Jackie, you and Roo have been and continue to be in my prayers every day. He is blessed to have you as his Mommy. Hugs for both of you.

Default Keeping Roo in thoughts and prayers

Originally Posted by jmm View Post
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.
I'm glad to hear Roo is feeling much better and is in better spirits. After reading this update I find it hard to contain the tears and also get me to think of how our boy Biscuit is fighting for his chance as well.

Roo is truely a warrior when it come to dealing with all of these health issues and still manage to be in great spirits! Sending hugs and loves to both you and Roo!
