogs slightly off. And the killer is the positive update from the vet. Take a deep breath...and another tissue. So, so sorry.:grouphug
