    She's sick...very sick. Kidney functions are bad. Vet called me today. She needs IV therapy. He thinks it may be Lymes. I'm hoping that's all it is. She's been intermittently sick and even had bloody diarrhea last week. Her blood work and urinalysis isn't good. I have to bring her in Monday. Lymes can be treated, but if it's kidney disease, there's not a whole lot they can do but keep her comfortable. I'm really trying not to think about it.

    I'm praying it isn't kindey disease. That is what killed our poodle Essie, I'll be holding positive thoughts.

    Sending out prayers for your dog - I hope they figure it out quick and it is treatable.

    Having lost both of my beloved old girls in less than a year, you have my sincere sympathies. :9-07tears:

    If it turns out to be pancreatitus (sounds like it) let me know. My first dog was diagnosed with it and I had to become an expert. Your pup's symptoms sure found like it could be the same.

    Gosh, this is so hard. :9-07tears:

    Sending hugs and prayers for your baby. I'm so sorry. I hate when they are sick - they can't tell us what hurts and how scared they are. Love her up all you can~

    Hugs to fur baby and you. It's a hard thing to watch happen. She's got a couple thousand of board aunties thinking of her.

    Basically, we are treating the treatable. At then end of the visit, he asked me if I had any questions....I said, yeah, but not one I really wanted to ask. I asked him what the prognosis or how long does she have. Well, he said if she responds to the treatments over the next few weeks, she could have months and months and if she doesn't it could be weeks. I said months and months, but not 'year or years.' He just looked at me and said he was sorry. There are no words to describe what I'm feeling right now.
