Yes, they did and yes she has addisons as well. It all started about 1 year ago. She started with a severe skin infection. then was diagnosed with addison and kidney failure. then had to remove both eyes to glaucoma.
By the way Tinker is 16. I accidently put 10. The last time she was in the ICU for a week the gave her carafate, cerenia injections, flagyl 5 day of fluid therapy, 2 blood chemistry test and urinalysis. After trying everything else we started her on the steriods and now she is back to the same problem. All of this was with September 15 - 20. They have said that addison and kidney failure are very similar. After the kidney flush she did so well. Almost like a young girl again. I am concerned with her quality of life. I want her to have the best life possible. I wonder if it is time to let her go.
You were so sure that Tinker's Addison was her problem. You did not address my concern about her kidney failure. On Wednesday the 16th, she went into complete failure and passed. Address the concerns of people who have gone to the extremes of taking care of her vet.
