Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I am sorry too hear you are worried about Girl. I am very worried when a dog goes this long without eating, and especially in an older dog. This could be a sign of serious illness: liver disease, kidney disease, or cancer.

The best thing would be to have a veterinarian examine her as soon as possible.

If you lift her lip to look at her gums, are they pink or pale?

How is your dog doing? I hope you were able to see my response.

Please let me know if I can answer any other questions.

She died 2 days ago.the last she had these symtems.it was a uti..do you think with the proper medicine she would have lived
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that. My sincere condolences.

If the uti had caused kidney failure, then nothing would have helped her. Do you happen to know if blood tests were done to check her kidney function?

Was she spayed?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
we spayed and no test
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

For a UTI to cause death is not common; I suspect she had kidney failure, especially if she was 15 years old. If she did, there was nothing you could have done.

I am so sorry you lost her; I lost my dog earlier this year and my heart is still broken. My sincere condolences.

Please let me know if this is helpful and what other questions you have.
