my poor boy

so, in a previous thread, i mentioned my dog is a bit...accident prone. well, last night he managed to injure the hip that *wasn't* giving him problems before. we think he overextended when going around a turn (probably while chasing one of my moron cats). after 3 xrays, a whole mess of painkillers, exploding butt in my backseat, and a bad case of the runs once i got him *out* of the car, my poor boy is all tucked in on the couch.

i guess he missed his favorite vet tech. sigh. it's okay, Deckard, i didn't need that money for Christmas presents or anything...

on the upside, his hips look fantastic according to the vet. yay?

dang dog. at least he'll start feeling better soon.

or some of us are just clumsy oafs.

Hugz to Deckard!

Ouch! That sounds awful! Hope he mends soon, poor boy.

I'm accident prone too. I broke 2 toes and fractured my foot on Thanksgiving day walking from my bathroom to my bedroom to pack a suitcase for my trip home. I caught the corner baseboard of a wall as I was speedily walking by. I've had to sit out agility training for 2 weeks now. Stupid walls.

man, this poor dog.

we stopped the drugs completely when he showed little interest in eating on Sunday. since then it's been a struggle to get food in him, but he was drinking without any problems so we didn't worry too much. we checked in with the vet on Monday and she agreed that if he was drinking that we shouldn't worry TOO much, and she instructed us to bring him in on Friday if there wasn't a marked change in his desire to eat. today, though, he showed little interest in drinking and no interest in food. back to the vet at noon, courtesy "grandma," who has the day off today.

i do have a weird question...he's been acting like he has acid reflux/GERD and his breath went from normal to OH GOD STOP POINTING YOUR FACE AT ME. any ideas what this might be or what might have caused it? i'm certain this is why he isn't really thrilled about eating, just wondering if anyone's seen this before.

Could he have a bad tooth? Could he have eaten a sock or something that would cause a blockage? Just trying to come up with things for the poor guy.

well, ****. he's in kidney failure. hoping we got him there in time. vet's keeping him overnight, and i'm heading there now to find out more details.

for informational purposes, he was on Tramadol and Rimadyl for his strain. we (boyfriend, breeder, and i) are thinking that may have been the culprit.

those of you who have experience with a dog that has survived...assuming Deckard survives this, what will we have to do for him going forward? food changes? need help here. i can't think well enough to search the internet for the information i need.

When Zeus was 15 his kidney value were off and my vet put him on K/D. Its a prescription food. I don't know if that is the right thing for you since Zeus's problem was more his age but I just wanted to throw that out there.
He wasn't on any prednisone while he was given rimadyl was he?

I am so sorry you are going through this!

I don't have experience with ARF (acute renal failure), just with CRF (chronic renal failure), which is an entirely different deal.

My understanding of ARF is that if the dog survives initially it will take some pretty intense veterinary care, it could be days to weeks to stabilize the animal- then possibly sub-Q fluids and careful blood monitoring once you return home.

If you make it past the first 6-8 wks then recovery CAN be complete- in that no further management is necessary. OR, you can wind up with a pet with CRF who will require special diet & management..

Nsaids, like Rimadyl, have ARF as a possible side effect so I think it is the likely cause. Hopefully that will mean it is a less serious incidence (the ones I am familiar with are usually poisoning cases).

Fingers & paws crossed that he makes a full recovery!!!

we haven't heard from the vet this morning, and are going over there at noon. this is the sort of vet office that calls to check up on sick animals, and no one's eyes were dry when we brought him in yesterday. so...no news this morning is good news, right?

i do have a weird question...he's been acting like he has acid reflux/GERD and his breath went from normal to OH GOD STOP POINTING YOUR FACE AT ME. any ideas what this might be or what might have caused it? i'm certain this is why he isn't really thrilled about eating, just wondering if anyone's seen this before.
HOW many days did he go without eating food?

nope. like i said, tramadol and rimadyl. he's been on rimadyl before, but not while on anything else, and this time they gave him the chewable instead of the tablet.

Hugs and good luck to deckard! Me and mabel send prayers and dober kisses!

It may not be the cause, though it seems you think it likely, but this is why I'm not a big doggy pain meds fan...I've heard and seen more about side effects and issues than makes it worth it for me. :/
