Bow's Diagnosis

Bow's BUN and Creatinine levels are getting higher now with his kidney failure. His phosphorous levels are higher, and so we have now stopped his Calcitriol intake because it can only be given when certain readings are still fairly normal. He also has some blood in his urine, so he is back on auntie-bye-otiks for awhile. And now he is getting a Vitamin B12 shot weekly sub-q in addition to his regular sub-q fluids. We're trying him back on the original appetite stimulant to see how he handles it for awhile. Just trying different things to get his wobbliness reduced.

So that is where we are.
