my 15 yr old dachshund was diagnosed with kidney failure last night, he is on 250cc X2 a day sub Q. Anti nausea and appti increase meds.
He lab results
Urine Specific Gravity 1.015
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.
