Thankful for… Day 14

We had a little bit of a scare yesterday that Derby was sick. He’d gone in 2 weeks ago for a urinary tract infection and seemed to be doing well. Yesterday was his recheck, and after doing the urinalysis the vet tech said something was wrong with the dilution of his urine and the vet wanted to run bloodwork. Could be nothing, could be kidneys shitting down, cushings, thyroid, liver, anything, but she wanted to be sure.

Having just lost Aspen a few weeks back my mind immediately went to the worst case scenario and I was trying to keep myself from getting upset. He’s only 8 and a half but he’s had a lot of health problems and has been on medication most of his life.

Luckily we got the call this morning that his bloodwork is perfect. “I’m just not sure why his urine is so dilute”, the vet said.

“Dilute? So too much water?” I responded. “Yes”

Well hell, I can tell you why. He eats Honest Kitchen, which is a dehydrated food. I add a cup and a half of warm water to that every day. For a 20lb dog. And that’s on top of what he drinks from his water bowl.

“Oh” she said. “That’s very possible”

So today I’m very thankful that there’s nothing wrong with my Derby-Dog. I just couldn’t stand it if there was something serious this close to Aspen’s passing. Thank you thank you thank you. ❤
