    The substitute vet just called. Her kidney levels are high, her phosphorous levels are high. Abbys kidneys are failing.

    I am dropping her off for an ultrasound and more tests tomorrow morning. They are going to keep her for a couple of days to see if they cant get her levels down a little. She said that if we're lucky we can give her a little bit more time with medications but she probably wont live past her first birthday.

    I prayed all night for this to be something, ANYTHING else! I was prepared for expensive surgeries or diets or meds. I didn't prepare myself the this.

    Oh God how am I going to tell my son!!!

    I am so sorry. The choices you have in front of you are very personal. Just know that you have done so far all you could do and so much more.!
    Wish you God speed thru these times and that better days will most surely come.!

    You'll be in my thoughts and prayers even more....I'm so sorry the news was not good, it's one of life's toughest positions to face. For my own peace of mind I would probably take her test results into another office for a second-opinion before I made any big decisions. Abby is still full of life, she'll help you make the tough calls. Once again my sincerest sympathies....

    I did a search for the reasons for kidney failure, has your vet checked into all of these?

    • Complete urinary tract obstruction caused by a stone
    • Rupture of the bladder or urethra
    • Shock, with inadequate blood flow to the kidneys
    • Congestive heart failure with low blood pressure and reduced blood flow to the kidneys
    • Poisoning, especially from antifreeze
    • Lyme disease
    • Leptospirosis

    I know the damage is already done, but I would still need to know.

    Oh no, this just breaks my heart. I am so so so sorry this is happening to you and sweet Abby. I am wishing, hoping and praying things go REALLY REALLY well at the vet tomorrow and it's not as bad as it seems right now. We are here for you!!!!!

    I'm so devastated for you. We love our babies..skin and fur much the same. I was so hoping for better news. You have been such a wonderful mom to Abby. Just give your son what he needs to know for now. We are sooo here for you. I'll continue praying for Abby and your family.

    I am so sorry for the news, definitely not the news we wanted to hear. We will keep you and your sweet Abby in our prayers. I would definitely get a second opinion, just to make sure there is nothing else to be done. Please give her a big hug from us.

    Oh my gawd, how awful for you. I too should want a second opinion. I am sorry, you are all in my thoughts.
