You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. His symptoms indicate severe kidney failure and the need to hospitalize him on IV fluids for a minumum of 72 hours of diuresis (intensive fluid therapy to see if his kidneys can be encouraged to flush out toxins and then stabilize at a more healthy state). The benazepril needs to be discontinued at this time as it can worsen renal failure.

Can you upload a copy of his latest test results to our conversation? I understand that you might not have a copy at home but your vet can give you one which you could then scan into your computer and give me the link to the file or you can photograph the pages and upload them by means of the paperclip icon above your message box (if such an icon exists) or by using an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can review these tests.
