Dogs in Action: Ball Acrobats and Whitey Update

Whitey's update is at the bottom of this post.

*****

Thank you for all paws and prayers sent our way, everybody. We had Whitey admitted at the vetties for two days.

He's still emaciated and dehydrated, so we're taking care of him with round the clock care. He gets force-fed water 4 times a day (because he's not on IV drip), and he eats 3-4 times a day, too. You'd think he's just pretending to be sick because he's grown picky. He hates recovery food and will only eat liver, chicken meat or beef meat-- oh, and cream cheese, too!

The vet says he has Chronic Renal Failure. I'm still researching on ways to manage it. We're now on kidney care and iron supplements, diuretics, and Doxycycline. I'll be talking about this another time, though. 

For those who's dealt with kidney failure before, could you share your experiences with us.

  4. But Cream Cheese is the BEST medicine (in our opinion) We didn't know about Whitey...our computer has been a pest for awhile. So we're sending POTP to him.
