Okay so I know I haven't barked in awhile but, Mom hasn't been feeling good and when she isn't feeling good nothing gets done on Dogster. Well to give a quick update before Mom takes us to work with her today...again. Here is what has been going down.
So a few weeks ago I decided I wanted to be a Dalmatian and got all kinds of black spots on my underside. Now that made Mom and Dad worry so they bathed me to make sure it wasn't dirt or anything and Mom says that I had some on my back and on top of my head. Mom's Monty sense started tingling and she made a vet appointment for me to get some blood work done. I have been on steroids for over a year now so she was concerned on how my inside were taking it. So the vet did a full blood panel and urine test and then called Mom yesterday with the results. The vet said I have a healthy liver and kidneys considering that I have cancer so that made Mom relax a little. Then she said that my thyroids are normal but, on the low end of normal and that in 6 months I have to go back for another thyroid test because, by then my thyroids will be bad and I will have hypothyroidism. She told Mommy that spots are symptoms of it but, because it is borderline they can't put me on medicine yet.
Then they talked about my pee. I have no bacteria in my pee which is good but, I have crystals and lots of them which is bad. So they set up an ultra sound for me because, they need to see if I have the early stages of a UTI or if I have stones. They will also be running another urine test. Mom is hoping for just a UTI, Dad isn't so optimistic and thinks it's stones.
Now here is my complaint I can't pee. Mom keeps saying sorry to me but, I can't go until after the ultra sound is done. That isn't fair or right because, when I wake up I have to pee. I just want to pee and Mom keeps saying sorry and to sleep it off until the vet appointment. Well here is the problem I can pee after the appointment it's uncomfortable and bites but, what if I have to do a number two? I can't do a number two on a leash and I won't do a number two anywhere but, in one spot in my yard. So that means I am holding it all day. I want to pee...and go outside.
I say go ahead and pee and poop now so you don't EXPLODE. I have all kinds of black spots on my back, tail and top of my head from my thyroid condition. Maybe I'm a miniture dalmation - BOL.
I hope you and your momma start to feel better.
I held it like a good boy. Mom was so proud of me. Mom also did a dance in the vet's waiting room when she heard I didn't have stones. She was happy about that, though the standard UTI test came back negative too. So I have a lot of crystals in my urine and they don't know why. Have no fear though I gave them a lot of urine to test.
Oh and cause Mom was so happy Missy and I got ice cream.
Poor Monty. I'm so sorry you're not up to par. But glad you don't have a UTI or stones. We're sending you well wishes and hope you continue to remain healthy.
Wow, you're a really good pup. i just woulda peed, BOL!
Whitley it was hard not peeing. I mean towards the end of it I was whining because, I had to go so bad.
Thanks Austin. Mom just wants to know why there are so many crystals in my urine.
