Hello there. This is Dr.Paul Brazzell. I am sorry that you are having trouble with Murphy.
I can understand how stressful it is for you. I will do my utmost best to help you. Please note that it may take a few minutes to see my reply to your posts. Discussing the case by phone allows me to be more efficient and accurate in assessing the problem. Now, let’s see if we can get this sorted out for you. Is he neutered?
Hi! Is Murphy neutered?
Thank you so much. Is his tummy enlarged? Is he breathing faster or harder?
Thank you so much. Are his gums pink? Is he having any trouble peeing?
Thank you so much.
Does he have any other medical problems? Is he taking any medications?
Thank you for that information. Please give me a few minutes to type my recommendations.
Okay, I am back. I am quite worried about Murphy. I do think that it would be a good idea to have him examined today. We have to worry about an intra-abdominal mass, a colonic mass, Lyjmphosarcoma, a prostate problem(mass), and enlarged intra-abdominal lymph nodes, amongst other things. We will want to have them check his blood and urine and take abdominal X-rays, and possibly ultrasound his abdomen. I am so sorry.
You are so very welcome. Please keep me apprised.
Please feel to reach out to me if you have any more questions regarding this problem or any future concerns. I am here to help!

Hi. Sorry, Just started my day. I will review it and get back to you later this morning.
Thank you so much. Did they check the urine?
Oh, dear. I am sorry that he is struggling. I do not see a urinalysis report. So if they did not run one, it may be a little difficult to interpret since they have been giving him intravenous fluids.
Hmmm. That is odd that it is dark despite all of the fluids. They should run a basic urinalysis, yes. We are looking for Bilirubin.
It is difficult for me to make any recommendations since I do not know his current status. I am so sorry. The doctors there are in a much better position to make those recommendations. I am so sorry.
Okay, that is fair. :)
Happy to help!
