Update

The vet phoned earlier and gave good and bad news.
The good news is Katie’s liver has improved to such an extent that she no longer needs medicated for that. Great news.
The bad news is her kidneys appear to be worse. I have to get a urine sample from her so it can be sent away to get checked. The vet reckons her urine is to clear. Its as if anything she drinks is going straight through and is having little effect on her body. The good part being it can possibly be alleviated by diet. I hope so anyway.
Poor lamb is not having a good time at all. Hence me being awake at 3.50 in the morning after cleaning the carpet after she had a mishap.

Katie dog

Today Katie had to go to the vet. She was having her meds checked. Then we realised she’s lost more weight, that’s 8kilo this year.
Since having a diagnosis of liver and kidneys starting to fail. Her weight has just dropped and dropped. The vet reckons its age related. I’m not sure.
Her back legs have started to be much wider spread as well. Plus she has become incontinent in the house.
I’m convinced its due to the lack of exercise. The vet having told me to stop walking her.

I’d be very interested to hear your views.
