    Default Just found Lola has one kidney.

    Our little girl has been battling a UTI infection for almost three weeks while being on antibiotics. Our vet recommended we take her to a specialist. Turns out she only has one kidney based on the sonogram results. She came with a one year health guarantee so now we have to talk to the breeder. I feel so bad for her, looking for advice as to what our expectations from the breeder should be? Refund health coverage? Any advice would be appreciated.

    I have no experience with this, sorry. But curious, did the vet say she would be okay? Will she live a normal life? She is definitely the cutest ever!!! Sweet baby.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    So sorry to hear that, poor baby girl. It depends on what the contract says, most will just want to give you another pup and take her away, and some may help with the vet bills, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one, as most won't stand behind their pups, and some may offer you some of your money back if you keep her, so I would talk to the breeder and see what they have to say.

    The specialist didn't seem too worried??? He was more concerned about getting the UTI resolved, so it doesn't affect her one kidney.

    Did you discuss the quality of life of a dog with one kidney? humans can live quite well with just one kidney but I'm not familiar with how this situation affects dogs.

    My GF took her to the specialist since I'm out of town for work. She was shocked and upset, she is going to call the doctor tomorrow to discuss the situation more. He didn't seem too concerned, but its not his baby.

    I agree with @cali baker on this one… many people live w/only one kidney, I would suspect that dogs can too. I would imagine that she may be on a special diet though… keep us posted!!!

    Amen, it's not his baby. I hope you find some peace of mind with this situation and it all works out. Please keep us posted.

    Wow that's a shock to find out. Hopefully there will be some kind of one monetary refund or some health coverage as you say. If humans can live normal lives with one I don't see why a dog couldn't.
