My dog's chest is trembling and was just recently diagnosed with high creatine, bun and phosphorus ( i have the numbers if you want them). Otherwise all her other numbers are in the normal range. She is 13. A few months ago she went after 2 coyotes and they attacked her -- only superficial wounds and a few stitches. After this trauma her appetite and energy and over-all health and well being greatly fell so I took her in to the vet who diagnosed her with kidney failure. Her numbers were somewhat high in April I am told ( i have those too) and then even higher in August. I have been successful in returning her somewhat to her normal happy and sweet energetic self with daily walks and changing her food to either home made ( organic) or of higher quality lean protein and fruit and vegetable dog food companies....no more kibble
-- although this pooch was raised mostly on Natural Balance Organic Formula and in later years Orijen Senior formula. How can I tell if she is in pain or worse congestive heart failure
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is your dog bleeding
JA: Phew. What is the dog's name?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Zoey?
Customer: I still don't know what is the cause of her kidney issues as the obvious offenders have been ruled out -- i.e., leptospirosis, lyme
. I suspect a lifetime of frontline flea/tick and routine vaccinations
might have put her in toxic
overload besides long term dehydration from kibble from the above companies. Of course I didn't know any of this until I started my own recent research and have learned all about this stuff and how feeding
your dog human grade whole food and/or the raw
ancestral diet from high quality sources is the way to go. What do you think?
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: Well I just read some of your responses to the same question asked 3 years ago ( that is how I found this site by using the search words "dogs trembling kidney disease" -- and I hope and pray that it is not anything I need to rush her to the emergency room for! We are giving her subcutaneous 300 ml fluids every other day too.
