    My four year old English Bulldog was diagnosed with kidney failure in January. You need to find out what caused it and how much of the kidney is destroyed and if it's both kidneys.

    I doubt the yellow mucus has anything to do with any sort of kidney issue. Please post results of testing. There may or may not be anything you can do to help with this situation. I’m hoping it’s just a UTI and he can quickly recover and move on with the good life.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    As of right now test came back that it’s not leptospirosis so they are keeping him on antibiotics and fluids to flush his kidneys out to see how he does..the yellow mucus they say can be from the loose tooth and a decayed tooth which we hoping might be a lot of the problem with not eating

    Hope he's doing better. I would hope they would have pulled the decayed tooth and loose tooth out ! Try to find out if he has kidney or bladder stones on top of a kidney infection, and if so, he may also need a special diet or supplement to keep urine pH in right range, or even surgery to get stones out. Hopefully with antibiotics for the teeth and possibly the urinary tract infection if he has one, he will recover soon. Keep us in the loop with what caused the kidney failure !

    I'm having trouble responding to your message. My four year old bully was diagnosed with an antibiotic resistant bladder infection that caused her to go into acute renal failure. Before she was diagnosed, she started throwing up randomly, was drinking alot of water, peeing alot, had no energy. She spent a week at the vet's. When she came home, she was in hospice care. They didn't know how much time she had left. I treated her because she was eating, had energy and was fighting. As long as she fought, I would treat her. She received sub q fluids twice a day, ate special dog food and then home made dog food, had alot of meds. She passed away in March. A few days before she passed, she stopped eating, had no energy, seemed very distant and was getting nose bleeds. It was very hard mentally, physically and financially taking care of her the last two months of her life. I work from home so I was able to spend alot of time with her before she died. I never hesitated to treat her. As long as she fought, I would treat her. And she was young. Did they say what caused the kidney failure?

    I'm so very sorry for your loss of your beloved girl.
    And for all that the two of you went thru as well.
    I went thru similar symptoms and situation with my
    bully girl, finally dx'ed with Cushing's Disease. She also
    fought a good fight (it's progressive) and I'm retired so
    was home with her. WE SLEPT TOGETHER ON A MATTRESS
    on the floor when she couldn't get up on sofa or my bed.
    Finally the time came when Cami didn't rally and the light
    was gone from her beautiful eyes. I PUT HER TO SLEEP IN FEB,
    HER VET & STAFF CRIED WITH ME, SHE WAS LOVED BY ALL
    WHO MET HER.

    I SEND PRAYERS FOR YOUR COMFORT & PEACE & BULLY HUGS.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    As of right now they have not took the lose tooth out but did find out it is not kidney stones but we are waiting on blood work result tomorrow.its looking more like a uti and a cold or a respiratory infection..when I went to see him today his skin looks better and he was moving more then he has been but still not to sure what caused this situation..all the test for the worst case has been ruled out and hopefully if all goes well he will come home tomorrow if he starts eating
