I posted awhile back that Shelby was having some issues, drinking a lot, protein in her urine etc. trying to find out why. Cushing’s was negative, all blood work was good..... Well we have some answers. She has high blood pressure. The 1st medication didn’t bring it down so we have made some changes and go back in a month. The vet feels it is one of 2 things. The high blood pressure would cause her kidneys to excrete protein so we have to get that under control. Or she has very early kidney disease (not impacting her blood work) which is causing the high blood pressure. So we need to get her BP under control and possibly put her on a kidney diet. We will know more in a month. But I must say since she has been on the BP meds she has been acting like a puppy again! Playing like crazy, very happy and energetic. Vet says this is good news, she says that as their BP comes down she sees the dogs become energetic and playful again! So I’m hoping we are on the right track.
