also, do you notice any yellowing of the eyes or when you open the dogs mouth do you smell a pneumonia type smell?

If you can get a urine sample, anyone can send samples to a lab IE: Omega and pay the bill cash for results. If you have an extra 20.00 send a sample of urine asking for a citrated plasma bio. If it comes back positive for aflatoxin email these people the results right away, [email protected]. Your bills might be covered by a Student University. Maybe this will help you.

You can also get a urinalysis done by TVMDL (Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostics Labratory).

http://tvmdlweb.tamu.edu/

Then go to Tests and do a search for Urinalysis. It's like $10 but will take a couple of days to get there. They e-mail you your results though so you get those almost instantly.

The test itself takes about 20 minutes to run, most of which is simply centrifuging the sample.

Sadly, I get the feeling we are all peeing up a rope here. The animal is dying a horrendous death.

Your mom would never put down her dog, but she would just watch it suffer like this? This doesn't make any sense to me. If your mom is not letting her dog get medical attention and she refuses to give it to a humane society, I think the dog needs to be put down. This dog is suffering and it'll only get worse if it doesn't get seen by the vet. This is really a sad, sad story.

It probably would be.... but again it's not HER dog.

You might want to read the entire thread to get the whole story. I have repeated myself as to why her dog can absolutely NOT be rehomed. Her dog would be put to death by any dog shelter before irresponsibly placing her in another home.

At the risk of sounding like a complete @ss, I think that may be preferable to dying of poisoning like it is.

IS THIS DOG SPAYED??
My mom did not get her dog spayed, because both of my parents planned on breeding her. Thank god it never worked. When she comes into heat its not a full heat anymore. She bleeds a teeny tiny bit and she doesnt swell as much as she used to. Why? I have no idea. She was purchased at a nasty pet shop in our local mall. She is also going blind and only 5 years old. If you were to see her, you would think that she is at least 10.
