    Defaultall paws crossed for willow

    after many years of medication for arthritis my wonderfull 12 year old choccy lab willow has started with kidney failure...at this moment she is in the vets on a drip awaiting the results of her blood test in the morning to see if there is enough improvment for her to come home. she is on a prescription diet of purina nf and im sure that after this vet visit there will be many a more tablet that she will have to take..and as long as she is not suffering i was just wondering if there was any advice anyone could give as this is the first time ive had a dog with this condition....as any dog owner i love her to bits shes not just a dog shes my best friend and i want to do ANYTHING to make however long i have left with her the best that i can do.

    Poor Willow! I sure hope she gets better! It is so hard to watch our babies be sick, we feel so helpless.

    I am sorry to hear this but glad kidney levels have improved. It is very common for a dog with KF to go off food and you have to try different things to get them to eat.

    I have been thru this but did not need IV fluids.

    Here is info on what I did for my girl.

    Kidney Failure | Hearty Pet Talkin' Tails Blog

    you will note I fed eggs in the kibble. I would fry a few eggs and store them in the fridge. She loved the runny yolk in her kibble.

    Good luck with your baby. I pray she handles the KF as well as my Abbey did.
