Customer Question
my dog pumpkin is very...
my dog pumpkin is very sick last week she was so bad that I was going to put her down last Friday. she was not eating walking peeing blood and just looked out of it .she is being treated for kidney problems . I took her to the vet on tues. and had her looked at before I made my decision . The doctor ask why do I think it was her kindey her blood work has always been perfected and the last time I had it done was 2 months ago. I told them you guys told me she did because she was leaking protein. I did not do blood work this time because it is 300 dollars and what was the point she is a 13 1/2 old golden . he did find something wrong with her heart this time he did a EKG and it show some abnormal beat once in awhile. She has always had a problem with UTI her whole life so I gave them a urine sample and gave her some fluids , antibiotic shot that would last 2 weeks because she was not eating agreed to treat it as a UTI and see if that would make her better . she started to get better where she was walking again eating food ( only lunchmeat Hormel ham ) and she was interacting with family and the 3 other dogs again but last night she did not keep her dinner down and yellow bile came up. I gave her a little bit a ham later and she kept it down .
I gave her some ham this morning and she did alright but tonight I gave her about 1/4lbs of ham then she drank water and within 5 min she threw it all up and with all the water with a yellow tint to it. I washed off the ham and see if she was still hungry but in smaller bites and she ate it like she was still hungry . That was over a hour ago and she has kept it down. So I am at a lost because if she did not feel well I think she would not feel like eating. I know when she was younger and she got super hungry she would puke up that yellow bile. pumpkin is also on meds for incontinence.
