Re: Low Urine Flow

OK, so the vet called Monday (they have him all week while were out of town) and the vet said his urine is the most normal he's ever seen. No infection. BUT He said it is very acidic. So much so that he would like us to add baking soda to his diet to get some calcium bicarb into him. I reminded him ...

Re: Low Urine Flow

Thanks for asking Well, truth be told, I'm waiting until Saturday. He goes to board at the vet Saturday which means a car ride. For Capone, a car ride is the worse stress ever. It is horrific. Which also means that his poop will be horrible. Which also means he will be hyper vigilant for a day of tw...

well that makes a lot of sense. I did not think of that either. When you get so wrapped up in the big stuff, the little stuff escapes me.

Re: Low Urine Flow

A simple urinalysis is a good start. To be 100% sure it is or is not an infection, a urine culture by cystocentesis (use a needle and syringe to get urine directly from the bladder) is the next step. When things are clear-cut in a young healthy dog I will skip it, if there is any question, or if th...

Re: Low Urine Flow

Re: Low Urine Flow

It could be a simple UTI. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you find an easy-to-diagnose, simple-to-fix issue! No kidding! Me too! Poor guy has been through the ringer over the last 6 months. Thanks. You would have thought the 1+ week of Cipro would have taken care of any infection in him. Right ...

Re: Low Urine Flow

Low Urine Flow

...FML... we've gone from over pooping to under peeing. So I need some advice from you all. Capone has had 6 months of difficult poop issues. We finally have a decent handle on it. (1 week and counting) Tomorrow I'm going to need to take him to the vet AGAIN for the other body waste - urine. (As I'm...

Re: Blind Dogs?

I kept thinking there had to be a book, but I'm sure you've looked for them too. this one is from 1998/2004 and has some great reviews, the text appears to focus on life instead of health Living With Blind Dogs: A Resource Book and Training Guide for the Owners of Blind and Low-Vision Dogs, Second E...

Re: Blind Dogs?

since Labs have a huge blindness, cateract problem, what about seeking resources on Lab forums or healthsites? In this area, there are a bunch of veterinary eye specialists. What about contacting them too to see what respources they recommend? From there you could keep digging and see if there are b...

Re: Plop, plop, poop

so have you totally felt like a moron? Well today I do. Yesterday morning, I was fumbling around in the dark feeding the idiots. I accidentally placed Flower's food in front of Capone. So duh, he started eating. In just a couple of seconds I noticed my error and picked up the bowl and swapped them o...

Re: Mast Cell Tumors : Lessons Learned

oh my, you really do have your hands full. I hope the Prozac helps. I understand at Target, a 60/Rx is only $8! Also, you may need to up the dose due to size but your doctor will work you through that. You have to start small in order to get the max effect in the long run. Please let us know what yo...
