    You are not losing her, we are all going to help you fight for her life. I would suggest seeing a specialist Vet. Are there ones close to you?

    Make a post here ***Link Deleted***
    Ask for any members w. dogs that have kidney problems. Ask for testimonials and ask for directions. I feed raw but do not know enough about proteins and phosphorus to assist you. I'm so sorry to hear about your baby, and can only imagine the fear and confusion you are going through. We are all here for you. You'll be in my thoughts tonight.

    @Twice i havent totally researched it but have you looked into the honest kitchen and sojos dehydrated foods. they are low protein and im not sure bout phosphorus but i think its low to. the honest kitchen has a few grain free versions low in protein. worth looking at.

    A kidney specialist or a bulldog specialist?

    The list of recommended vets at the top of the page shows that the only vet in NJ is in Hainsport. That's about 2 hours from me. I contacted the Bulldog Club of America and they have 4 others in NJ. One of them is only about 20 minutes from here. I plan on taking her to the vet in the morning. Let them ultrasound her abdomen to see what state her kidneys are actually in. This will tell us if it's congenital or not. It should also tell us how much time they expect her to have. They will run a more complete blood panel to get exact levels of "something" (my head was swimming by this point in the conversation, I didn't write that part down). They will also give her IV fluids for a day or 2 to flush out her system. That plus some medication might give her a little more time. My heart was broken by that point. I couldn't understand anything else that she said. When I go there in person tomorrow morning I will get more answers. This was such an incredibly hard conversation to have by telephone.

    Hit submit too soon

    I'm hoping to take the results of all of these tests to another doctor for a second opinion. There's not much sense in running them all twice. Unless there's a reason that I'm not able to think of?

    @Twice, I would say Kidney specialist. We have a specialty group here in town. It consists of an Internal Medicine Vet, Oncologist, Cardiologist and Dermatologist...You might have the same kind of group there.

    I need to thank all of you SO much for your help and support in all of this. I honestly think I would have lost my mind by now without it.
