Sent by Cdeleon0401 19 minutes
Pogo 14yrs 8lbs chiuhuahua in Renal Failure. I am trying to join the group. I can see post but no option to join. I stayed up till 5am reading all your articles on your website. Do you have advice for diahrea/ constipation. Yesterday he ate more than usual. Hamburger meat, brown rice, cabbage (very little) zucchini, chicken heart (in small amount) and a little broccoli. He waa also given a about a table spoon of organic plain yogurt w/ Probiotic added. He ate this mix in 4 small portions through the day. Mid afternoon he began squatting but no poop would come out. Then he began scooting all night. At night he had diahrea 2x this morning 1x his butt is a little raw from the scooting now. I applied a butt paste for babies. He is on sub q's 300 cc today is day 4, tomorrow we get new blood work to see if levels dropped. He also has heart disease and is taking Vetmedin 2x a day ( it was 1x for over a year and he did very well) sildenifil 2x (This was also 1x) he was on Lasix 1x for over a year as well but after a recent episode the vet up all heart meds to 2x which had a very negative effect on kidney. After 2 1/2 weeks of the upped dosage his BUN went up by 100 from low 40's. No more lasix or benzapril. He is eating more in the latter part of the day than the morning, mornings are tough. He was prescribed omeprzol 2x a day for the stomach but didn't react well when given, he coughed and seemed to have a rough time getting the liquid down. I am not as wanting to continue with it. I read your info on this type of med as well. He is drinking water. Please advise.
