Some of you know I was set to adopt a new puppy tomorrow.
Over the weekend my boy Dexter ( a Rat Terrier) began vomiting and not eating or drinking. He would just lie in his bed and shake and not even eat treats. Concerned, I took him to the emergency vet and they told me he has chronic kidney disease. He had a BUN level as high as their equipment could measure (over 140).
He is now in the hospital as I write this getting fluids.
I am supposed to take him to my regular Vet Tuesday for a prognosis and see if I am going to get to spend any more time with my sweet boy.
Does anyone else here with a dog have any knowledge of this disease? I know Cathy mentioned something in my Shepherd thread....
