My Dog has Addison's Disease

Hey Guys!

I hope all is going well with you.  Usually Saturday morning's I am out and about but not today.  My dog hasn't been feeling well this week and I took her to the vet yesterday morning for some blood work.

Two years ago she was diagnosed with Addison's disease.  The vet put her on medication and for almost two years she was doing fine.  She went into crises in November and spent a day at the vet on IV fluids.  She was dehydrated.  She recovered from that and seemed to be doing well.

The last couple months she would go through phases of not wanting to eat.  The vet did some more blood work and had to adjust her medication for the Addison's.  She was starting to go into crises again but I was able to recognize the signs and got it in time.  The adjustment in the medication helped her and she was doing really well.

The last week she hasn't been herself and not really eating.  So I took her in for blood work like I mentioned above.  This time it's her kidney's.  I forget exactly what the vet said it was but the levels of something in her kidney's is too high causing her to feel nauseated thus causing her not eating.  This weekend I have a different food for her to eat.  The vet is hoping that we can get her interested in food again and bring the levels down and get her hydrated again without having to give her more medication.  I'm happy to say that she ate her breakfast and dinner yesterday.  This morning she ate all her breakfast.  She is sleeping right now but that's okay.  I'm hoping that will help her too to get better.

I wanted to do a blog today just about what has been going on in my life.  That way you can see that I am a real person dealing with real problems.

Have a wonderful day!

Until next time ....
