Q. My weaner dog is not eating vet said she isn t going to get any better her kidneys are failing
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS
A. Kidney failure is a very sever and non reversible disease. In some cases you can succeed slowing down the progression of the disease with special diets, meds and supplements but at the end of the day it's all about quality of life, you have to ask yourself: is she happy or is she suffering? is she eating properly? kidney failure is a terminal disease, in some cases it progresses fast, in other it can take years to get to a final stage. Try to keep her as comfortable as possible until you judge she is suffering too much.
A. I am sorry to hear this. I would recommend you enjoy the time you have have together as sadly her days are coming to an end. It is best to think about the quality of her life and know that you may be forced to make a very hard decision. For now, follow your vets advice and keep her comfortable.
