Saturday update: Roo is holding his own. He is off the IV and just getting fluids under the skin. He is a bit dehydrated today, but in pretty good spirits. He mostly sleeps but has been silly and wagging when he's been up. That's much better compared to crying and shaking.

Roo has been fighting an unexplanable drop in his Sodium and Chloride for the past month. He has had mild decreases in these levels since last spring, but it was never a problem. Initially we were told it was due to his kidneys failing. Upon furthing testing, even Tufts vet school isn't sure what is causing his problems. One of their thoughts was low aldosterone levels, so we elected to treat as if this is the problem. Having only low aldosterone and normal cortisol is so rare in a dog there is pretty much nothing about it in the literature. Our "last ditch" is treating Roo for this deficiency.

Roo also has congenital diabetes insipidus (central and nephrogenic), mineralized kidneys, kidney stones, bladder stones, and chronic urinary and kidney infections. We're trying not to be selfish about keeping him alive...but also trying to give him every chance at a good life.

So happy to hear Roo is in better spirits today. I don't think your selfish in trying to keep him alive....I would do exactly the same thing your doing. Don't give up and when you do you will then know its time. Prayers for you to find answers so he can feel good again. Hugs to you and Roo.
