today i took lizzy to for her semi annual veterinary visit. specimens / samples in hand. we checked in for the appointment. a long time family friend came with us. this visit took longer than in the past. lizzy’s results from the samples came back:
ph 9 – urine
urogenital – urinary tract system
sg 1.050 – dilute solute-free specific gravity urine
odor – urine
ultra sound, sediment in bladder
struvite- cocci – crystals in the urine
had to set down for this, what to do, was it my fault, trying to find the right dog food that did not have feather follicles, or fish bones in the dry kibble. the dr and tech are supportive and assured me it was nothing i did. now to get lizzy back on track and feeling better. by looking at her, you would not suspect her not feeling well.
running around, happy go lucky. treatment plan, new dog food. plenty of water, to flush out those crystals, antibotics.
puppy is resting now. good night y’ll.
