Blood tests are no fun

I have been at the vet this week. It has not been fun. All the other dogs love to go to work with mom, but I avoid it like the plague. I have been drinking and peeing like a racehorse. Mom thought maybe it was a bladder infection again. She took in a urine sample and I did not have an infection. Worse. My pee was so dilute that the specific gravity was almost like water. This means my kidneys can't concentrate the urine. I have kidney damage, my friends. Mom took me with her to work, even though I layed low, and they did blood tests. They did a test for cushings disease, but thankfully I passed that one. The vet wants me to do a water deprivation test to see if I can concentrate urine, so no water all night long. Keep your paws crossed for me, my friends.
