Sammy's not old either.. that's whats been hard about it too. He's only 7. Initially, docs thought he had kidney failure. 2nd opinion proved that to be false. All his labs are way way improved. His organ levels are all normal again. His red bloods are normal again. His white are still elevated slightly but they said that's normal with prednisone. He's had xrays and ultrasounds and iv's and labs after labs after labs.. we can't find anything. When we took him in.. he was 71lbs and not eating or drinking. Now he's back up to almost 100lbs (normal for him) and eating and drinking and acting like his normal hyper self.
On top of that, my mother paid 4k for the ER hospital. We paid 1k for his normal vet bills plus all the carpet cleaning .. not to mention the special food we had to buy which wasn't included in the vet bills.
sooo I have my mom telling me that he's her investment and I can't let anything happen to him. I mean obviously I love my animal so I'm not going to hurt him but I'm extremely frustrated.
We could keep him in the basement which is a cement floor right now and does have a door.. but Sammy with bark and bark and bark until he can bark no more! He will literally bark all day and there's no easy way outside from there so it would be a total pain. More than cleaning this.. I don't know.. probably a toss up.
