    DefaultUpdate on Buford



    I'm new here but wanted to post an update on my lovey. Thanks very much to all of you who have had kind words, prayers and good thoughts sent our way. Please continue to keep them coming. I do have some good news, though, thank the Lord. The vet said most of his tests came out normal but he has to have his blood work done over because his blood was clotted by the time the lab got it--I just had it done yesterday at noon so I don't understand that. I was so worried about everything else I didn't even think to ask, so I will when we go back this week to get it redone. I hope his counts are okay but they may show up high. He said there is a sign of infection in his kidneys and he put him on an antibiotic. He thinks we caught it in time. He asked me if he has been vomiting but I said no and if he had a change in appetite and I told him yes. He said the infection can cause toxins to back up into Boof's blood thus making him feel sick. He ate pretty well today so I was glad. I have bronchitis and this was making me feel so much worse, it's all I could think about for a few days now. He's not 100% but it's not too bad so I am grateful and that alone made me feel better.

    <br />Always in my heart sweet bubby bear ~

    I'm glad that it is looking like you have found Buford's problem. Hopefully the antibiotics will be making him feel better in no time.

    Re the clotted blood sample - it sounds like your vet may have used the wrong type of tube to put the blood in. If that is the case just make sure that you don't pay twice.

    Won't someone please feed me!

    I am so glad they found the infection...hope Boof perks up quickly and starts to eat like a lab again. Kisses for your sweet boy!

    When does he go back for his checkup?

    Missing you, my friend.
