Glomerulonephritis

Found out a few minutes ago Rudy has this. Going back today for more tests.........urine culture, xrays, ultrasound if needed, and full tick panel. Vet said she is going to start doxy regardless.

Any experience or tips for diet? Vet mentioned kidney diet, but I know those are crappy.

I'm a little frazzled so bear with me. This was totally unexpected.

Thanks for any help. Vet did say so far he isn't in kidney failure. What set it off was low albium (sp?) in blood panel and blood in urine. Another # was as 7, but should be at .2? I don't think she said it was creatnine level, it was something else.

I got a dog for my husband. It was a good trade.

LILLY and RUDY
