    Unfortunately I have nothing to add, except my prayers. Hope all turns out for the best.

    Default UPDATE! Re: Kidney Failure!!!!

    My little Mac (who was named after Fleetwood Mac, my daughter is a big fan) is going down hill. Forgive me, for I'm not really sure how else to update my thread. I just got off the phone with the Doctor and she said the kidneys are continuing to fail. We will have to say good-bye to her tomorrow. This is actually my daughters dog. She moved to California a couple of weeks ago and left her with me so that I could take care of her while she gets her self established. My daughter can not get here until 9 am tomorrow. They will have a few hours together before we will have to let her go. I can not believe this has happened to our baby girl. She has brought more joy to our family in her short time she's been with us. Please pray for us. We need strength to get us through this difficult time.
    Also, I appreciate all the information everyone has been sending my way and I have tried to respond to all of them. How I wish I had known about you guys a few moths ago.

    Thanks again,
    Elena

    I'm truly in tears now...I'm so, so sorry! Life is very unfair & cruel
    at times. This is one of them, can't imagine how much all of you are
    suffering

    All of us here love these bullies (and our other pets) as much as any
    person (sometimes more). Losing them is agony and takes a very
    long time to recover but never forget them. Please know you are
    welcome to stay and write about your loss and your feelings, share
    pics & stories about Mac. Our memorials here are so beautiful and
    touch all of us. I pray your daughter has safe travel here and just
    sad she has to deal with this tragedy while starting a new job & move.
    My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family, am hoping for a
    miracle here.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    @etmaine62 So sorry for this, but please take her to a good bully vet and have them x-ray her for an obstruction. Classic signs of it. We had a friend of ours who had a bully vomiting and occasional diarrhea, and their vet did some test and told them she was in renal failure, gave them some meds and told them to watch her the weekend and bring her back the following Monday for more test. I told them that was B.S. and that they needed to take her to our vet. She had head tremors that afternoon which was a Friday. I went and picked her up, and took her to our vet. I told him what she was doing and he said it's an obstruction. He did an x-ray and could barely see a shadow, but he said there it is. He did emergency surgery on her that day and found the object that was causing her the problem. He said if he had not done the surgery, she would not have lasted the weekend. So please get a second opinion and ask them about an obstruction, it may save her life.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    This was a second opinion. They did x-rays, ultrasound and a biopsy. This vet has had 35 years of working on English Bulldogs and owned some himself. I do trust that he and his associates have tried everything they can do to save her. Thanks for your response and your right a second opinion is always best along with making sure they have English Bulldog knowledge.

    Dear Elena, sounds as if you've done due diligence & all you could do
    for Mac. If she does go to the bridge, she'll be in great company with
    all our bullies gone before their time too. It hurts worse to lose her
    this young, can you post a pic of Mac?

    Unfortunately I am of no help here but will be keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I'm so sad reading this..a few years ago our cat Dash started having seizures and his liver failed, he was only 3 so we tried everything to save him but the seizures were so bad after the third day at the animal hospital they told me it was time to say goodbye..I still miss him..my heart goes out to you and your daughter and poor baby Mac.
