Default Kidney Problems

Sonja has kidney problems!!!

She is at the vet's right now getting some lumps removed and checked to see if they are benign or not. Then I get a call from the vet just before her scheduled surgery saying that her urine and blood work showed a failing kidney.

Does anybody here have to deal with this sort of thing? Any diet suggestions, lifestyle changes that needed to be done?

I just got the call back from the vet and her lumps are NOT cancerous!!!!

Her surgery went very well with no complications at all. I could hear the poor girl crying in the background. They said that she was missing me a lot when I left her there in the morning. But she is already walking around and she went out for a short walk with the staff. They said she is a very well-behaved and loving big girl!!

The vet will be getting her bloodwork results tomorrow, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it won't be too bad regarding her kidneys.

on the lumps

On the kidney news


DogAware has a great section on kidney
Kidney Disease

There is also the Yahoo Kidney group that I hear can be very helpful
K9KIDNEYS : for owners of dogs with Kidney Disease

I am afraid of kidney problems myself. FIngers cross she does not have to deal with this.
