I gave him his saline under skin last night and this am, this am he is eating and walking and chipper.
I will go home and add another 250 cc
The UA displayed crystals not normal more like antifreeze but there is NO way i have looked everywhere high and low it is impossible. I also have 4 other dachshunds.  I explained to the vet and she said can just be kidney failure period.  Moderate Failure.  My question is can bird seed or bird poop cause this as well?   Also am i doing everything i can do ?   Please reply asap.
