Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) Is he still bright, alert and responsive? 2) Wehn was the last time he had blood work performed? 3) When did the high volume of water consumption start? 4) What breed of dog is he? 5) What meds is he taking aside from lasix?
If he's bright, alert and wagging his tail it's very unlikely that he's dying.Because of the high volume of water consumption having started recently, blood work and a urinalysis would be wise to rule out bladder infection, kidney disease, diabetes, cushings disease, etc. The hydrocodone and lasix should not be causing this symptom. One diagnosed and treated, your vet may no longer have the leg folding episodes you're seeing which may be due to weakness related to an underlying illness.
