If you have followed my diaries, you know that I am the sensitive one of the canine family members, and I'm very close to my mom. Mom has no been doing well this week because my dog brother, Zane, has been at the hospital all week and is still there. He has some odd symptoms that don't make sense, so the doctors haven't gotten a diagnosis yet. Mom has been on a stress roller coaster. She works at the vet clinic, has been monitoring his urine since Monday, keeping records, doing daily BUN checks. Today, Zane is undergoing a bile acids test and a leptospirosis titer. He had a urine test yesterday that said he was even more proteinuric than before, even with antibiotic treatment. He has been tested for Cushings Disease, undergone a water deprivation test, ultrasounds, x-rays, and still nothing. She comes home from work emotionally spent, and even cried Tuesday night. I tried my best to comfort her, but I had rolled in something and my neck was dirty and unappealing. But, mom knew I was worried about her. I hope Zane gets treatment so that mom can feel better.
