He is at the clinic for 2-3 days and I cannot tell you how much I miss having him here at home. I have a shirt of my own and some of his toys and a small blanket to bring tomorrow so he will have some of home while he is there. Even the 2 year old is asking, "Doggie?"
She thinks based on his numbers from the prior tests and what I told her, he does have kidney failure. He will get his kidneys "flushed" and an IV plus they are doing the blood and urine tests over. She said they will test for Leptoscirosis (sp?) and some other general tests just to see exactly what is going on. She said in some dogs, it works well and in others, especially ones that are Boof's age (12), they only give them a few months. Well, I didn't want to hear that and I certainly didn't expect to hear months but I don't believe it for my boy. He was doing better the last few days and alot better than he has been today. Yes, I am scared but also feeling confident enough that he is going to come home feeling much better and things will be different for him then. I know with prayers and love he can pull through.
He will be on the K/D and a low protein diet when he comes home. I hope he eats while he is there. He is not used to being away from home but at my parents' house so I hope he doesn't experience any doggie depression. I'll be there every day to visit until he comes home.
Thank you all for your prayers, information and support! Please keep the prayers coming for Buford, I need my baby to stick around!
<br />Always in my heart sweet bubby bear ~
Sorry to hear this. Prayers for your boy on the way. Let us know how he does.
Bernadette, just saw your update. I know how much you miss him. :'( It is so hard to be without them but especially when they are not feeling good. Sounds like he is in good hands though.
Will continue sending prayers your way and keep fingers crossed that he is home and feeling better real soon.
Missing you, my friend.
