Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize but it seems that your original question that you refer to didn't arrive.

If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Do you know if her urea was elevated (since we consider this and creatnine when diagnosing kidney troubles)?

How is she just now?

What signs was she showing?

Did they only treat with fluids? Any medications?
