Customer Question
Our sealyham terrier, Bronwyn...

Our sealyham terrier, Bronwyn, has woken up, can' walk, has trouble standing but can stand once helped. Noticed her gums are faded pink (this happened to another of our dogs some year ago. Is it kidney failure?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

Hard to see with all the fur. She was favouring her front right. When I touch it she frets

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Bronwyn?

She is 5

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bronwyn?

She may have eaten sheep or cat droppings. Yesterday she was on the other side of the fence so had crawled underneath. I thought she may have bruised her back?

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Bronwyn. Once she is standing, can she walk normally?

Gums that are more pale than normal can be from many things: internal bleeding, autoimmune disease, infections, internal organ disease (liver, kidney, pancreas).

She is young for kidney disease. If she bruised her back, that might account for her having trouble standing, but not for the pale gums.
