My beloved Ruby was diagnosed with kidney failure yesterday. She is mixed breed, mostly staffie with collie lurcher, and she was spayed after her first heat at 6 months old. She has lost a lot of weight, been drinking and peeing excessively, with some bed wetting at night but not during the day, and had reduced appetite. She had full bloods and urinalyis and it's definitely kidney failure. Vet reckons almost certainly just age-related but could be a tumour - I'm not going to put her through scans because it wouldn't change the treatment plan. Now she's on a specialist low protein diet (since dinner yesterday) her appetite has improved significantly. She is wolfing it down! Tomorrow we're going to see a vet to discuss fluid therapy (recommended by our usual vet, but they're unable to do it themselves). She's ok more or less in herself, still very playful and quite happy as far as I can tell. I'm just wondering if anyone here has any experience of kidney failure in dogs and has any tips or things to share to help me know what to expect and how best to support her over the coming weeks/months. Thank you.
