Customer Question

My dog was diagnosed with Kidney failure, however, she seem to want to eat lately, but can't. She can't get the food in her mouth and when she does...it falls out. She has been on lR IV fluids under the skin, 2 antibiotics, 2 anti hypertensives, omeprazole, and revering....her last creatinine was 5.5. Down from 6.9. It gets rechecked Saturday. But I honestly feel like something is being missed...because she wants food, she just can't eat it.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Are there any sores, ulcers, or redness in her mouth?

Any tarter, loosening, or discoloration of her teeth?

Can she open and close her mouth all the way without discomfort?
