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.
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.
I have blogged pictures of my Katie dog here before. These days she is a shadow of her former self. Her kidney and her liver are packing in. She is on medication to help her but she is still urinating and pooing all over the house. I’ve been washing bedding and rugs etc daily for a few month now. The vet has even told me not to walk her just let her wander in the garden when she wants to. We used to enjoy walking in the forest especially at dusk but that’s had to stop. She is not in pain but damn I can see its breaking her heart. We have both become recluse like.
Its heart breaking. I know she is 15 year old now but I’d hoped to have her for a few year yet.
Just need to hold on and pray that Katie’s health improves. Please.
Katie dog is coming home tonight just after 7. She has to go back next week for an overnight stay but hopefully they have got her hepatitis controlled.
I know she is getting old but she means the world to me.
I can’t believe the vet reckons my Katie has hepatitis. I mean how the hell can a dog contract that?
Katie has been kept at the vets for blood work and scans. I’ve to call back between 3 and 4 this afternoon.
The vets parting words were “we may not be able to do anything for her”. Cheery bugger eh
Things keep getting worse. Now my lovely dog Katie is so unwell. She is being sick every where , she can hardly stand up , her back legs are barely holding her up.
I know she’s 15 year old and getting old but its breaking my heart seeing her like this. She can’t even take her medication.
Vets first thing and lots of chanting and prayers tonight.
After the night from hell last night things got even worse today.
My Katie dog had to go to the vets. They said she has a tumor growing from inside her anus and its now showing outside, hence me seeing it today. She has pills to take, liquid to put in her food. Then on Friday she has an op to cut it away.
What a day 😦
