We went in for a re-check and to have blood tests
to check kidney functions and electrolytes. Harry literally
was shaking like a leaf the from the minute we got into
the car until we walked out of the vet's office. He also
wanted no part of the vet or the vet student and his little feet
were flying to try to escape. :wub:
The vet said that Harry has "little white dog syndrome". I thought
oh no.... not something else.... he laughed and said, "He
only wants his mommy." Phew.....
Harry lost 2 pounds
of fluid over the last two weeks!!!!
He went from weighing 9 pounds to weighing 7 pounds.
The doctor said that he is surprised that a dog as
small as Harry could retain that much fluid.
I also mentioned to the vet that Harry is showing signs
of major separation anxiety, which he never did before. He said
that it just could be that he isn't feeling well or it could be
a neurological sign that his liver is not handling protein
well at this point. The blood test results will be back on
Saturday, so we'll see then if anything else is wrong.
Harry's pretty tough and I'm counting on him to be tough for me.
Please keep the good thoughts and prayers coming!!!
Debbie and Harry
