Please help, this dog is our child
Kona, 23 month old female American Bulldog in perfect health, 78 pounds
Thursday April 2, she gets a hold of a prescription bottle belonging to a house guest
House guest says there was only about 10 ibuprofen pills
Vet and Animal poison control said it shouldn’t be a problem; to just observe her
1 to 2 hours later she looks really, really lethargic
Wife takes her to the vet
Vet believes something else might have been in the bottle
Wife questions the house guest in anger and admits there might have been a sliver or half a Xanax along with the ibuprofen
Vet induces vomiting, gives her activated charcoal, and IV fluids
Vet tells us that they collected a urine sample that had some blood in it, it could be they hit a blood vessel while extracting the urine or it could be something else
Vet says to monitor and collect urine samples. Blood in urine should be gone by morning
Vet places fluids in under her outer skin and we take her home that evening
Vet gives her two prescriptions:
Urine samples are collected that same evening and night by us, urine is now clear, no blood
The next day (Friday) she begins drinking large amounts of water and asks us to let her out frequently to urinate throughout the day. (about every 30-45 minutes)
Little drops of urine are noticed wherever she lays
That night (Friday) while sleeping she cannot control urine output and wets the bed (she has not peed in the house since she was 9 weeks old)
Saturday and Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights same thing, wets the location she is sleeping in and continues to urinate frequently throughout the day and drinking a lot of water
On Wednesday we go back to the vet.
Vet takes urine and blood samples and send them out to a lab
Thursday (4/9) afternoon vet gets the results and says she might have some kidney damage or even kidney failure.
Vet says 2 days of kidney flush might help
We do not think this specific vet is very knowledgeable, any ideas?
