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.

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.

Thank you!! He came home today and his breathing is better and discharge from his knose has stopped..he is moving around more and just a few mins ago he drink just a lil bit of water but still no food and hoping that’s because of the mess they gave him..the vet says they want to wait and see him again in 2weeks To see how he is doing after taking all the mess but my wife is going to take him to another vet that was recommended to us for a second opinion tomorrow..but for the most part we are noticing a change in him for the good
