Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your Sheltie. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

What is 50, and now 58? Is that her BUN, or some other number? If that is her BUN, what is her creatinine?

Is she on medication for her blood pressure, or a special diet for her kidneys?
