Thanks for the additional info. I wanted to be sure that nothing else could be contributing to his symptoms.It will take me about 15 minutes to type out a response for you. You're welcome to stand by, if you like, or an email will be sent letting you know I've responded.
The Di Trim that Buddy is taking has quite a few common concerns when it comes to symptoms that follow medication. In regards ***** ***** kidneys, yes. We can see that the ingredients in the medication can cause acidification and cause crystals to form in the urine which may cause quite a bit of discomfort.Another medical concern that we see, although very rarely, is that some dogs develop polyarthritis which may explain the stiffness you're seeing and the tenderness in his paws.Due to his symptoms, I would highly recommend contacting your vet tomorrow. In most cases of problems being caused by a medication of choice, the vet will want to perform a recheck exam to see if the symptoms need to be treated before progressing on to another medication.If I can help answer any other questions you have, please let me know.If my answer has helped you, please take the time today to leave positive feedback for me.
