I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Regretfully, being told that it was either a UTI or his bones (which have nothing to do with each other) isn't helpful. Anorexia and walking slowly are important signs but aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. You need to find a vet who will perform a thorough physical exam on Niko including diagnostics in the form of blood and urine tests. X-rays or ultrasound might be recommended predicated upon the results of the exam and blood and urine tests. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

My condolences for your loss of Nilo. I appreciate your taking the time to let me know. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
